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.
Stephen P. - Bristow, VA - July 2016 - YelpWhere to begin. I've never had a piece of jewelry created before and I don't have a $10,000 budget but I found the site for Joseph Jewelry and the reviews and after looking at some local (snobby and expensive) options I decided to try with Joseph Jewelry. I designed the ring online and it was shipped to me as I live on the other side of the country. The process is extremely easy to start. I literally wrote what I wanted and they got right back to me. Mine was not hand-drawn or anything, I took a lot of pieces from their vast array of engagement rings. I had my own ideas as well, some of them worked others did not. The people I worked with were always supportive and genuinely interested in my piece and tried to fit everything I wanted in. They never made any disparaging remarks if something I wanted wasn't possible. When I had a question about the size of the ring they sent me a wax model that helped me understand the size and scope of the ring. This is incredibly helpful and suggest you request it once you have a basic design down. The ring is beautiful, I got a really great price on it, and the fact that it is one of a kind is really special to both me and my fiancé. The only snag I ran into was that I had some trouble having someone sign for the package once it arrived. For some reason they wouldn't give me the tracking number for the package which I found odd but they contacted the shipper directly for me and in the end I actually received the ring a day early. Highly suggested if you are looking for a well priced, unique piece for someone very special. Everyone who saw it fell in love with it.
