It's never too early to start accessorizing! A testament to good taste and individual expression, our child's pearl bracelet gleams with 4-4.5mm cultured freshwater pearls. Bracelet presented with 14kt yellow gold springring clasp.
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.
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.
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.
Cultured Freshwater Pearl
CULTURED PEARLS: Likened to the moon, pearls have been valued for their luminous glow and natural beauty for thousands of years. Today, high-quality cultured freshwater pearls make pearl jewelry affordable to all. Pearl is the traditional birthstone for the month of June.
(Color: White, Shape & Cutting Style: Oval,
OVAL: An elliptical shape that resembles an egg.
Size: 4-4.5 mm)
The bracelet is darling. The gold clasp looks more fragile than I wanted to see on a piece of baby jewelry. Since most young mothers are silver rather than gold jewelry wearers themselves, upon reflection the next baby bracelet I buy will fasten with silver rather than gold.
