Joie de Vivre jewelry

Live thy Life / Young and old / Like yon oak / Bright in spring / Living gold. So begins Tennyson's poem "The Oak" about that mighty spirit, standing trunk and bough "naked strength." The sterling silver openwork charm in this 20" necklace hangs in front of a copper square pendant stamped with "living strength" as a tribute to these towering beings. The necklace is a twisted sterling silver herringbone style chain with a spring ring clasp. A good gift for a poetry lover or a parent, those veritable towers of strength!

Cost: $60.00 USD
