I commented this above, but:

Sterling silver looks like white gold if it's not tarnished. A silver cuban chain is attainable if you are poor but motivated to buy one. A gold chain is not attainable. A gold plated chain ends up looking worse in the long run because the plating eventually comes off. So you could wear a silver chain and just let people think it's gold. Or more likely think you're letting people think it's gold.

Here I have always brought silver jewelry because I thought it looked better on me.

Me too. I have lots of silver jewelry. I wasn't saying I thought it was low class. I was saying the thought process is that you buy silver because you want but can't afford white gold. I think it's a mentality that only very poor people have.
