    If it’s the edible stuff then it’s quite different from keum boo gold. I do know you can buy it from silver clay companies cheaper than Cookson but not at that price. You could try multiple layers to get a decent thickness for burnishing

    Again, it's Wish. Accurate product descriptions are not their forte.

    By way of comparison, here's a UK site offering edible gold leaf -

    Over on the Society of British Jewellers group, someone has gone to the trouble of buying some jewellery from Wish and having it XRF tested.

    First part of her blog is up here -

    Part 2 is impending - spoiler: 30% cadmium, copper, zinc - zero silver.

    I’d never heard of Wish before now, perhaps for the best!

    Yeah, someone else in a Facebook jewellers group (not Laura/Small Dog Silver) bought a couple of items that were being sold for less than 5 to see what turned up given that the description was silver and sapphire and the photos were beautiful. Obviously it was no such thing and although it was obviously copied from the photos they'd used it was total cr@p. But he also reverse googled the photos to find the original maker to let him know. Wish is a nightmare.
