Is there a big difference between 10k and 14k gold chains? My husband wants a chain he can wear all the time. Should I get 10k or 14k?

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Of course the BIG difference is in price! You have an excellent site in the 24carat.co. Depending upon your husband's chemical make-up he will soon notice if he has a reaction to gold. At that point, his system may be acidic.
