Blue crabs are iconic to the beautiful Chesapeake Bay. Named for their blue claws, these creatures are vital to the bay ecosystem. Crabs shed their skins in order to grow, and therefore they can be a symbol of the cycles of life and rebirth. 

Rose gold is very trendy and fun with its pinkish hues. In fact, it is a blend of pure 24 karat yellow gold, copper, and silver. The depth of color in rose gold comes from the ratio of yellow gold to copper. This is what gives rose gold its classic rosy hue. Rose gold was first used in Russia in the 1800s in Faberge eggs. Later, it became popular in the U.S. in the 1920s.

What is vermeil? Gold vermeil (pronounced ver-may) is a thick layer of gold which is electroplated over a sterling silver base. This binds the gold and silver together, making vermeil much less likely to fade, tarnish, or wear down. In comparison, gold plating is a thinner layer of gold over a lower-end metal like brass or copper.

What is a satin finish? A satin finish is in between a brushed and a glossy finish. A brushed finish is more rustic looking and you will see and feel a textured finish. A glossy finish is very shiny and smooth. You will be able to see your reflection when looking directly at this finish. A satin finish, like glossy, is also smooth to the touch but it doesn't have the high shine, rather has a matte finish. This finish beautifully accents our Satin Shell Rose Gold Maryland Crab Necklace.
