Chardonnay is the most widely known white wine variety, and most people have encountered it in the
heavily oaked New World style. This may be to one's liking or not; a number of chardonnays have appeared
"naked" in the unoaked Old World style. Oak aside, good chardonnay is smooth and almost buttery
in the way it coats the mouth. If pinot grigio is the bright early morning sun, then chardonnay is
the golden mellow sun of late afternoon.
Five necklace pairs featured here contain at least one piece that is chardonnay-like: warm, mellow
colors with definitive, classic style.

Together the necklaces add a bit more interest than alone and provide a nice accent.
