I have several bright shiny gold rings, any idea how to make it look "aged"?

As in darker and not shiny?


Thanks for you help!

the best way is to play around with an oxidizing agent. you can pick it up at jewlery supply stores, and maybe crafting stores. Then if its a coated surface gently rub with steel wool, and sip in oxidizer until desired effect is reached, and rinse or pat dry. Voila!
