Joie de Vivre jewelry

s u n s e t  

Often jewelry suppliers will offer strands containing more than one kind of gemstone, such as the faceted rondelles in this dusk-inspired 16"-18" necklace. The deep orange-red of carnelian contrasts nicely with the twilight blue of iolite along with neutral hues of hessonite garnet and labradorite. The beads are strung on silk thread and hand-knotted in clusters, giving the necklace nice drape. A sterling silver lobster clasp and chain extension adjust the length between convienent lengths of 16" and 18", and this can be particularly helpful when wearing the necklace as a double-wrap bracelet. The simplicity of style and adjustable length also make this a good necklace to pair with others - see it in the tasting menu!

Cost: $58.00 USD

Length: necklace - 16"-18"


  • faceted carnelian rondelles
  • faceted iolite rondelles
  • faceted labradorite rondelles
  • faceted hessonite garnet rondelles
  • sterling silver beads
  • sterling silver chain and lobster clasp
  • silk thread

Care & cleaning: Silk thread may be frayed or severed through prolonged exposure to rough or sharp edges; store necklace flat when not in use to prevent stretching or fraying thread 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 silk thread is strong, but it can be stretched with hard tugging which could distort the spacing between silk knots so it's recommended to keep this out of reach of young hands. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.
