Currently, I buy necklaces from places like Nordstrom Rack, J-Crew, Ann Taylor, etc... for under $50. Within a few months, the plating wears off and the chains looks pink and/or a tarnished dark brown. I tend to sweat a lot on my neck and I suspect that is eating away at the plating.
- Should I invest in silver/gold necklaces? Are there other resistant materials I should look into? Would those also get ruined from sweat? How would I maintain them?
- Where would I buy such necklaces? Online? What stores? What should I be looking for? What are some reliable jewelry brands?
I'm not looking to break the bank but if I spent 100-250 dollars on a necklace that was really nice and of high quality, I think I'd be happy. I like vintage-looking jewelry. I also like chunky, bold statement types of jewelry-- so I'm not looking for a plain silver pendant or anything along those lines.
