Common Restringing Questions
Our team has over thirty five years of experience restringing pearls, and they have restrung hundreds of pearls. Due to our wide range of experience restringing pearls, we strongly believe that we can accurately advise and assist you during the restringing process with choosing the right clasp, pearl length and style.
Whether its a simple restringing job or a more complex one, our restringing experts are able to restring any piece of pearl jewelry you have in mind. Our restringing experts can restring any pearl necklace or pearl bracelet with either your original clasp or a new clasp. Our restringing services also allow you to transform your old pearl bracelet or pearl necklace into a completely new piece of pearl jewelry. For example, a single strand pearl necklace can be re-strung into a double strand pearl bracelet.
When pearls are restrung, the are strung tightly so it can cause some kinking. Eventually it will stop once you start wearing them. If you want to hang them on a door knob for a week or two, it will get rid of the kinking.
For simple restringing jobs, the cost is only costs $2 per inch. For an 18 inch pearl necklace, it only costs $36. The price for a bracelet is $30 per strand. For more complex pearl pieces, prices may vary. For more information on our restringing services click here
When fixing any strand of pearls or replacing any clasp on a pearl stand, it is essential that you restring the entire strand, not just the area around the break. There are several reasons for this. First, tying a clasp on to an existing strand will create a weakness in the strand around the heaviest area, which will reduce the strength of the entire strand. Second, if there is a weakness detected in the strand in one place, it is highly likely that there are other places of weakness in the strand, even if they are not visible to the naked eye. Fixing the entire strand is the best (and only) way to ensure that your pearl jewelry will look its best for years to come.
At Pearl & Clasp, we strongly value our customers style preference, and have the expertise to guide you through the selection process. Not every clasp is appropriate for all pearls and we can guide you to choosing the clasp that will work best to fit your pearls.
A mystery pearl is a pearl clasp that is made of a pearl with a screw inside. A mystery pearl looks like a normal pearl strung onto a necklace but is like a clasp that opens and closes. A mystery pearl can be used as a clasp for a seamless look or you can add multiple mystery pearls to your pearl necklace or bracelet to allow for different length and styling options.
Yes we can ( for almost all pearls). Simply send in your pearls and we will have our pearl experts match our pearls to your piece of jewelry. Feel free to choose your ideal strand length
Most of the single sided clasps found on our site can be custom ordered to be double sided. The double sided clasp provides you with a design on each side, so you won’t ever have to worry about your clasp flipping over. To find out more about customizing to a double sided clasp, contact our customer service.
A double sided clasp is a clasp that has a design on each side. Some of these clasps have the same design on both sides and some have different designs to give you more versatility. These clasps provide a unique design and give you more versatility while styling your pearl necklace or pearl bracelet.
It is best to use a double sided clasp for a single strand pearl necklace or bracelet. Many times, a clasp will flip over and if you have a double sided piece, you don’t need to worry if the clasp is on the right side or not.
What if I want a double sided clasp but the one I picked is single sided?
