Gold necklaces and bracelets have been around for countless generations.
There are many reasons for gold's popularity. In addition to its monetary
value, gold is also one of the most resistant metals to tarnish. Also,
because of it's purity, gold (like sterling silver) is much less likely to react negatively with your skin.
Another benefit of buying real gold jewelry is that there is no plating that
will wear off over time. This means that, if you buy a personalized gold
bracelet, or an
18k gold necklace you don't have to worry about the metal wearing down to
reveal a less attractive metal underneath the gold. Gold plated and gold
tone jewelry on the other hand, are made in this fashion and will not look good
for as long as solid gold jewelry items.
