Joie de Vivre jewelry

The idea behind this necklace is a way to wear a multi-strand pearl necklace without it being too staid or too outlandish. A short, multi-strand necklace of small round pearls in natural hues is nice, but on the unadventurous side, but a necklace with large pearls or brightly colored pearls can quickly become garish. Using freshwater pearls dyed a dark blue-black steps away from the expected but maintains a more subtle scale, and mixing these with the bright sparkle of Swarovski crystal achieves a strong look that is neither boring nor overwhelming. The 16" length refers to the length of the top-most strand.

Cost: $51.00 USD

Length: necklace - 16"


  • dyed freshwater pearls
  • Swarovski crystal cube beads
  • sterling silver rings
  • sterling silver 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 pearls are 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.
