Necklace Metal Options

White gold, rose gold, yellow gold (14K) and platinum are all great choices because of their durability and strength. Here are additional details on each of these metal options:

  • Platinum: Platinum is naturally a brilliant, grayish-white color. Over time, the metal does develop a patina that might make it look a little dull. If you’re looking for a hypoallergenic option with a classic, sophisticated look, then platinum is an ideal choice. It’s more expensive than gold, so keep that in mind. Platinum jewelry generally contains 85 to 95 percent pure platinum

  • Yellow gold: Yellow gold is the shiny, familiar gold that’s popular for jewelry. In general, 14K gold is only 58.3 percent pure gold. Yellow, white and rose gold typically cost around the same amount. One con with yellow gold is that it needs to be polished and cleaned regularly.

  • White gold: White gold is an alloy (mixture) composed of pure gold and durable metals such zinc, nickel, and copper. This combination gives it strength and its whiter color. White gold is more affordable than platinum. One con is that you’ll need to have it dipped every few years because its rhodium plating wears off over time. The good news is this is inexpensive.

  • Rose gold: Rose gold is made of pure gold mixed with copper and silver alloys. Rose gold is real but it’s not made entirely of gold. The copper and silver helps to strengthen it and give it its rose color. The more copper used, the redder the gold appears. Like white gold, rose gold is an alloy, so “pure rose gold” doesn’t exist for jewelry. One con is it’s not as widely available.

Necklace Buying Tips

When browsing for necklaces, have your occasion and budget in mind whether you’re buying it as a gift or for yourself. If you’re on a tight budget or prefer not to invest in a diamond necklace, you can look for necklaces with lab diamonds or cubic zirconia. Research the brand and the seller as well for their warranty information and return policy.

Keep necklaces stored in separate compartments so they don’t get tangled–either in a drawer or a jewelry organizer where you hang your necklaces. You don’t want necklaces to get damaged by other jewelry.

In addition to storing your necklace safely, you’ll also want to clean everyday debri and grime from your necklace periodically. Avoid harsh chemicals and instead use a soft-bristled brush with a fragrance-free soap or a jewelry cleaning solution to gently move the brush in circles to remove buildup. You can also soak your jewelry before using a brush.
