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.
TEXTURED: A unique and varying finish with a tactile surface applied through various techniques, both by hand and with machinery.
SAFETY CHAIN: A chain that is attached to both sides of the opening for a necklace or bracelet. It provides an extra measure of security in case the main clasp fails.
MALACHITE: Once prized for its protective powers, malachite is now favored for its natural beauty and rich color variations. The stone has a textural appearance, showing off a range of green shades, and oftentimes a unique banded pattern.
