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."

CABLE: One of the most popular and classic of chain styles, created from interlocking oval links unvarying in size.

The multi-gemstone star fish pendant was a wonderful surprise. It's just lovely. The different hues of blue and purple sparkle dramatically. I love starfish anyway, so when I noticed this one on the web site, I purchased it with much expectation. I was not disappointed.
