Gold Over Sterling
STERLING SILVER: Also known as "Standard Silver," sterling silver is silver alloyed with other metals to increase the hardness and durability. Generally, sterling is 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals. Some sterling silver jewelry is plated with 14kt-18kt gold and referred to as "vermeil," or "gold over sterling."
SATIN: A finish with a smooth, frost-like appearance. Is soft to the touch, but doesn't have the same mirror-like shine as a polished piece.
POLISHED: A buffed-out finish used to produce a mirror-like shine.
ROLO: A chain comprised of interlocking circle-links.
LOBSTER CLASP: named after the pinching style of the hook, this clasp is often shaped like a lobster's claw. Use your finger to work the lever to open the clasp.
I've never purchased from Ross Simons until purchasing the necklace and a pearl ring with gem stone going around like a flower. These pieces are beautiful, one would never know that they are sterling silver with gold dipped. Customer service is very good, as well as the prices. Thanks for being there.
