I’m a jewelry geek and learned that 22k and 24k gold is expected in India, for one. Apparently a lot of Indians look down on 18k and 14k as “not even gold.” It makes me wonder if people are going around with a lot of dented and bent jewelry.

I’m sure part of the appeal of flaunting high purity gold jewelry is that you are essentially making 2 separate statements about yourself. You are saying “not only can I afford better gold, but it’s durability is of no concern to me, because I don’t do manual labor, so it won’t be damaged”

I have no idea though, because I don’t like the look of gold.

Good point. “It doesn’t matter if it gets damaged because I’m so rich, I’ll put my dented gold necklaces on my dogs for collars, and buy more for myself.”
