            I was surprised that the colors weren't as vibrant as pictured online. I will return it. Well made. more autumnal than jewel tones.

                          The necklace is stunning and well made. It fits my neck perfectly but could be a little longer. The clamp is one of a kind; my concern is what happens if I break the loop. I'm very careful putting on and taking off. The colors are magnificent and I had many compliments when worn. The set can be worn at work, evening, and too unique to wear casually.

                          Guatemala is home to more than 20 distinct Maya ethnic groups, including the Tz‘utujil, who live in the highlands. In the early 20th century, Tz‘utujil artists began painting bird’s-eye views of markets and festivals in a brightly colored folk art style. The glass beads in these earrings are typical colors in Tz‘utujil painting and in women’s embroidered traditional dress.

                          Jasper, a form of chalcedony, has been used since ancient times for everything from arrow tips to official carved seals to snuff bottles that were highly collectible in 19th- and early-20th-century China. This triple strand of green, reddish, and brown jasper beads is interrupted throughout by pearls, and is inspired by the beaded necklaces that were popular in the Mandarin court of the late 17th century.

                          The nighttime bazaar in the Thai city of Chiang Mai is a must-go destination for anyone who wants to experience the creative energy of this northern city. Invigorated by the activity, many artists and jewelers keep studios in the surrounding neighborhood. Three lookalike sisters—a trio regularly mistaken for triplets—keep a studio nearby, and that is where they dreamed up this stylish beaded necklace that can also worn as a multi-strand bracelet. Choose turquoise or translucent rose quartz beads.

                          When drought threatened the livelihood of Kenya's Maasai in the late 1990s, beadwork, which part of their cultural heritage, became key to helping them maintain an independent lifestyle. Using their beading skills, Maasai women use the abundant grasses of the Rift Valley, paired with Czech glass and acacia wood beads, to create these lightweight and ecologically conscious necklaces.

                          The Tuscan city of Arezzo is one of Europe's largest gold centers. Family-run jewelry studios have flourished for decades as tools and techniques pass down through the generations. Our striking necklace is made by a renowned Arezzo jeweler using faceted agate and 18-karat gold-plated beads. Colors range from cool Mediterranean blues to deep Tuscan reds. Pale, translucent pinks and mottled earth tones add depth. Each stone is hand-cut and polished to a high shine.

                          Roman emperors commissioned thousands of different designs and denominations of coins and people from Britain to Spain to Syria still turn up Roman coins while plowing their fields and digging in their gardens. For collectors, there's nothing more satisfying than pinpointing when an ancient bronze coin was first minted. The reproduction coins in our multistrand necklace depict an emperor on horseback under the words OPTIMO PRINCIPI, Latin for "highest prince." Several emperors used this title, but it's most often found on coins minted by the first-century emperor Trajan.

                          Ottoman sultans called Istanbul’s magnificent Topkapi Palace home for nearly 400 years. It functioned as a small city, with courtyards, living quarters, and mosques to serve a population of up to 4,000. Ottoman wealth was on full display in the Imperial Treasury, which is now a part of the vast palace that is open to the public. The jewel-covered swords, mirrors, and armor in the treasury are the inspiration for this faceted green onyx pendant on a chain of gold vermeil and pyrite beads.

Artisans and food sellers cover several city blocks, and many artisans keep studios nearby. One such studio is run by three young sisters, whose resemblance is so striking they’re often mistaken for triplets. There they hand-string cultured pearls and gold-tone brass beads to create this romantic triple-strand necklace.
