STUD: An earring that sits stationary on the ear and doesn't drop below the lobe.
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.
POST/CLUTCH: An earring with a post insert and a slide-on clutch backing to hold it in place.

These earrings match a necklace I received as a gift perfectly - in color, shape and cut. My only criticism would be that the earring backs are very small and don't support the weight of the earrings. As a result, they look like they are falling out. I will need to purchase another larger pair of backs before I can wear these. The lack of an appropriate earring back is the reason for the rating, as backs are an integral component of any pair of earrings. The customer service staff are outstanding! When my package arrived in the mail it had been torn and the earrings stolen. They were replaced free of charge with no hassle, and shipped via an alternative carrier.
