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.

I bought these for my daughter's birthday. When she opened the bag she was delighted with the way the light reflected off these perfectly sized earrrings. Lots of sparkle!

4.0 out of 5.0
Great earrings; need to improve back
I like to wear the CZs in place of real diamonds during the day or on vacations; if I lose them, no big deal. I bought these to replace a Ross Simons CZ round 4cw studs (I lost one of those). While I think the pricess cut is more stylish, the cut isn't the best (looks a little fake). The back securing the earring is very small and hard to attach to the earring. They don't feel very secure.
