Roussillon Ridge Necklace
One of the most radiant places in southern France is, most notably, the city of Roussillon. Known for its ochre mine, the place where pigments of oranges, reds, yellows and deep browns are found, then harvested to transform into paints, this area is stimulating to the eye.
The city buildings are bright and full of warm colors that have been blended not just into paint, but also into each of its facades. In contrast, the doors and windows are painted bold colors of blues, greens and purples. There is no denying this city from afar. The colors of the facades and the warm glow make it truly recognizable.
This necklace captures the side of the ridge with perfect harmony contrasting the rough cliffs of ochre, with the softness of organic forms of flowers. All of these details are framed in a perfectly-imperfect, easy-to-wear pendant, that serves as a glimpse into the scenery like a picture window.
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.
The Roussillon Ridge pendant measures approximately 40mm wide, by 35mm tall and comes with an adjustable (up to 22") spiga chain. The chain fastens at the back with a lobster clasp for ease of wear. Some additional (non-adjustable) chain 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.
