STERLING SILVER: Also known as "Standard Silver," sterling silver is silver alloyed with other metals to increase the hardness and durability. Generally, sterling is 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals. Some sterling silver jewelry is plated with 14kt-18kt gold and referred to as "vermeil," or "gold over sterling."
POLISHED: A buffed-out finish used to produce a mirror-like shine.
LOBSTER CLASP: named after the pinching style of the hook, this clasp is often shaped like a lobster's claw. Use your finger to work the lever to open the clasp.
Cultured Freshwater Pearl

2.0 out of 5.0
Picture looks way better than the actual product.
Was very disappointed. The picture makes the necklace look very thick and tightly wound. In reality, it is flimsy and not sturdy at all. Â Looks much cheaper , almost like a poor costume jewelry piece.
