About this Piece

Sterling Silver

Sterling is an alloy of silver containing at least 92.5% pure silver (925 parts of 1000 thus the 925 stamp), the remainder is made up of a mix of metals (most commonly copper) used to make the metal workable. Pure silver is generally considered too soft to work with, although you can find silver jewellery at 950 or 980, even the occasional 99.9% fine silver, which can be work-hardened to increase durability.

Cat's Eye

Cat's eye can be any one of several different stones that, when cut into a cabochon (a highly polished, convex dome) displays a luminous or silky band of light across the surface, reminiscent of a cat's eye. Chrysoberyl has the strongest and most distinct cat's eye effect of all gemstones - though several different gemstones types exhibit a cat's eye effect, only Chrysoberyl's cat's eye enjoys the privilege of having the name "Cat's Eye" without any prefix.
