Zinfandel is a bold, deep flavored wine with berry flavors and peppery spice that pairs well with grilled meats and tomato-based sauces. It tends to have more tannins and appears almost inky, the color is so saturated. Although the flavor is strong, good zinfandel is not overpowering or harsh; rather, it warms the mouth and fills the nose with rich wine smell.

The necklace pairs featured here contain at least one piece that is zinfandel-like: bold and striking color and style that awaken the senses.

Brilliant Blue Skies may be one of the best ways to express what it's like to live in the Southwest: big bold saturated colors of bougainvilla and prickly pear under a huge blue sky. The Brilliant necklace is 20" and mixes lovely natural rhodochrosite and blue opal with an intensely dyed crazy lace agate, and it's paired with the intense blue of the 18" Blue Skies necklace showcasing Castle Dome mine turquoise from Arizona.

These two necklaces layer well; the chunky Rougher Stuff variscite necklace is just below the double pearl strands of the Understatement necklace. There's a similar mix of dark and light colors, but the different scale and pattern of the necklaces make a nice contrast.
