Long necklaces

The long necklaces are chains or necklaces that can be worn in single, double or triple row. They measure between 60 cm and 90 cm and arrive at the birth of the chest. Some can even measure more than a meter! We call them sautoir in French. This length is ideal for the pendants of beautiful size, a little heavy, and highlight them. Did you know that the necklace is also called “opera necklace”?

    Gemological point: Coral is a gem of organic origin. Only the branched calcareous trunks of certain corals are used in jewellery. Its colour is due to organic pigments close to carotene: varying from blood red to white, passing by the pink “angel skin”. Currently, most coral species are protected under CITES, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora.
