I'd like the costume version of this

I'm generally not too excited about bracelets but this piece caught my eye. Wow! Now I 'm thinking that a faux pearl bracelet with a little rhinestone clasp could be a super versatile and extremely pretty addition to my jewelry box. Oh! - and I just learned that when several strands of pearls are twisted together it's called a torsade. What a great word.

A torsade is officially going on my birthday list :)

Well, in French, a twist is 'torsion' and a thing that's twisted is called 'tordu' so I think a 'torsade' is a rather nicer word to describe a twisted rope of pearls!
