This dragonfly pendant necklace is made of solid 14k gold (not plated or filled) and stamped "14K " (585). The 14 karat gold necklace is a thin, delicate and feminine rope chain with a spring ring clasp. This animal necklace is simply elegant, coordinating with every outfit and suitable for every occasion.
The weight of the pendant is 0.4g, the 18" necklace weighs 1.0g, the length including the bale is 21mm (0.83 in), the dragonfly measures 12mm (0.47 in) x 16mm (0.63 in), the chain is 0.85mm thick and either 13, 15, 16, 18, 20, or 22 inches long. To purchase the pendant by itself (without the chain), choose the "0.0" length.
Choosing Chain Length
Unsure what length chain to buy? 18" is the standard length and will look great on most people. 13" length to 15" length can 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.
Beautiful necklace. So sparkly and dainty! Just wish that the charm holder was smaller, as it appears to be too large for the offed necklace and charm.
Delicate but smaller than it looked
