Metal types used for necklaces
There are a range of different metal types used for necklaces but the most popular are silver, yellow gold and white gold.
Silver is a beautiful white metal that’s a great option due to it being long-lasting. Silver is a lot softer than some other metals though so you must give it the proper care to prevent it from tarnishing.
Gold jewellery is a mix of gold and other metals, and it’s those metals used in the alloy that determine the colour – yellow, white, rose etc. Yellow gold is the alloy of pure gold, silver and copper or zinc, and white gold is the alloy of pure gold and white metals, such as nickel, silver and palladium. White gold is plated with rhodium to give it a whiter look.
If you’re looking for something different, freshwater pearls make a great alternative to metal-based necklaces. Pair these with some pearl earrings for a supremely elegant finish to your wedding gown.
