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.
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.
Diamond: The hardest and most brilliant of all gemstones, a diamond can make the heart race with its pure and fiery spark. An ancient symbol of love, a diamond is the preferred gemstone for tokens of affection, such as rings, earrings, necklaces and bracelets. Diamond is the birthstone for April.
AQUAMARINE: The birthstone of March, harbinger of spring, aquamarine's powers of revelation are legendary. Usually cut as a brilliant or a step cut, and a member of the beryl family, aquamarine can be found in a range of pale blue hues and aqua green colors.

Got my wife this necklace as a "push present" for giving birth to our son, who was born in March (March birthstone: Aquamarine). She absolutely loves the necklace, it sparkles like a diamond, and it's actually bigger than I thought it would be! Would definitely recommend it.

Beautiful Pendant but Necklace is Lacking
I love the pendant and can't find any fault with the gemstone--its cut and bright light blue color are great, and the sparkle of the diamonds really enhances it. Bu the white gold necklace is such a dull gray color that many of my silver necklaces look more like white gold than this does, and it's extremely thin. For now I'm acually wearing the pendant with a silver necklace that looks brighter than the chain it came with. I'm still glad I bought it, though.
