Just this month, my husband bought a gold necklace and pendant from Ongpin. That was her surprise gift for my birthday and Valentine's Day. My husband said that it was 18k Saudi gold (as indicated in the tag). But I didn't believe it was Saudi gold for the color of the neacklace and pendant look like Italian. To prove my doubt, this morning I went to two pawnshops and had my jewelry appraised. To my surprise, both pawnshops revealed that the jewerly was indeed an 18K Italy gold. If I am not mistaken, Italy gold is cheaper than Saudi or Chinese gold. I believe he paid much more than was worth the jewelry. Am I correct? or not?
