Marc Bendall offers necklaces made of three types of gold: rose gold, white gold, and yellow gold. You can also choose between 9ct and 18ct gold varieties.


Having been working with jewellery for more than forty years, Marc Bendall is a one-of-a-kind jewellery designer.  Marc designed and created each of his handmade necklaces using his decades-long expertise and passion for the craft. 

Marc works skillfully with white gold, rose gold and yellow gold, but also works with Platinum, Palladium and Sterling Silver. Pure gold is too soft a material to wear as a piece of jewellery, hence the addition of other metals to make up 9ct, 14ct, 18ct. or 22ct ct.  22carat is the minimum carat gold a jeweller can successfully work with.

The type of gold you choose is entirely a matter of personal preference. You might consider what colour the rest of your jewellery is and what best matches your skin tone.

Yellow gold is the purest type of gold. It gets mixed with other metals simply to give it strength. People with warm skin tones especially suit yellow gold. 

White gold is made by mixing gold with palladium or silver. Its gorgeous, pure white finish looks striking against cool skin tones.

Rose gold is a gold and copper alloy, and while it has a soft and romantic look, this alloy is actually the strongest of the three types of gold. All skin tones look equally beautiful with rose gold.

As a finite resource, the value of gold continues to increase. This makes it a suitable metal to choose for precious, cherished jewellery items.
