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!

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

The pale green emerald found in the Transpiration necklace is unusual, and it makes the necklace a striking companion for a variety of pieces, including the Ornament pink tourmaline pendant necklace. Both necklaces feature jewel-bright colors of celebration and joy, and together they create a well-balanced exclaimation.

The faceted morganite gemstone strand from the Sweet Beryls set is pale pink in color like rose quartz but has greater hardness and clarity. (Morganite is a beryl like aquamarine and emerald.) The crystalline quality of tourmaline is evident in Tourmaline No. 10 Le Guin featuring raw pale green tourmaline top-drilled gemstones. Together the pastel colors pack a powerful punch of color and shine.
