Necklaces from New Orleans

New Orleans Necklace

When I visit New Orleans, I always stay in the French Quarter because of its rich history, beauty, and culture.  On one particular visit, I was strolling down Royal Street near Canal Street and I came upon this jewelry store.  The pieces were exquisite.  They were all handmade in the store by Italian artisans.  I bought several pieces, but the two necklaces that I’m showing here truly took my breath away.  The intricate detail in each necklace make a statement and spark a conversation wherever I go.  The sad part?  When I visited New Orleans again sometime later, the store was no longer there, falling prey to hard times or just needing to leave New Orleans perhaps.

What I’m left with are these two stunning pieces from that wonderful trip to New Orleans with my husband.  I’m so excited to share them both with you!

  1. Gorgeous pieces! I love original, hand made jewelry. And the colour is to die for 🙂 Too bad the place closed, but you are left with great memories and pieces that are very sentimental to you.

  2. I have always wanted to go to Mardi Gras and now that I live in the South it is possible. I love handmade jewelry! I really like the second one, sort of reminds me of home, many of the piece you find there are similar, the stone is so beautiful.
