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.
POST/CLUTCH: An earring with a post insert and a slide-on clutch backing to hold it in place.
OPAL: With an iridescent luster that can reveal a beautiful kaleidoscope of color, the opal has inspired many myths and legends. A white opal with swirls of soft pastel shades is popular for jewelry, but opals also come in black and blue. Opal is the gemstone for October birthdays.
PEAR: Similar to the outline of a pear fruit, this is a round shape that comes to a point on one side.
CABOCHON: A style of cutting gemstones to achieve a smooth, domed surface with an absence of facets.
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.
BRILLIANT: A gemstone cut to enhance brilliance without sacrificing much carat weight. Typically has 58 facets.
Color Grade I-J: Near-colorless
CLARITY SI1-SI2: Slightly Included. Inclusions are noticeable under 10x magnification.
