Joie de Vivre jewelry

Although there are numerous sparkling wines, champagne is the bubbly that lightens our hearts during festivities and celebrations. But why restrict the joy of crisp, bubbly deliciousness to a handful of times a year? Brut (dry variety = less sugar) is marvelous with cheese and crackers, fish tacos, chicken salad - the list is endless. Good champagne has a nice balance - not cloyingly sweet, not sharply acidic - and it refreshes and clears the palette. With champagne, all things are possible!

The necklace pairs featured here contain at least one piece that is champagne-like: festive, sparkly and downright happy.

Morning Dew is a 13"-15" necklace made with Czech glass and sterling silver extension chain and lobster clasp. The first pairing shows it with The C & C 18" necklace, and the second pairing shows it with the Personal Light 16" necklace. Both pairings take advantage of the smooth opalescent quality of the glass complementing the bold colors and shapes of the stones in the accompanying necklace.
