YELLOW GOLD: Gold is a precious metal with a natural yellow color. It is quite soft and often alloyed with other metals to increase its strength. 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.

SYNTHETIC SAPPHIRE: A gemstone that is created in a laboratory to mimic the actual properties of a natural sapphire. Commonly known as "created sapphire," it features the same deep color and transparent sparkle, but is significantly more affordable than a sapphire found in nature.
