Pearls in a Cup

When we were younger and browsing through our mothers' jewelry boxes, we all remember seeing that memorable piece that our mother cherished more than any other treasured family heirloom. For us, the most exciting of these jewelry pieces has always included pearls. Pearls are, and always will be, timeless wonders that are full of charm and beauty, fit for the individual who wears them.

At Long Jewelers, we are proud to be an authorized retailer of Steven Douglas, Charles Krypell, Mikimoto, and many other designers who are dedicated to creating pearl necklaces, earrings, and bracelets that are sure to stay beautiful for generations to come.
