    Depending on how they plated it and how thick they plated it, it could turn ugly really quickly.

    24K? No way. 24K gold is very soft.

    Jewelers indicate the amount of gold in an alloy by the Karat system.

    24kt.: 100% Gold-very soft

    18kt.: 75% Gold-will not tarnish; softer than 14kt., but with a deeper color

    14kt.: 58.33% Gold-will not tarnish

    12kt.: 50% Gold

    10kt.: 41.6% Gold; less than 10kt. cannot be called Gold in the US or 9kt. in the UK.



    That thing will scratch worse than the back of an iPod!!
