This 14/20 yellow gold-filled lobster clasp features a teardrop shape with a smooth, bright finish and an open attach ring. Add a plain or fancy ring to the opposite side of the strand to complete the clasp. One of the most common clasp styles, the lobster clasp offers a streamlined look and good security for all types of strands. Named for its resemblance to the action of a lobster claw, this clasp features a hook shape with a spring-operated closure. Simply press the ring at the opposite end of the strand against the closure, pushing it open enough to let the ring pass onto the hook (or press the release lever to open the closure). The spring holds the clasp closed until the lever pulls it open to release the ring. Gold-filled clasps deliver karat gold at a more affordable cost than solid gold, allowing you to design with the touch of precious metal customers look for and to offer your designs at a price customers appreciate.
This clasp includes an open attach ring.
