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.
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.
REVOLVER: A safety that conceals the point of a pin and keeps it in place with a revolving lever mechanism.
FIXED: A bale that is worked into the actual design of a pendant. Typically seen in slide pendants.
SAPPHIRE: A favorite gemstone of ancient priests and royalty, the sapphire radiates sophistication and grace. This prized gem comes in every hue of blue, plus the more unexpected shades of pink, yellow, green and orange, and is September's birthstone.

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.
