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!

one way i know how to make brass look aged is to paint on black acrylic paint then before it dries completly rub it it make brass look antiqued maybe that would work on gold

my hobbies are  crochet sewing embriodery craft felt drawing painting comic books short stories poetry reading a hampster a mouse and a guinea pig soft toy and doll making clothes piano  maybe in the near future violin needle felting knitting  cross stitch another guinea pig and some new langauges

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!
