THey are not golden as "made of gold" but just gold plated. It is normal to loose their color with time. GO to some jewelry store and ask the question, they know this business wink.gif

You can use Jewelry polish to make the gold plated screws color last longer.
Just go to a jewelry store and ask them what they use to polish gold, and there you have it smile.gif

If the gold already have come off, I don't think you can do much..

Good luck anyway smile.gif

DOn't really know, maybe they were exposed to some chemicals during trasport or something who knows. unsure.gif Try your local dealer, or maybe a jeweler.
