Do you offer wholesale pricing to other jewelers?
Sorry, we only work directly with clients and don’t offer wholesale pricing on pearl stringing; however, large orders may qualify for a volume discount.
Do you have a shop I can visit when it’s convenient for me?
Yes! We are a retail artisan jewelry store and keep regular hours. Drop off and pick up is welcome. We can also accommodate shipping. Check our home page for hours and how to make a personal appointment directly with Lisa.
Can you work with faux pearls?
Absolutely. We can do wonders with Swarovski and glass “pearls” Bring them by for Lisa to evaluate at no charge.
Do you use one of those knotting machines/tools?
Lisa knots and strings every single strand by hand with a pair of tweezers. The old fashioned method takes time, but ensures total control over the knots, the luxurious looking result and the long-lasting structure for your pearl strands.
My necklace always seems to break at the clasp Is that a “weak spot”?
It’s true, the weakest point of any bracelet or necklace is the point where the clasp attaches to the strand. To mitigate breakage, Lisa spends extra time covering the stringing material with the tiniest coiled gold or silver wire. This prevents the the metal clasp from rubbing against the stringing material, making your necklace or bracelet MUCH more durable.
I lost the clasp on my pearls! Can you replace it?
Definitely! We have a small selection of clasps in stock in both sterling silver and gold filled. We can also order in 14k or 18k yellow or white gold. We also have some very strong magnetic clasps perfect if you or your gift recipient has difficulty opening and closing clasps. The traditional type of clasp used for pearls is a "fish" shaped safety clasp, because even if it becomes unfastened the hook usually still catches on the clasp for added safety, but many clasp types can be used. We can quickly quote you a price on the clasp of your choice.
How long does a re-stringing take?
Turnaround time is typically about 1-2 weeks and may be longer during holiday season and peak wedding season. We can accommodate some rush jobs, so definitely let us know right away about your timing needs.
One of my pearls is a bit flawed. Can my strand be shortened?
Shortening offers the opportunity to either get rid of a few flawed pearls or to remove some to use to make drop earrings or a pendant. Most of our clients hope we can simply remove a few pearls, rather than a full-restringing. To ensure the integrity of the strand, this is rarely possible. In 95% of cases, the entire piece must be re-strung because the ends must be woven back through the 5-7 pearls or beads.
My grandmother’s pearls are too short. Can you make them longer?
Lengthening with just the existing pearls can sometimes be done if pearls were never knotted - adding knots will increase the length by about an inch or slightly more. One quick alternative is to lengthen the strand with an extender chain. We can also increase length to your pearl strand by adding some smaller pearls or gemstones near the claspTalk to us about your options and preferences.
