Pearl Gold Bracelet

A pearl gold bracelet can look really beautiful if it is done right. Getting the right pearl is important and ensuring it fits in well with the gold bracelet.

A good quality bracelet is important, 14 or `18 karat gold is good because it is not too soft and is sturdy enough o be worn every day if required. 14 Karat gold would be about 55 percent gold and the balance silver, palladium or some other harder metal to give durability. 18 Karat gold would have about 85 percent gold and the rest metal. 22 and 24 karat gold would probably be too soft to wear so much and such bracelets should really be reserved for special occasions when they are not worn very often.

Pearls come in a diverse range of types and sizes and qualities. From the romantic black pearls of the south seas to the shiny lustrous freshwater pearls and famous akoya pearls from the orient.

Much information on pearls and choosing them can be found at All About Pearls where information on the various types can be found.

Do ensure that if you are looking for a pearl gold bracelet that you do lots of window shopping and checking around at what is available. Ask lots of question and really get to know what is available. There is nothing like due diligence when it comes to buying something that can be quite expensive.

Maintaining a pearl gold bracelet is important, especially if you are wearing it a lot. The gold and other metals and even the pearl can be subject to an amazing range of oils, creams, perfumes and body fluids, many of which can react adversely to the bracelet. It pays to keep it in good condition. A wash in warm soapy water and well rinsed to get off any grime and then well dried will help to keep it in good condition.

Keeping in mind the above will help to ensure that you have a pearl gold bracelet that lasts for a lifetime and gives you great pleasure!
