HOOP: An earring that loops from the front of the ear to the back.
14KT: Karat (abbreviated kt or K) is a unit that indicates the purity of gold in the metal. 14kt is 58.33% gold. In the United States, 14K yellow gold is most favored and used in jewelry.
WHITE GOLD: Gold is a precious metal which is naturally quite soft. To give it a white color and increase its strength, gold is alloyed with white metals, such as silver and/or palladium, and often plated with rhodium. The purity of the metal is indicated by a unit called a "karat," with 24kt having the highest percentage of natural gold.
POLISHED: A buffed-out finish used to produce a mirror-like shine.
HINGED: A bale with a hinge. The hinge allows the pendant to be placed on and taken off a chain easily and without sliding. Ideal for putting pendants on chains that have large clasps.
HINGED POST: An earring with a straight post insert and a hinged backing to hold it in place.
Stones per Earring:
Diamond: The hardest and most brilliant of all gemstones, a diamond can make the heart race with its pure and fiery spark. An ancient symbol of love, a diamond is the preferred gemstone for tokens of affection, such as rings, earrings, necklaces and bracelets. Diamond is the birthstone for April.

Bottom Line: I would recommend this to a friend!
2.0 out of 5.0
Beautiful earrings but bad clasps
When I clasp the earring shut, it does not stay closed and even fell out of my ear. It is currently at the jewelers being repaired. This item is too expensive for me to then have to take it to a jeweler.
