Pearl Restringing

Pearl stringing

There is no more elegant and classic a piece of jewelry than a pearl necklace. Since ancient times, the pearl has been a symbol of unblemished perfection. It is the oldest known gem, and for centuries it was considered the most valuable. A pearl necklace always makes a timeless statement, a favorite to be worn at weddings and other important life events. The Latin word for pearl literally means “unique”, attesting to the fact that no two pearls are identical. Pearl necklaces are passed down from mother to daughter for generations. From the traditional round white pearl to the black Tahitian pearl, to the wonderful and unique baroque and Keshi shapes, pearls are the epitome of refined taste.
Like other pieces of jewelry, pearl strands are subjected to wear and tear. Pearls are strung and knotted on special pearl thread or silk. This thread, over time, becomes discolored and stretched. The drilled edges of the pearls can also begin to wear and fray the knots, and eventually the thread will break. Additionally, because the both the pearls and the thread are porous, they absorb body oils, sweat and dirt which can harm the pearls. Not to worry, the professionals at Jewelry by Andrew can clean your pearls, restring your necklace and make everything as good as new.
The team at Jewelry by Andrew has restrung thousands of pearl necklaces over the past twenty years. If you have taken your pearls to another jewelry store, chances are that the re-stringing and hand knotting was done by JBA. We can also customize your pearls with a new clasp in gold or sterling silver, and we can both shorten and lengthen pearl necklaces and bracelets. So come to the best and let us take care of your precious strand of pearls or your pearl bracelet, for the best price in town.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!
“My mother had given me an amazing opera length necklace of 10-11mm pearls.  It was too long for me to wear, even doubled.  I went to see Bozena at Jewelry by Andrew, who suggested that I split the one necklace into 2 necklaces (one shorter and one longer) and a bracelet.  We picked simple clasps set with a small pearl on top, and one week later I had a whole new set of jewelry.  Everything looked amazing.  I highly recommend Jewelry by Andrew for their pearl work.”
“I have a very valuable pearl necklace that I wear for special occasions.  It was starting to look dingy and a little stretched out.  I called around to find out who did pearl restringing, and decided to contact Jewelry by Andrew.  They were very courteous and professional, and I felt very comfortable leaving my necklace with them.  Because I needed my necklace for an event that weekend, I asked if they could have it ready in 3 days.  It was done on time, and looked better than I had seen it look in 10 years.  I am extremely happy with the work they performed and I intend to shop them for a ring to match.”
“I had a collection of pearls and semi-precious beads that I wanted to turn into something.  Friends of mine had recommended Jewelry by Andrew because of custom work that they had had done.  I brought my collection in and in no time Bozena created an amazing necklace with a beautiful clasp.  It is one of a kind and I love it, and I get complements every time I wear it.  Do not hesitate to bring your pearl or bead projects to Jewelry by Andrew.  They are absolutely the best.”
