18kt Pendant with 9kt chain?
Hey everyone,

I have an 18kt pendant my hubby gave me, but I don't have a chain for it, I would like to buy one but I dont want to spend too much $$ on a chain right now, I was wondering if there is any reason I shouldn't wear an 18kt pendent with a 9kt chain?

Will one damage the other?

If I just wear it occasionally like once a month should it be ok?

I have worn the cameo as a brooch a couple of times but on the most recent wear I almost lost it Confused luckily a friend had seen me wearing it earlier and returned it to me, but because the catch is a bit iffy I would like to wear it as a pendant in future.

Thanks for any advice!

Nat

I think if you aren't going to wear it a whole lot, then it won't be a big deal. The 9K will wear down the 18K over time. What color is the gold? You might notice a slight difference in color.

Have you checked eBay? I've found some fairly priced chains there in the past.

I don't think it will be a big problem.

I even wear 9k next to an 18K ring, with no impact over three years of heavy wear Smile

I get distracted by shiny things

Maybe I should just keep an eye on it and if it starts to wear through take it to the jeweller to fix it up.

This is the chain I was looking at (I am in Australia) which is from ebay:

It does look a little lighter in colour than the Cameo border, I will keep looking Smile

Gorgeous cameo!! I am pedantic and would want 18k to match, but if the colour doesn't bother you just watch that the 9k does not damage that amazing pendant.

Thanks ladies Smile

I might keep looking and see if I can find an 18kt for a comparable price.

I got a good price on an 18k chain for mine on ebay. However I will also tell you this: I *personally* would be quicker to go 14k gold filled than 9k. I think it would be a better match, and it would hold up quite well. It's also pretty cheap.

Have you also been watching DB and LT?
