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.
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.
After my mom passed away a few months ago, I inherited the diamond from her engagement ring. It is a beautiful old stone that has been in our family for generations. It is very sentimental, and I knew wanted to make a custom ring so I could wear it. My first attempt with a custom jeweler many years ago had been terrible, so I painstakingly researched custom jewelers and decided to call Joseph Jewelry (which conveniently, is only about 20 minutes from where I live). From my very first conversation with Andrea, I knew I was in great hands. I stopped by the store a few days after this initial conversation and I was able meet Andrea and show her images of the design I had in mind. (I'll just add that Andrea was able to get me a quote for the ring that day, which was very competitive. It took another jeweler almost two weeks to provide me with a quote for the same project.) Before I had even gotten home, I had a message from Bonnie, my amazing designer, saying she was looking forward to working with me on the ring. Within days, Bonnie had created a 3D proof. She patiently worked with me as I made little tweaks to get the design just the way I wanted. Following my approval of the proofs and before the ring was cast, I was able to see the ring in wax form (a step I absolutely loved). While Bonnie worked with me on the design, Andrea did a stellar job finding matching diamonds to compliment my stone. We went through a few different ideas with these diamonds (from size to color). At one point, Andrea and Bonnie had me come in to the store to look a few options. We set various sized/colored diamonds in my mold to see how they looked together, took them outside to see how looked in natural light... Bottom line, Andrea and Bonnie did everything they could to make sure this ring was absolutely perfect and exactly what I wanted. They knew it was a very special and important piece of jewelry they were helping me to create, and I'm sure they treat all of their customer's projects the same way. Once my ring was finished, I had the pleasure of working with Mike to ship the ring from Washington state to New Jersey (it had always been our plan to do this). I have to admit, I was nervous shipping my brand new diamond ring across the country, but the process was flawless. The ring shipped UPS 2-day, and I picked it up at the UPS Customer Center that Mike kindly helped me find. My experience with Joseph Jewelry was really quite exceptional! Their customer service is up there with the best I have ever experienced. And my new ring is everything I could have hoped for. I absolutely love it, and I know my mom would have, too. I have a few more custom jewelers projects I would like to do, and I can't wait to work with the team at Joseph Jewelry again in the near future.
