Do vintage Chanel bags have real gold?

1 Answer
Do vintage Chanel bags have real gold?
Yes, some vintage Chanel bags have real gold on their chain straps and hardware. Specifically, Chanel utilized 24-karat gold alloy plating on its pieces prior to 2008. After that, Chanel switched to a gold-tone metal that doesn't contain pure gold. Shop a selection of Chanel bags on 1stDibs.
