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.
WHITE GOLD: Gold is a precious metal which is naturally quite soft. To give it a white color and increase its strength, gold is alloyed with white metals, such as silver and/or palladium, and often plated with rhodium. The purity of the metal is indicated by a unit called a "karat," with 24kt having the highest percentage of natural gold.
POLISHED: A buffed-out finish used to produce a mirror-like shine.
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.
MOISSANITE: An exceedingly rare near-colorless gemstone prized for its bright shine and rainbowing facets. Many feel that moissanite is a good alternative to diamonds, especially since it has a more striking brilliance. Because it is so uncommon, most moissanites on the market are synthetic. All of our moissanites are lab-created to ensure the highest quality for the best value.
