JEWELRY TERMS:

SAPHIRET GLASS STONES

SAPHIRET GLASS: "Glass developed in the late 19th century in Bohemia, made by adding karat gold to sapphire blue glass. The gold adds a mocha glow to the underlying blue glass. Different proportions of gold were used; the more gold used produced more intense mocha color."

Two Styles of Chain
Top - Box-link Chain
Bottom - Fetter Chain

Note that box-link chain is different from book-link chain.  For box-link chain, all of the pieces are the same size and linked together so that the chain looks the same from all sides.  For book-link chain, the elements are separated and joined by large jump rings and folded over front-to-back to form the links.
