Product Details (for C. 1990 Vintage 4.30 ct. t.w. Sapphire and 1.25 ct. t.w. Diamond Drop Earrings in Sterling Silver and Platinum)
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 Platinum
PLATINUM: A rare precious metal cherished for its longevity and strength. Platinum is naturally white, durable, dense, and resilient to discoloration. Most platinum in jewelry is at least 95% pure since it does not require alloys or plating.
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.
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.
