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.
ROPE: Chain links that are twisted or looped together in a pattern that creates a look similar to that of a rope.
SPRINGRING CLASP: Invented in the early 1900s this diminutive device is highly effective. It's a hollow circular metal fastener with a spring opening. This keeps the clasp closed.
I have ordered several crosses for my sons' communion. They were all too big, too feminine. This cross was perfect and he's happy.

Cross is exactly as depicted
The chain is very delicate. Â Unfortunately from the picture you cannot see the chain at all. Â This necklace is a present for a 3 year old boy. Â We'll see how well this chain will hold up!
The cross however is exactly as depicted.
Overall I am satisfied with my purchase.
