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.
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.
CARNELIAN: A brownish-red mineral, carnelian has been used for centuries to make engraved gems and signet rings, intaglios and especially seal rings, because hot wax does not adhere to it. Its name comes from the Latin word for cherry, since the lush red color of the carnelian so resembles the vivid red fruit.
