White Gold Necklace

Gold necklaces are traditional but how about a white gold necklace for a change?

A white gold necklace can look quite striking especially with the right clothes and some food fashion sense.

White gold is simply gold that has been mixed with other metals such as platinum, palladium and silver. To produce that white gold effect. Often it is coated or plated in Rhodium or Platinum to enhance the white sparkle and shine.

Most of the time it is 14 carat which means just over half the content is gold and the balance will be the other metals(s). this also increases the hardness and therefore durability of the necklace.

A necklace should also be large enough to fit comfortably but not too long that it catches on something when moving around or bending down. It should also be adjustable as sometime one might want to wear a shorter necklace that fits around the neck rather than on the top of the chest. This depends largely on the body build and also on the cloths being warn. If you are wearing a high neckline then a shorter necklace would be the order of the day. A deeper V line or neckline might encourage a longer necklace.

Either way it is important to get some versatility if possible on one’s necklaces.
