What makes long necklaces so special
A long necklace adds that certain something to any outfit: as a long pearl necklace it is reminiscent of the glamour of the 1920s, with colourful precious stones it embodies naturalness and romance, and as a long necklace made of gold it looks elegant. But these necklaces have one thing in common: they are real eye-catchers. Long necklaces from COEUR DE LION are made of skin-friendly stainless steel and are refined with natural stones, pearls or crystals. Their extraordinary designs – from subtle to extravagant – make the hearts of their wearers beat just a little faster.
Set accents – with fascinating necklaces from COEUR DE LION
Each of our long necklaces bears a love of detail. The stainless-steel necklaces are handcrafted with great care and craftsmanship in our Stuttgart studio. This makes each piece unique.
We only use only carefully selected materials: high-quality and colourful natural stones, such as amethyst, sodalite, rose quartz, hematite and even real pearls. Lovers of extravagant and sparkling accessories will also find what they are looking for: for example, we work with dazzling crystals or stainless steel refined with gold. Beautiful necklaces with pendants complete our range. One of the highlights of our collection are our iconic GeoCUBE® necklaces: inspired by the Bauhaus art movement, our cube necklace fuses geometric shapes with unusual colour combinations and a wide variety of materials to create haute couture jewellery.
Thanks to innovative and environmentally friendly finishing processes, you will receive your favourite piece in the highest quality – which will accompany you for a lifetime with the right care.

Would you like to learn more about long necklaces for women? We answer the most important questions about combining it with other jewellery and choosing the right length here:
What are the different necklace lengths?
What exactly is a ‘long necklace’? There are no strict guidelines, but as a rough guide a length of at least 50 cm is assumed. A distinction is made between:
• Matinee length (approx. 50 to 60 cm): necklaces in this length accentuate a spectacular neckline as they reach approximately to the middle of the décolleté
• Opera length (approx. 60 to 90 cm): as the name suggests, this length is mostly worn for elegant occasions
• Rope length (90 cm and more): here the lowest point of the necklace is below the waist, making the necklace the central eye-catcher of any style
Tip: long necklaces can be used wonderfully for the layering look in combination with necklaces in different lengths. You can find more about this in our category multiwear necklaces.
Which necklace length is the right one?
That depends entirely on your choice of garment – or rather, on the neckline of your top or dress. While shorter necklaces go better with round and rectangular necklines, long chains are ideal in combination with polo necks or tops cut higher at the neck. U-boat necklines also look very elegant when mixed with a long necklace. The reason for this is that the horizontal look harmonises well with a vertical element. Long necklaces with pendants are highly recommended for both necklines. The so-called ‘layering’ of several necklaces of different lengths, on the other hand, is particularly beautiful with V-necks, as it imitates the natural fall of the necklaces and shows them off perfectly. Styling tip: if you go for a long necklace, it is best to combine it with long earrings. Here, too, there is a wonderful selection in the COEUR DE LION online shop.
How long should a necklace be?
When choosing the length of a necklace, you should not only consider the style of your garment, but also take into account your height and the length of your upper body. For shorter women, an extra-long necklace may look unflattering. You should also be aware of which area you would like to emphasise. The lowest point of the necklace is usually the place that gets the most attention – such as the neck for a choker, the décolleté for a shorter necklace or the chest area or waist for a long necklace. By trying out different variations, you will quickly get a feeling for the right length of your necklace. We will also be happy to advise you.
What other necklaces for women does COEUR DE LION offer?
Of course, you can also find necklaces in shorter lengths in the COEUR DE LION online shop: in addition to gemstone necklaces or crystal necklaces, you can also choose from other types of jewellery such as sensual earrings, fascinating bracelets or beautiful rings.
