18KT: Karat (abbreviated kt or K) is a unit that indicates the purity of gold in the metal. 18kt is 75% gold. In Europe, 18K 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.
REVOLVER: A safety that conceals the point of a pin and keeps it in place with a revolving lever mechanism.
RECONSTITUTED TURQUOISE: Reconstituted turquoise is composed of ground-up natural turquoise molded into a solid stone with the use of a binding agent. It is much more affordable than regular, natural turquoise.
MARQUISE: An elliptical shape that comes to a point at the top and bottom. Sometimes referred to as a "navette."
CABOCHON: A style of cutting gemstones to achieve a smooth, domed surface with an absence of facets.
RUBY: A bold fiery stone, the ruby is a symbol of wealth, vitality and love. When cut and polished, the ruby's high luster is as dazzling as a diamond's. Ruby jewelry makes the perfect gift for loved ones and is the birthstone for July.
All weights and measures are approximate. Most gemstones have been treated to enhance their natural beauty.
