Joie de Vivre jewelry

As the name implies, this is a terrific accessory when one wants a little something to go with an outfit, sometimes just for the fun of wearing a little low maintenance jewelry. Garnet and iolite are both tough, colorful gemstones that have been revered through the ages. Together with sterling silver, they offer good color and shine, as well as exceptional comfort, thanks to the hand-knotted silk thread and oh-so-easy magnetic clasp. No struggling to put on or take off this bracelet! The 4mm sterling silver magnetic clasp is surprisingly strong and won't simply let go while wearing. This would be a good gift for anyone enjoying lower profile gemstone jewelry.

Cost: $41.00 USD

Length: bracelet - 8"


  • garnet gemstone beads
  • iolite gemstone beads
  • sterling silver beads
  • sterling silver magnetic clasp
  • silk thread

Care & cleaning: Silk thread may be frayed or severed through prolonged exposure to rough or sharp edges; store bracelet 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.

Normally the recommendation is to avoid young curious hands with hand-knotted silk thread jewelry items because sustained hard tugging can stretch the thread and distort spacing between knots. However, the magnetic clasp does protect the bracelet so the recommendation is simply to take care that a young person doesn't grab it and stretch it out with both hands. Not that one ever would. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

Given the style and scale, this bracelet is likely best with casual clothes; it could be awkward with the sleeves of blazers or tailored jackets.
