Overlooking the Luberon Valley from the Château a patchwork quilt blankets the lush countryside, bursting with colors only nature can produce. The olive farm squares gracefully reveal familiar colors of dusty hunter green, gently accented by brilliant spring green vineyards, beige hay fields and pink cherry orchards.
During lavender season, just once a year, the patchwork squares of lavender go from green to the most lovely shade of violet-purple, in what seems like an overnight transformation. It is glorious! Driving down the highway, the newly blooming lavender releases its sweet aroma, drifting in and out, as the delicate winds blow through the village. Little bees are thrilled to do their job, as they happily pop from one delicate bloom to another. All is calm and peaceful.
Similar to its inspiration, each of our Lavande pieces are crafted by hand, making each bloom unique and one-of-a-kind. Choose your size (Lavande or Petit Lavande), then pair this sweet necklace with our coordinating Lavande Studs for a complete look.
Stroll through Kristen Baird® Jewelry’s newest jewelry-design collection, influenced by her whimsical, summer days spent in LaCoste, France. Gather vibrant flowers from a weekly, spirited provincial market. Duck behind colorful, medieval-arched doorways for an elusive embrace. Brush fingertips against ancient Roman castle walls—laced with fragile blooms, endless vines and romantic peepholes revealing the bold, organic palette of the valley below. Experience low-hanging branches bursting with deep-pink cherry blossoms, a patchwork quilt of bright emerald olive orchards and brilliant lavender fields awoken by buzzing bees in a sophisticated collection that bares every sensation imaginable—the Bonjour Belle Collection.

Depending on your style preference, the 1.5 mm fixed, sterling silver rolo chain is available in your choice of 16”, 18” or 20” lengths. The chain fastens with a lobster clasp in the back, for ease of wear. Additional chain lengths and gemstone options may be available upon request.
At Kristen Baird® Jewelry, we use partially to fully recycled sterling silver. The 18K gold used is certified 100% recycled and the gemstones we use are carefully selected in line with our commitment to social responsibility. Each piece is precisely handcrafted in our Savannah, GA studio, using a metalsmithing process called reticulation. As proof of authenticity, each piece is stamped with the .925 quality mark and whenever possible, is signed/marked with the Kristen Baird® maker’s mark, prior to delivery.
Due to the natural characteristics of handcrafted designs, each piece may contain slight variances from the photos shown. These variances allow uniqueness in every creation, but never take away from the quality of work or the complexity of design.
