Fuchsia and Sage Green Cherry Blossom Necklace
- Nickel free
Made from gorgeous handmade glass beads, this floating memory design necklace is a unique piece of eye-catching jewelry. In lovely colors that evoke the spring time cherry blossoms in Washington, D.C., it is truly pretty by itself, or teamed with a pair of matching earrings.
Spring in Washington celebrates the cherry trees and their beautiful pink and white flowers that bloom in late March. Every year, Cherry Blossom Festival performers put on a colorful show right in front of the National Archives steps. The majority of the trees are located near the Tidal Basin, where they are most popularly viewed. The Japanese cherry trees were a gift from Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo City to the city of Washington on March 27, 1912. The National Archives holds many records related to the United States' relationship with Japan.
