Joie de Vivre jewelry

As a flower, a single red poppy signifies rememberance, but it is the subtle, commonplace beauty of spring violets, pansies and forget me nots that remind me with fondness of years gone by. Violets and pansies show more saturated color, but forget me nots have the charm of small, delicate shape and pretty clustering. Forget me nots are Newfoundland's flower of remembrance as well as the poppy. This necklace of deep purple amethyst gemstones is like the flowers in that the beauty is more common and subtle than with some gemstones, but charming in its simplicity. The beads are strung on hand-knotted silk thread for maximum softness and drape and secured with an easy hook & eye sterling silver clasp.

Cost: $143.00 USD

Length: necklace - 18"


  • faceted amethyst gemstone beads
  • Czech glass beads
  • sterling silver beads
  • silk thread

Care & cleaning: Silk thread may be frayed or severed through prolonged exposure to rough or sharp edges; store necklace flat when not in use to prevent stretching or fraying thread. Clean with warm soapy water and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on silver.

Hard, sustained pulling can stretch and distort silk thread so it's recommended to keep this necklace out of reach. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

This 18" necklace and pendant are versatile and can be worn with casual tops (crew necks, V-necks) and under blazers or collared shirts. The classic design and gorgeous gemstones means it works equally well for a night out or more formal occasion.
