10KT: Karat (abbreviated kt or K) is a unit that indicates the purity of gold in the metal. 10kt is 41.67% gold.
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.
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 EUROPEAN CUT: An old-fashioned gemstone cut dating back to the 1800s. With a round shape and 58 facets, it is considered the precursor to the modern brilliant-cut. However, it has a greater depth and smaller table than the brilliant-cut of today.
Clarity VS2: Very slightly included. Inclusions are observed with effort under 10x magnification, but can be characterized as minor.
All weights and measures are approximate.
