Product Details (for C. 1990 Vintage 6.65 ct. t.w. Emerald and 4.30 ct. t.w. Diamond Drop Earrings in Sterling Silver and Palladium)
DROP: A dangling or stationary detail which "drops" from a bale, strand or earring backing.
STERLING SILVER: Also known as "Standard Silver," sterling silver is silver alloyed with other metals to increase the hardness and durability. Generally, sterling is 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals. Some sterling silver jewelry is plated with 14kt-18kt gold and referred to as "vermeil," or "gold over sterling."
Silver and Palladium
PALLADIUM: A member of the platinum metal group, palladium is one of the rarest kinds of precious metals. It is naturally white, durable, lightweight, and resilient to discoloration. Most palladium in jewelry is at least 95% pure since it does not require alloys or plating.
POLISHED: A buffed-out finish used to produce a mirror-like shine.
CLIP/POST: An earring with a post insert and a clip mechanism to hold it in place. The post can be removed by a jeweler to convert the earrings to clip-on.
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.
