Whether you just want to have your old pearl necklace or bracelet cleaned and restrung, or you want us to create something a little different, our experts are up to the task. We can work on all kinds of pearl restringing projects, and we'll return your jewelry to you in like-new condition every time.
The last thing you want is for your pearl necklace or bracelet to break, in which case you would run the risk of losing pearls. That's why it's a good idea to have your pieces restrung from time to time. This process is quick and straightforward for our skilled craftsmen, although we do always take care to account for the particulars of each piece.
• The first thing we do on any pearl restringing project is to take all of the pearls off the old string and clean them thoroughly.
• Next, we run the new string through the piece, taking care to place a knot between each pearl. This is especially important because it helps prevent the loss of multiple pearls if the string does break for some reason.
• Finally, we'll reconnect the old clasp or put on a new one, depending on your preference.
While we can always restring the pearls in your piece exactly as they were before, we can also create a new design for you if you're in the mood to mix things up a bit. Our skilled artisans bring many years of experience to the table, and they can add some custom metalwork designs or adjust the placement of the pearls to reflect a pattern of your choice.
Even if you're not exactly sure what you'd like your finished piece to look like, our professionals will work with you to develop a design that matches your style. We have many years of experience designing and crafting custom jewelry, and that means we can produce beautiful pieces that perfectly reflect your individual style.
In addition to restringing your pearls, we can also repair or replace clasps that have been damaged or that are simply beginning to wear out. Just as the integrity of the string holding your pearls is important, so is that of the clasp keeping your jewelry in place.
If you have a simple clasp, we'll have no trouble replacing it. And if you instead have a specialty clasp with gemstones or other custom design work, we'll repair the functional parts without damaging or altering the design of the piece.
Txai H. - Bellevue, WA - April 2016 - YelpHonestly I couldn't be happier with what these guys did for my rings. Originally I just needed my engagement ring re-plated and looked (what felt like everywhere) for a jeweler that would do the black rhodium plating but my ring seemed to be too unusual for most of Bellevue's big jewelers. Then I found Joseph's (just down the street from my condo, as well) and that was a huge relief. It wasn't until a few days after I had my husband drop the ring off that I figured it was probably time for me to get the engagement ring and my wedding band soldered together. I called on Saturday and Joseph told me that my ring had just been prepped to be re-plated and if I wanted to bring in the wedding band it would be a good time to get them done at once. I was there around 10:45 am to drop off the band and back around 5:30 pm the same day to pick up the finished product. I couldn't stop staring at the rings on my way home and my husband even was astonished with how gorgeous they both looked- he doesn't want to take the rings anywhere else ever again. The rhodium plating stood out even more beautifully than the original ring. I want to thank Joseph Jewelry from the bottom of our hearts for making it such a smooth, quick and easy process and returning me with rings seamlessly soldered and even more beautiful than before.
