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."
Silver and Silicone
SILICONE: A rubber-like synthetic polymer created from silicon combined with other elements or compounds, such as carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. It is quite supple and sometimes used as a core for gold jewelry to provide a lightweight flexibility.
POLISHED: A buffed-out finish used to produce a mirror-like shine.
SHELL: A treasured gift of the sea, shell has been used for ornamentation since recorded time. Shell makes a classic choice for cameo designs and is often carved in relief to display a ladylike motif, presented in a frame of precious metal.
