PLATINUM: A rare precious metal cherished for its longevity and strength. Platinum is naturally white, durable, dense, and resilient to discoloration. Most platinum in jewelry is at least 95% pure since it does not require alloys or plating.
FILIGREE: a term for gold or silver wire that has been twisted into patterns and soldered in place. Modern stamping techniques can replicate the decorative appeal of this ancient artform.
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.
Diamond: The hardest and most brilliant of all gemstones, a diamond can make the heart race with its pure and fiery spark. An ancient symbol of love, a diamond is the preferred gemstone for tokens of affection, such as rings, earrings, necklaces and bracelets. Diamond is the birthstone for April.
