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.
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.
SPINEL: This rare and durable gemstone, found in a beguiling shade of inky black, catches the eye when set in rings, bracelets, necklaces and earrings. Spinel's red glow is also very beautiful in its own right and in ages past it was mistaken for a ruby. Spinel is also found in captivating tones of pink, purple and green.
SYNTHETIC SPINEL: A gemstone that is created in a laboratory to mimic the actual properties of a natural spinel. Commonly known as "created spinel," it can come in all the same varying shades, but is much more affordable. Traditionally made in a transparent blue.
