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.
FISHHOOK: A delicate clasp that involves a hook inserted into an oval encasing. Creates a fancy look for lightweight necklaces and bracelets.
TURQUOISE: Typically polished and featuring a cabochon cut, turquoise is prized for its depth of color and the visual interest found in veins of matrix stone. Prized as a gemstone for 1000's of years, legend holds that turquoise has protective qualities.

I have several turquoise necklaces, and all are accented with sterling-silver. All work well and are great with jeans and other casualwear. However, this multi-stand necklace has yellow-gold accents, which is somewhat rare, and lends itself to be more dressy/formal. It looks exceptional with almost every color of the rainbow, and I receive compliments each time I wear it. This necklace is of extraordinary quality for the price and is one of my favorite pieces.
