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.
WHITE GOLD: Gold is a precious metal which is naturally quite soft. To give it a white color and increase its strength, gold is alloyed with white metals, such as silver and/or palladium, and often plated with rhodium. The purity of the metal is indicated by a unit called a "karat," with 24kt having the highest percentage of natural gold.
REVOLVER: A safety that conceals the point of a pin and keeps it in place with a revolving lever mechanism.
HINGED: A bale with a hinge. The hinge allows the pendant to be placed on and taken off a chain easily and without sliding. Ideal for putting pendants on chains that have large clasps.
SHELL: A treasured gift of the sea, shell has been used for ornamentation since recorded time. Shell makes a classic choice for cameo designs and is often carved in relief to display a ladylike motif, presented in a frame of precious metal.
OVAL: An elliptical shape that resembles an egg.
CARVED: When a gemstone is cut so that the outline or surface takes the form or likeness of a specific image or pattern.
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.
OLD MINE CUT: An antique gemstone cut dating back to the 1700s. Features a rounded square silhouette similar to the modern cushion-cut, but conforms to the shape of the rough gemstone in order to preserve the weight. The culet is usually large enough to be easily seen through the table of the diamond.
