Like cabarnet sauvignon, pinot noir has an earthy flavor though more subdued so that other flavors are noticeable, like fruit flavors of cherry and strawberry or vanilla. Pinot noir is the palest red wine and light and easy on the tongue. It pairs well with a variety of foods, from salmon to creamy cheese dishes to chicken and pork. It is the grape of the Burgundy region and good pinot noir is among the most prized wines.

The necklace pairs featured here contain at least one piece that is pinot noir-like: lovely in color and feel with subtle style and fun.

This pairing shows carbon in two forms: the jet beads in Family Araucariaceae are a "soft" form (coal) and the diamond chips in Precious are a "hard" form. Handcrafted lampwork glass beads make a fine complement to the lustrous jet beads, and the contrast between smooth and rough of the two necklaces adds nice interest.
