I am stumped. I am introducing a line of jewelry to be offered in
18K & Sterling Silver. It is for specialty boutiques, and designer
jewelry shops. However, the findings i have found in gold are only
14K. Is it okay to use a 14K earwire, or lobster claw on a 18K
piece? My chains will be 18K, to go with the 18K pendants i am doing
- but the closures and earring hoops is what i am having trouble
finding in 18k.
What are the rules here?
