Have you ever noticed how your grandma’s pearls don’t look as lustrous as they could? They may be in need of a cleaning and restringing. The silk cord stretches over time, allowing the pearls to move back and forth between the knots. Dirt then gets on the silk, becomes noticeable and gets the pearls.
To protect and enjoy your pearl necklaces and bracelets, they should be strung every few years. When pearls are cleaned and restrung, they can look like new!
We string all types of bead and pearl necklaces and bracelets. We string multi strands of beads and pearls, graduated pearl strands and beads with designs or patterns.
Knots are generally placed between each pearl to give beauty, definition and security, although pearls can be strung without knots or even occasional knots.
- Knotted Recommended for more valuable beads and pearl strands. If your pearls break, you’ll only lose one bead or pearl! Larger pearls usually look better with knots also.
- Occasional Knots For smaller beads or pearls, or less valuable items, or as a design element. When an occasional knotted strand breaks, you may lose up to several beads or pearls.
- No Knots Frequently chosen as a design element. Some strands, especially with a variation in beads, look best without knots!
Prices vary depending on the size of the pearls, length of strand, complexity of design, level of difficulty, quality of materials, locality and more.
