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."
GOLD OVER STERLING: Sometimes referred to as “vermeil,” this metal is gold-plated sterling silver. It is one of the most desirable gold-plated metals and can come in 14kt-24kt yellow, white, or rose.
POLISHED: A buffed-out finish used to produce a mirror-like shine.
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.

Nice necklace. I would have preferred a creamier color. This was a touch to the blue/grey side that did not work for me. However, necklace was nicely made and fairly priced. The vermeill beads interspersed with the coin pearls was a lovely touch. I would also have preferred to have the pearls individually knotted.

Beautiful pearls and design. Horrible clasp,extremely hard to put on.
Clasp is much too small and extremely difficult to operate. Anyone with the slightest bit of arthritis in the thumbs will find this a maddening challenge.
