Generally, 18c jewelry originates in the UK- simply different spellings! In USA we spell the gold content "Karat" in UK it's "Carat". Though, I believe generally it's 18CT rather than 18C.

Why does gold look dull after sometime?

Gold is a very soft metal and can be scratched easily. Hundreds or thousands of minute scratches can make a gold item that was once shiny look very dull. A jeweler can buff it for you and make it shiny again, although some antique pieces look better slightly dull. Some jewelers will do it for free as a service to keep you in their store longer so you might see something you like and buy it. Other jewelers will charge a small fee. Also, some gold items have been intentionally dulled by etching or scratching the surface to make them less shiny. Ask your jeweler if yours is one of these pieces.

Cheap gold maybe found in the auction filter lists on eBay.
