Joie de Vivre jewelry

Complementary colors are across from each other on a color wheel, such as red and green, blue and orange, and purple and yellow. The ruby necklace contains graduated gemstone rondelles from 2-3mm in diameter to 4-5mm, interspersed with sterling silver beads. The chrysoprase necklace contains 3-4mm gemstone rondelles whose natural green color gets a boost from an AB coating to enhance shine, and these are paired with clusters of high luster rice pearls. On its own, each necklace is a great addition to an outfit, but together they add punch. The high contrast between the red ruby and green chrysoprase works well because both gemstones show jewel-bright, saturated color.

Cost: $239.00 USD

Length: necklaces - 20"


  • faceted ruby gemstone rondelles
  • facteed & coated chrysoprase rondelles
  • freshwater pearls
  • sterling silver beads
  • sterling silver chain and lobster clasp
  • Soft touch light duty nylon coated stainless steel cord (10 lb. load test)

Care & cleaning: Beading cord may be kinked or broken through hard jerks or severed through prolonged exposure to rough or sharp edges; store necklace flat when not in use to prevent stretching or kinking cord. Also, the gemstones required a narrower diameter beading cord so extra care is recommended when it comes to avoiding sharp tugs, as this can damage the cord. Clean with warm soapy water and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on silver.

The thinner diameter beading cord means the necklaces are not robust to hard pulls and tugs so it's recommended to keep these out of reach. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.
