Answer

Gold is a precious metal that is used to make some jewelry. One difference between real gold and fake gold is that fake gold will eventually rust or wear away. Another difference is that real gold is not magnetic. Some fake gold jewelry is magnetic. If a jewelry accessory is affected by magnetic components then it is not real.
