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.

Although most sapphire is blue, the mineral corundrum (also known as sapphire) can take a variety of hues, as seen in the Joyful 16"-20" necklace which flows from pale white to light yellow to blues and ruby reds and back again. It is paired with a pale emerald strand, the 18" Transpiration necklace, which has a cluster of sapphire rondelles as a center focal point.

The 17" Reef necklace of rough watermelon tourmaline nuggets pairs seamlessly with the 21" Shallows blue-green kyanite long chip necklace. Watermelon tourmaline refers to the tourmaline stones with a pink center and ringed with green, and these vibrant colors are well-framed by the sea-green kyanite stones.
