YELLOW GOLD: Gold is a precious metal with a natural yellow color. It is quite soft and often alloyed with other metals to increase its strength. The purity of the metal is indicated by a unit called a "karat," with 24kt having the highest percentage of natural gold.
DIAMOND-CUT: A finish that incorporates highly polished cuts or facets which create a reflective sparkle similar to the appearance of diamonds.
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.
The weight/solidity of these huggies is a little less than I expected, but they are beautiful. I had a pair but lost one, and I've been searching for months for replacement earrings. These I sleep, bathe and work in. They are great. And the customer service handled a boo boo extremely well. I love Ross Simons!
