This pearl, sunstone, goldstone, and gold necklace-a  sautoir in French-continues a venerable tradition.  Centuries ago sautoirs incorporated royal insignia in celebrations.  Pearls were especially honored.  Coco Chanel modernized the look, while flappers relaxed the style.  

"Golden Light" is a sautoir with tassels.  Freshwater pearls are cloaked by sunstone, goldstone, and our gold spacers. "Golden Light" ends with tassels of cream-colored, button pearls topped by our gold, floral bead caps.

If you love scarves, sautoirs are a jewelry equivalent of scarves.  Sautoirs, like scarves, offer flexible styling options.  Photos 6 and 7 demonstrate traditional ways of wearing sautoirs.  

Gems in "Golden Light" contrast beautifully with primary colors (like denim, navy, black, dark gray) as well as pastels (white, cream, light peach).  I don't discourage shopping, but before buying new clothing, walk through your closet and lay "Golden Light" against your clothes.  I'm betting you will see your existing wardrobe come alive.  

Golden Light pairs beautifully with our Golden Light earrings.

Picture 8 illustrates a custom sautoir inspired by "Golden Light."  Make an appointment to begin a conversation about creating a piece just for you.
