This 24-karat heavy yellow gold-plated sterling silver hook & eye clasp features a slightly flattened profile and a smooth, satin finish. Its simple design complements a variety of beaded or fabricated necklace and bracelet styles made with gold components. 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. Offer your customers both the beauty of 24-karat gold and the value of precious metal at a very affordable price. This piece is made of sterling silver and heavily plated with a 40-mil thick layer of pure 24-karat gold—a far more substantial layer than traditional plating.
