Gold or Silver Jewelry, Which One Do You Prefer?
September 17, 2009 9:50am CST
I like both gold and silver jewelry but I must admit that I prefer gold jewelry(yellow over white gold)over silver jewelry. For one, silver is a bit difficult to maintain (once it turns black, you have to dip it in a silver cleaner) whereas with gold, you just clean it once in a while or even less often. Price-wise, silver is of course cheaper than gold but I find that gold is of a stronger material. What is your preference?

Gold or Silver.....I will GO FOR THE GOLD! Gold is bright and really catchy too. However I prefer the unique designs not the bulky ones. I absolutely agree with you, the silver costume jewelleries is harder to maintain especially if we always use parfume Moreover, talking about resale value..Gold fetch better price. At the moment the 916 Gold are selling at RM127 per gram. (USD1 = RM3.5)

Hi akashvermabba, I do have a strong affinity for gold jewelry and as your rightly said, white gold is very nice. Lately though, I settle for silver jewelry because gold is becoming expensive. But if I were given a choice, I would definitely go for yellow gold, with gemstones on it. Thank you for the response and have fun posting.

hi Involve, For me, I don't have any silver jewelry now. What I have are gold and white gold. I like white gold the most. For silver, it is not only difficult to maintain, of all, it does cause inflammation or redness to my earlobes if I wear silver earrings and redness around my neck if I wear silver necklace.

I like white gold as well but I have a few of them amongst my jewelry. I like to put on white gold hoops the best when I'm wearing a black shirt. Gives that nice contrast. Sorry to hear about your allergic reaction to silver. I get them all the time whether it's silver or gold. But, hardly a day goes by without me putting on earrings. Thank you for participating in my discussion.

Hi involved, I am a guy and don't wear any kind of jewelery but the woman in my family prefer gold. My sister or mother would always be buying gold to wear though they might have plates of silver. Yes silver is very cheap as compared to gold and thats why gold is brought in ounces while silver in multiples of 100 grams and also silver needs more maintainance than gold and in jewelery gold looks much better than silver.

Hello Agrim, Thank you for the reply. No gold or silver jewelry as yet, huh? Probably when you get married. My husband had alreay gold rings passed on to him by his favorite grandmother and his beloved mother which he wears in a gold necklace (rings as oendants). He wears his gold wedding ring more often than I do. He's more devoted to me or the gold ring? Just kidding. He prefers gold over silver like me.

for me i would rather choose the silver one than the gold one,it because the gold one is very eye catching to the bad people so i always wear two rings of silver and one bracelet and now a days even silver jewelry is also eye catching too especially to the solvent boys in the streets.
