18 Karat White Gold

18k (75%) gold is the purest form of gold used for jewelry (pure 100% gold is 24 karats by definition). 18k means that 18 out of the 24 parts that make up the gold are pure gold. 18kwhite gold is an alloy made up of 75% pure gold and 25% palladium. 

Rhodium Plating

Rhodium comes from the platinum family and is a noble and durable metal which features a bright white color. Rhodium plating is used on silver, gold and copper gives an off-white color, creating a bright mirror-like finish. 

More benefits of rhodium plating include enhanced brightness, scratch and tarnishing resistance. It is also hypoallergenic and nickel-free. 

Chalcedony

A subgroup of quartz composed of silica with minute crystals of quartz and morganite that is translucent or milky in appearance. Found worldwide and in a huge range of color, specific varieties of chalcedony gemstones are identified and named according to their color. The term "chalcedony" when it is applied to a specific gem, implies the light blue variety. Chalcedony is said to improve vitality and health, promote generosity, and alleviate sadness or bad dreams.

Diamond

Diamonds are a form of the element carbon with a crystal structure. Diamond's great hardness relative to other materials has been known since antiquity, and is the source of its name derived from the ancient Greek ἀδάμας that means "unbreakable". 

Diamonds are the hardest natural substance on earth and rate a 10 on the Mohs Hardness Scale. Diamond is also known as April's birthstone. They are thought to be first recognized and mined in India many centuries ago.

Four characteristics, known informally as the "Four Cs", are now commonly used as the basic descriptors of diamonds: Carat, Clarity, Color and Cut.

This system was developed by GIA (Gemological Institute of America), one of the major gemological associations internationally recognized to evaluate diamond characteristics.

The carat weight measures the mass of a diamond and the clarity is a measure of internal defects of a diamond called inclusions. GIA’s D-to-Z diamond color-grading system measures the degree of colorlessness: the finest quality as per color grading is totally colorless, which is graded as D color diamond across the globe, meaning it is absolutely free from any color. Last, the cut of a diamond describes the quality of workmanship and the angles to which a diamond is cut.

Moonstone

A ghostly sheen moves under the surface of this feldspar, like moonlight glowing in water. Moonstone’s delicate beauty and its long-established heritage make it perhaps the most familiar gem-quality member of the feldspar group. Feldspars are the most widespread minerals in the earth’s crust, as well as some of the most diverse. You can pick up a rock anywhere in the world, and you’ll probably find that it contains a mineral or two from the feldspar group. Moonstone is a variety of the feldspar-group mineral orthoclase. During formation, orthoclase and albite separate into alternating layers. When light falls between these thin layers it is scattered producing the phenomenon called adularescence. Adularescence is the light that appears to billow across a gem. Other feldspar minerals can also show adularescence including labradorite and sanidine.
