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.
LOBSTER CLASP: named after the pinching style of the hook, this clasp is often shaped like a lobster's claw. Use your finger to work the lever to open the clasp.
Nephrite: One of the two mineral species of jade composed of magnesium-rich amphibole (a silicate mineral). Popularly used in China, the decorative gemstone primarily comes in light to dark green, although it can be found in yellow to brown, white, black or gray. The color is often mottled.
