How to Choose a Clasp?
Choosing a clasp for your pearl strand- it sounds like such a simple task. Or is it??? Did you know that there are separate clasps depending on how many strands of pearls you have? And they have special clasps to prevent your clasps from flipping over. How to choose? Pearl & Clasp is happy to help out!
The first thing you need to know is that clasps differ according to how many strands of pearls you have.
Single Strand Clasps
If you have a single strand of pearls then your clasp needs to be appropriate for a single strand of pearls so it does not flip over. It is very common for single strand clasps to flip over and there are several options that you have to help prevent flipping.
Purchase a clasp that is the similar in size to your pearls to prevent flipping. The larger the clasp is in comparison to the pearls, the more chance that it will flip over.
You can have the rings of the clasp made to be slightly off-center. This will not be noticeable to the wearer but it will help prevent flipping.
Purchase a double-sided clasp. A ball clasp such as a diamond ball clasp can serve the purpose of being both beautiful and resolving the problem of flipping.
if you found a clasp that you love but it is single sided, we can custom design most clasps to be double-sided to ensure that you receive the clasp you love and it will not flip.
