This 14-karat vermeil hook & eye clasp provides the look of yellow gold at an economical price and features a flattened figure-eight design; ideal for necklace and bracelet designs. A hook & eye clasp is a two-part clasp that closes by simply sliding the hook through the eye. This clasp tends to be larger than other clasp types and is ideal for larger designs, bead strands or bib-style necklaces; it relies on the necklace having enough weight to keep the clasp secure. Made of precious metal but more affordable than solid gold, vermeil items offer the thickest layer of gold available—2.5 microns, which is 5 times the thickness of typical gold plating.
• Overall length indicates the length added to your strand by the clasp.
