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.
RHODIUM: is an extremely expensive white precious metal. Due to its extreme hardness, Rhodium is often used to plate precious and base metals, giving jewelry a hard, platinum-like sheen.
LEVER: An earring backing with a hook-shaped insert and a hinged leverback to hold it in place.
