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!
Those necklaces are so pretty! Such statement pieces!
Thank you!! xo
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.
That’s very true! Thanks for the nice comment! xo
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.
Thanks so much for your comment! I really appreciate it! xo
Both pieces are nice, but love the first one more.
Thanks so much! xo
They are gorgeous Beth, I love the colour of them both. I’m glad to hear you had a wonderful time, it’s always nice when you find a good buy on a trip away.
Thanks Lennae! I did have a wonderful time and bought some beautiful jewelry on the trip! xo
These are gorgeous! I love the colors. I imagine New Orleans has many fabulous things. I’ve never been yet.
New Orleans has so many beautiful things to look at and buy! I’m so glad that I found this store before it closed! I’m glad that you enjoyed the post! xo
These necklaces are beautiful. The second one is definitely my favorite of the two!
Thanks so much!! xo
I’m so much into statement jewellery these days and those two that you have here are GORGEOUS.

Oh how beautiful are these pieces! I love multi-strand necklaces – they are so versatile and stylish.
Thanks Janine! I appreciate your comments! xo
Your 2 necklaces are beautiful! I’m sorry to hear that the store isn’t there any more 🙁
Thank you!! xo
The color is great on both of them. I love New Orleans. The fashion, the food the city.
I completely agree. New Orleans is one of the most unique cities that I’ve ever visited. xo
Wow! I guess New Orleans has more to offer than just beignets. These are beautiful!
New Orleans has a lot of artists who create all kinds of things like paintings and sculptures. It’s quite a unique city! xo
Really beautiful designs. I love the colours of the stones.
Thanks Jemma! I love wearing turquoise. It seems to go with a lot of my wardrobe at the moment. I’m glad that you liked them! Thanks so much for your comment! xo
