The pendant necklace and earrings are made of solid 14k gold and stamped "14K." Purchasing these coordinating items as a set offers a significant discount over purchasing them separately, making this an excellent value. These trendy pieces look great paired together for a more minimalist, put-together look, or by themselves for a look of simple elegance.
The circles on the necklace measure 5mm (0.2 in), the length of the dangling chain is 2 inches, and the necklace weighs 2.4g. The chain is 1mm thick. The dangling part of the necklace moves freely along the chain, and the length of the chain itself is 17 inches. The earrings measure 4mm (0.16 in) x 4mm (0.16 in) and weigh 0.6g.
Choosing Chain Length
Unsure what length chain to buy? 18" is the standard length and will look great on most people. 13" length is recommended only for small children. The 15" length is great for small children as well, but it can also be worn as a choker on an average size adult. The 16" length will fall just above the collarbone on an average sized adult woman, while the 18" chain will fall just below it. For best results, we do recommend using a tape measure to check neck size before placing your order.
Pure gold (24 karat) is a very soft metal. In order to make it into durable jewelry you can wear everyday, it is mixed with other metals to add strength. The most popular alloy of gold is 14K gold, which is 58.5% pure gold and 41.5% other metals like silver and copper. Adding other metals to gold also allows us to make beautiful gold variations like white and rose gold.
Gold Jewelry Care
To clean your gold jewelry, soak it in a bowl of mild liquid detergent and lukewarm water. Then rinse with water and dry with a soft cloth. Be careful not to bend any prongs while cleaning, as this could loosen stones from their settings. We recommend storing your gold jewelry individually wrapped in soft cloth to protect it from being scratched.
