I purchased a gold necklace for my Husband at the Walmart in North Las Vegas, located at 1807 West Craig Road, phone number is (702) 633-6521. It cost approximately $280.00 and it was bought as an anniversary gift for him. Today (July 1, 2012) we took the same necklace to two different jewelry stores and was informed that the necklace is FAKE! The only real gold in the necklace is the 10K stamped clasp! The rest of the necklace can be picked up by a magnet.

I am in total shock! This necklace has been on his neck since the day I gave it to him - has never been taken to any jewelry store or repair shop - and it is totally impossible that it has been switched by someone else (we live alone and do not have guests) - but the fact remains the same - he has NEVER taken it off since the day I gave it to him.

I will do whatever I can to make sure that the world knows what type of quality jewelry - or should I say DOWN RIGHT FAKE AND FRAUDULENT gold that Walmart is selling to its customers.

Walmart gold is exactly what they advertise. Other jewelry companies lie lie and lie to protect their overpriced jewelry. It is called greed.
Walmart has never advertised it's chains as SOLID gold. A magnet test is not even a good test to see what the base metal is. For instance a copper base metal would not be detected as a base metal with a magnet test.
When you buy gold the only test for purity is an acid test.

That is totally wrong. 10k gold and any gold jewelry will not be able to be picked up by a magnet unless it is PLATED or GOLD FILLED. If it is actually 10k gold it will NOT have any iron in the piece and will NOT be able to be moved or picked up by a magnet.

Gold plate will fade very quickly. If it were fake, you would have seen it before you ever used a magnet on it.
Why would you ask a jewelry store if it was fake? They are not interested in your necklace. They are interested in getting you to spend money with them. It is a well known fact that some jewelry stores are less than honest when it comes to 'competition'.
I had a jeweler tell me my diamond was not real, when we were discussing a band I wanted to add to my ring. I picked out my stone, and I know how to use a loupe and diamond tester. He pissed me off so much. All he wanted was to sell me a 'real' diamond.
They are unscrupulous. You want to know if your chain is real? Go to a pawn shop. They have no interest in selling you.

Do you have something that states that it is solid gold or gold plated or just gold color? Also how many carats.
This info would help your case a lot if you can prove that what they sold you was misrepresented. Otherwise you may not have a case.
At this point they may be able to say that they never said it was what you think it is.
Just a suggestion.
