This 14-karat yellow gold safety clasp features four open diamond shapes nested inside a diamond-shaped frame. The clasp is finished with the same design on both sides. The bright-white color and intricate design of the clasp look great when paired with pearl strands or other beaded strands in bracelet or necklace designs. Safety clasps (also called pearl clasps) feature two parts that connect in two different ways, providing a fail-safe that helps prevent loss of higher-value necklaces or strands and are ideal for pearl and gemstone strands. The interior part of the clasp is a slender hook with notches along the outer edge; the exterior part is hollow except for a locking bar. The interior part hooks over the locking bar and then slides inside the exterior part, the notches catching along the inner sides to hold the clasp securely closed. Even if the notches fail for any reason, the hook keeps the strand in place.
