Everyday!!! I don't even take it off when I sleep.
I used to shower wearing it but I heard its damaging so I stopped.
Thinking about getting it for my birthday and was wondering if it's going to be a daily wear type necklace.

I currently don't wear necklaces...can you tell me if it gets tangled in your hair?

I wear my rose gold vintage Alhambra pendant 24/7 when it's in rotation.....since it's all gold I don't worry about it.

Adore mine....highly recommended!
How long have you had it? Do you notice the rose gold fading?

I have a rose gold bracelet that faded and looks like yellow gold now, so I am a bit hesitant. I like the rose gold pendant more but leaning towards the yellow gold/mother of pearl pendant because of the fading.

Do you plant to wear it as a "permanent jewelry 24/7"? If yes, MOP may not be a good choice cos pearl is not supposed to be exposed to soap too often. I understand some owners wear them all the time and didn't notice any damage but it's really not recommended and it may be the reason why some used Alhambra stones/pearl have less luster or have shrinkage (more gaps between the setting).
I have 2 10 motifs MOP Alhambra Vintage necklaces and will never wear them to shower.

My bday is tomorrow and I got it on my bday last year, so it's been a year exactly!! No fading at all that I've noticed. Can't imagine fading at the VCA level but who knows. I also have the rose gold sweet Alhambra 6-motif bracelet (got it in July'16) and have not taken it off since getting it! Still looks perfect to me!

Happy early birthday! My birthday is next week so I am looking for a gift for my husband to buy me.

Do you shower with it or do you take if off?

My rose gold Cartier faded :sad:

Yes I do shower with it on. I'm so surprised your Cartier faded.
