Wearing Gold?

Wearing Gold?

Is it as safe as anywhere for a man to wear a gold necklace? Or should common sense prevail...?

Never had an issue in 20 plus years wearing one, and have received many compliments on it as well over the years from locals and tourists alike; however, mine isn't Mr T or Rapper sized bling either.

Use your aforementioned common sense and if you plan on water sports, secure it properly; if scuba, snuba or snorkeling just be aware that some fish find the shiny jewelry, especially silver, shall we say, enticing. ;-)

Usually, no big deal though.

I've worn necklaces in town and on resort and never had an issue. I wouldn't necessarily bring/ wear my very best, and don't wear my engagement ring, but that is as much because of playing in the ocean/water and more chances to lose jewelry or have it break as for any other reason. No worse time to break a necklace as on a hobie cat or something when it falls into the ocean never to be seen again :-(.

I have never had a problem wearing gold necklace and gold bracelet..I would suggest you take it to a local jeweler and have them inspect the clasp..You wouldn't want it to break...

The locals wear much gold jewelry and apparently no problem. I would worry more about expensive cellular phones and electronic devices than gold.
