This 14-karat white gold teardrop lobster clasp features a teardrop shape and a sizable closed, fixed ring, making it easy to attach to chains and bead strands—the ring can accommodate an 18-ga. jump ring or other connector. 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. This clasp is plated with rhodium to ensure a durable, tarnish-resistant finish.
