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."
LEVER: An earring backing with a hook-shaped insert and a hinged leverback to hold it in place.
AMETHYST: A natural variety of quartz, amethyst ranges in color from deep purple to pale lavender, and even to warm greens. Amethyst has been used during meditation to provide a sense of spiritual balance. Amethyst is the birthstone of February.
CUSHION: A gemstone that features a rounded square shape. The facet arrangement can be either a type of modified brilliant cut or a checkerboard pattern.
TANZANITE: Found in the 1960's, tanzanite is new and rare discovery that captures magnificent shades of purple, violet and blue. Its crystal structure allows light to enter the stone and divide into two or three sectors which enhances the intensity of color. Tanzanite is an alternate for December birthstones.
