Pearl Necklaces and Summer Fashions

As the winter recedes and the weather turns sunny our thoughts are turning to our Pearl Necklaces and Summer Fashions. This summer more than any recent summers women are going to want to dress up and break out of the Covid blues with some beautiful clothes and jewellery. It would be wrong to think of Pearl Jewellery as only an accessory for a formal setting as current fashions are much more irreverent, and we stock both formal and casual Pearl Jewellery in modern designs.

So what are our recommendations for summery Pearl Necklaces that can be worn with beachwear or casual summer outfits? A perennial summer favourite is a Floating Illusion Pearl Necklace, and we see strong demand each Spring as women prepare their summer wardrobes and jewellery accessories for the coming season. A Pearl Illusion Necklace features small pearls spaced along a nylon thread, giving the illusion of floating unsupported when viewed, these multi-strand necklaces are very affordable and are a stylish item of jewellery that works well with a summer dress. We have a stunning 11 Strand Pearl Illusion Necklace on offer for just £34.95.

A Single Pearl Necklace is another great option for the Summer of 2021, a large round white pearl on a sterling silver necklace chain has a simple understated elegance, the perfect complimentary item for your summer wardrobe. We have two stylish Single Pearl Necklaces on offer for just £29.95.

Pearl Station Necklace

Pearl Station Necklaces look great all year round, but in our view they are perfectly suited to accessorize casual summer fashions. A Station Necklace features pearls spaced, or ‘stationed’, along a thin sterling silver chain. We love this type of necklace, which are also known as Tin Cup Necklaces, as the style was popularised in the US after Rene Russo wore this style of necklace in the movie Tin Cup. We stock several styles of Pearl Station Necklace: Oval Pearls in White, Pink, Lavender or Black. Coin Pearls in White or Pastel Pink. Baroque Pearls in White, in a longer length of 20” or 22” with a stunning backdrop (very popular for Weddings). Priced from £34.95 to 39.95 all on Sterling Silver these are a very affordable item of stylish summer jewellery.

Pearl Necklaces – How to Shop Online

Pearl Necklaces – How To Shop Online

The number of people choosing to shop online is increasing rapidly, and the latest IMRG Sales Index shows 16.3% growth year on year, with fashion accessories up a massive 48%

Whether you are seasoned online shopping pro, or just dipping your toe in the water, we will try in this blog post to provide you with some helpful tips to help you choose the perfect pearl necklace and examples of great value beautiful necklaces, that can be purchased safely in the UK with secure consumer protection and return guarantees.

One of the first things to decide upon is the correct length of necklace, we are not all the same size and shape, and your choice of necklace needs to reflect this.

Pearl Necklaces

The picture above gives a rough indication of where a necklace might fall on an ‘average’ person, but of course we are not all average, if you’ve a larger bust or necksize you will need to increase the length in inches to achieve a similar drop.

One of the next questions to consider is size of pearl, and our rough guidelines are as follows:

  • Choker Length (16″ and under) – we recommend small & medium sized pearls  5-7mm
  • Princess Length (17-19″) – most sizes of pearl will look great
  • Matinee Length (20-26″) – we would recommend 6mm and upwards
  • Opera Length (26-36″) – we would recommend a minimum of 6mm pearls, but also caution in choosing pearls larger than 10mm as the weight of pearls vs silk string strength may be too great (note we would make Coin Pearls an exception to this rule as they are flatter and hence lighter).
  • Rope Length (36″+) – choose medium sized pearls

Long strings are generally defined in two terms:

  • Opera Length – typically 28″ to 36′ and falling just below the bust line. A great evening wear accessory, but also a fashionable item for less formal occasions when it can be worn either double looped, or twisted and joined with a pearl shortener.

  • Rope Length – over 40″ and falling around the waistline. A stylish statement piece that can be worn twisted, using a pearl shortener, double looped or triple looped, or even knotted.

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.
