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.
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.

Â This is a very pretty necklace but because of color graduations turquoise beads are usually off in actual color match. It is a substantial piece and with my gold ball earrings is really very pretty.

Â The Turquoise Beads are very nice. Â I bought this necklace to go with a pair of white agate and turquoise earrings I got from R&S. Â The blue is perfect. Â However, the reason I gave this an Average is because of the clasp. Â I have sent other necklaces back because of the fishhook clasp. Â I am not a fan of the fishhook clasp. Â There is a substancial weight to some necklaces were it is very hard to put on with a fishhook and take off, sometimes breaks too. Â They don't show the clasp in the pictures, but I will not buy another necklace with a fishhook clasp. I am keeping this one.
