Product Details (for C. 2000 Vintage 49.10 ct. t.w. Amethyst and 1.15 ct. t.w. Diamond Drop Necklace in 14kt White Gold. 16")
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.
TEXTURED: A unique and varying finish with a tactile surface applied through various techniques, both by hand and with machinery.
POLISHED: A buffed-out finish used to produce a mirror-like shine.
ROPE: Chain links that are twisted or looped together in a pattern that creates a look similar to that of a rope.
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.
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.
