Gatsby hosted glittering parties where "men and girls came and went like moths", strolling across gardens strung with lights, listening to a full orchestra and drinking champagne under the stars. It's a glorious image, but unfortunately, there's a sad footnote to this sparkling scene; as noted by an inebriated guest, the pages of the books in the library were uncut. That is, they were real books, which the guest did not expect, but they were there for the appearance of a library, not actually to be read. People like Tom and Daisy are real enough; their actions and possessions reflect who they are and not who they want people to think them to be, but their indifference to anyone but themselves make them careless too. Both in The Great Gatsby and his first novel This Side of Paradise, wealth and beauty come at a cost, and the cost is usually the chance for real happiness. Thankfully, the modest components of this smoky quartz necklace mean that one isn't required to make that choice: it has bold Art Deco style with the glow of pearl and sparkle of stone, perfect for channeling a glamorous flapper for an evening, at a nice price. This necklace pairs beautifully with the daisy bracelet, and both can be had for less than $200 USD. Cost: $143.00 USD
