Joie de Vivre jewelry

Brilliant blue and shimmering cloud white combine in this short 16" necklace of turquoise and rainbow moonstone. The turquoise nuggets are from the fabled Sleeping Beauty turquoise mine outside Globe, Arizona, and the smooth rondelles are Nacozari Mexican turquoise. Both mines are closed today, making these samples particularly special. Rainbow moonstone is a feldspar like labradorite that shows adularescence, that lovely flashing color that gleams along different viewing planes. Smaller rondelles transition to larger ovals and nuggets in the necklace, spaced with delicate glass seedbeads of the Japanese Miyuki company. Sterling silver lobster claw clasp.

Cost: $38.00 USD

Length: necklace - 16"


  • rainbow moonstone gemstone beads
  • Nacozari Mexican turquoise rondelles
  • Sleeping Beauty turquoise chips
  • Japanese Miyuki glass seedbeads
  • sterling silver components
  • sterling silver lobster claw clasp
  • Soft Flex nylon coated stainless steel cord

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

The materials and cord in this necklace are robust to most tugs and pulls, but care should be taken to prevent hard impacts which can damage the softer turquoise. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

This short 16" necklace works best with a high neckline like a boatneck or a lower neckline. For a layered look, pair it with a lower profile necklace like the Soft Pink necklace.
