• Pearl Repair & Restringing

  • At David's Fine Jewelry your pearls and beads are professionally strung. When done correctly, look for the following:

    • The pearls or beads should lay nicely and not bunch together or twist.
    • Knots should be pushed snugly against both sides of every pearl.
    • Knots should be sized and shaped uniformly and sized properly for the drill holes.
    • The silk cord (at David's Fine Jewelry, we use only silk cord) should match the pearl's body color as closely as possibly.
    • The stand should be attached correctly and evenly to the end of the clasp.
    • The clasp should open and close properly for ease of operation and security.

    Potential or actual stinging problems would include:

    • Pearls or beads bunched together.
    • Knotted with gaps between pearls and knots.
    • Inconsistent size and shape of knots.
    • Elongated jump ring and damaged French wire; strand attached unevenly to clasp.
    • Bent safety catch on clasp; broken guard.
