Joie de Vivre jewelry

Years ago, the Swarovski crystal company created beautiful, high quality glass pearls, such as the stunning black pearls found in this 15" necklace and hoop earrings. Today, the selection is truly dazzling, and for those who like the look of black pearls but could do without the high price, this is a reasonable alternative: a great South Seas look that's relaxed on the wallet. Plus, the necklace can be doubled and worn as a wrap bracelet.

Cost: $61.00 USD

Length: necklace - 15", earrings - 1 1/4"


  • Swarovski glass pearls
  • Bali silver beads
  • sterling silver beads
  • sterling silver ear hoops
  • sterling silver S-hook 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 components are robust to toddler tugs and pulls, but the ear hoops are thin sterling silver wire that will easily distort so it's recommended to keep these out of reach of young hands. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

This 15" necklace rests higher on the neck so it requires a higher neckline to appear balanced, but it works well under blouses or dress shirts with somewhat open collars. The earrings are simple but make a sweet accent.
