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."
POLISHED: A buffed-out finish used to produce a mirror-like shine.
POST/CLUTCH: An earring with a post insert and a slide-on clutch backing to hold it in place.
Stones per Earring:
CABLE: One of the most popular and classic of chain styles, created from interlocking oval links unvarying in size.
SPRINGRING CLASP: Invented in the early 1900s this diminutive device is highly effective. It's a hollow circular metal fastener with a spring opening. This keeps the clasp closed.
FIXED: A bale that is worked into the actual design of a pendant. Typically seen in slide pendants.
TANZANITE: A new and rare discovery (1960's) that captures magnificent shades of purple and blue. Its crystal structure allows light to enter the stone and divide into two or three sectors which enhances the intensity of color. Tanzanite is an alternate for December birthstones.

The items were as pictured, of obvious quality-very pretty. I did not realize how petite they were. I am tall and sturdy, and they looked totally tiny on me--I tried them on a petite-sized, grown up granddaughter and they were perfect. This is a gift for a 5 foot tall, 18 year-old high school senior, and I think she will love to wear them when she wants to look dressed up.. I was, however, astounded that the presentation was not as pictured, with all three displayed pleasantly together. Instead, each item was in a tiny baggie, and they were together in one large brown RS bag, in one box--I asked customer service for help, and they quickly sent ring and earring boxes, which made each item seem special, and which will look very nice wrapped for Christmas.
