18KT: Karat (abbreviated kt or K) is a unit that indicates the purity of gold in the metal. 18kt is 75% gold. In Europe, 18K 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.
FISHHOOK: A delicate clasp that involves a hook inserted into an oval encasing. Creates a fancy look for lightweight necklaces and bracelets.
Cultured Akoya Pearl
AKOYA PEARLS: a true classic, the akoya pearl was the first pearl to be cultured in the salt waters of Japan. Smooth, round and highly lustrous, akoya pearls captivate in traditional pearl jewelry designs, such as necklaces, bracelets and stud earrings. Pearl is the traditional birthstone for June.
