Big geometric shapes in pastel shades: this bracelet features round and square chalcedony in pink, green, and blue. Includes a 1/2" extender and a lobster clasp. 14kt yellow gold over sterling silver bracelet.
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.
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."
POLISHED: A buffed-out finish used to produce a mirror-like shine.
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.
CHALCEDONY: a family of minerals that is often milky gray or bluish in color. Chalcedony includes a number of stones including onyx (black), carnelian (waxy red), agate (wide ranging palette) and bloodstone (brownish red.)

The contrast in colors is not so evident -- indeed, the yellow comes off a shade of green equal in intensity as the blue. Because of the size of the stones, which do not flex around the wrist, I did need to add an extender to make it fit. Still, it makes a statement, and I did receive compliments when I wore it to a dinner party recently.Â
