Long strings of pearls are as fashionable in 2016 as they were in the 1920’s with fashion houses and celebrities experimenting with new ways to use both Opera Length and Rope Length Pearl Necklaces to create both stylish and dramatic looks.

At Scintilla Fine Jewellery we are big fans of these long strings, we’ve even been known to use our long strings to create gorgeous multi strand bracelets, and our Pearl Jewellery Online store features both classic pearl styles and unique modern designs.

Long Pearl Necklaces can actually represent great value, as being longer and able to slip over the head the expense of a gold or silver clasp is saved.
