Joie de Vivre jewelry

Long necklaces such as these are often impractical because they can catch on nearby objects and usually interfere with any kind of badge lanyard. Also, the size of the beads is daunting; they simply take up surface area and it's hard to wear the necklace without feeling a bit like a kid playing dress up. However, I would say to give this 24" necklace of lovely smooth palmwood and assembled shell a chance. It is lightweight and flexible and it's like wearing the radiant calm of a well-lit parlor with shining wood and soft white curtains.

Cost: $58.00 USD

  • freshwater pearls
  • dyed freshwater pearls
  • sterling silver beads
  • sterling silver toggle clasp
  • Soft Flex moderate duty nylon coated stainless steel cord (30 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. Clean with warm soapy water and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on silver.

The beads and cord should withstand determined toddler tugs and pulls. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

This long 24" necklace works well with all necklines, but it can look awkward when paired with jackets and blazers depending on the cut and fit.
