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.

The extraordinary green color of the chrysoprase gemstones in the Along the Avenue is natural and one of the great attractions of the stone. The Pearl Necklace is exactly as the name implies, but this in no way diminishes the beauty and versatility of a mid-length pearl necklace strung with handknotted silk. Together the necklaces add a bit more interest than alone and provide a nice accent.
