Here’s why women love white gold necklaces
Who wouldn’t be charmed by the elegant yet sensuous allure of white gold that looks so lovely on every skin tone! And here are four reasons why so many women insist white gold necklaces.
♥ Necklaces crafted in solid white gold are a must-have for your jewellery box because they are valuable, durable and incredibly elegant
♥ White gold is a perfect substitute for the more expensive platinum and less durable silver, encapsulating the best of both metals
♥ What’s more, the lustrous, understated variation of pure white gold radiates a scintillating shine in sophisticated silvery-white tones, which is a sheer pleasure to wear and own
♥ Modern designers love the creative freedom of working with the cool, white-hued precious metal, white gold, to handcraft beautiful necklaces
A question we are asked often: Is white gold real gold?
Indeed, it is! White gold is just as precious as yellow or rose gold. It is a mix of pure 24 karat gold with a strong alloy like palladium. The durability of white gold depends on the amount of alloy mixed in pure gold. Plus, a top plating of rhodium on white gold not only strengthens its surface, it also adds lustre and the silver-white tone to the pale yellowish hue of 14k-18k white gold.
Designer white gold necklace chains: All you need to know
Probably unmatched in its variations and styles for necklaces, the white gold chain necklace is a fabulous option when you want to do away with accessories. A designer white gold chain can hold its own without the need for pendants. Its a pure delight to behold its symmetry, craftsmanship and design aesthetics.
Is white gold suitable for chains?
A well-designed 18k white gold chain is not just light and attractive to wear on its own, but it’s strong enough to sport your favourite pendant. If you are looking to wear a heavier pendant, 14k white gold chains are a better and more affordable option. Chains with higher gold karatage (above 18k) are more malleable and softer, but the rhodium plating on white gold chains makes them more resilient and stronger.
Our Necklace Size Guide offers handy tips for the perfect chain size selection.
Types of white gold chains
White gold chains can be solid gold or hollow. Solid white gold chains are more expensive than their hollow version, but they are far more robust and less inclined to damage. Hollow chains are affordable, light, and easy to wear, but they are also more likely to get dented, and need more delicate care to last longer.
Let’s talk about the more en vogue white gold chain styles here. Link chains like herringbone, omega and snake chains need extra careful handling, as these tend to form kinks and can tangle in your hair and attire. Anchor, curb, rolo, figaro and box chains are more popular and easier to manage.
Selecting the right white gold chain clasp
White gold chains usually close with a round spring clasp or a lobster clasp. The lobster clasp is hands down the preferred fastener for white gold link chains. Its mechanism is solid, which ensures it is sturdy and will not open by itself.
White gold necklace styles for women
White gold necklaces resonate with a sophisticated and serene aura. A necklace is jewellery worn around the neck and may come embellished with gemstones or be plain in design. Necklaces are often identified by its material and pendants it carries. It may carry an integrated pendant as a focal point of interset or you can remove or add pendants to the necklace chain. Below are some of the beautiful styles you will find in our white gold necklace collections.
