Joie de Vivre jewelry

t i m e l e s s  

As a design, this is about as timeless as one could get for beaded jewelry. It features 8mm round beads interspaced with delicate vermeil spacers and tiny seed pearls, and the vermeil toggle allows an inch of length adjustment. Vermeil is 22kt or 24kt gold plating on a sterling silver base metal, and it tends to endure wear better than other gold-plated items. Most bamboo coral is dyed red, but occasionally one sees a deep, bold blue such as found in this necklace. If the round beads were lapis lazuli, the cost would easily be 3x-4x as much. Instead, one can achieve the classic style for many years of wear at a fraction of the price because a good bargain is timeless as well!

Cost: $80.00 USD

Length: necklace - 20"


  • dyed coral beads
  • freshwater seed pearls
  • vermeil daisy spacers
  • 14kt gold-fill beads
  • vermeil 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 metal.

Although coral is not a strong material, the beads and other components should be robust to toddler tugging, as long as the tugging doesn't include crushing or otherwise impacting the beads. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.
