  • No I don't think so. The silver might eventually tarnish but that can easily be fixed. The gold should be fine.

  • Yes if the gold plating wears off. A Jeweler can always re-plate (dip) the ring in gold again too.

  • It's the other metals mixed with the gold that turn colors, usually nickel. Take the piece to a jeweler, who can look at it and tell you what you're dealing with.
