No, gold is a softer type of metal. Its easily dented and scratched, but they add other minerals that make it stronger gold before they will make necklaces, watches, ect. That's why they have the Karats for gold. The higher the number of K's the more easily gold tends to dent and whatnot.

Gold isn't the strongest metal, but it's a durable metal and it doesn't bend easily - there are metals that are a lot weaker than gold.
