IRON RULE FOR RE-STRINGING PEARLS IN GENERAL:

No matter which medium they are strung on, and no matter how well it has been done: your pearl or bead necklaces/bracelets/anklets WILL eventually break.

Even the strongest thread is aging and getting weaker. By wearing your piece (which is what you should do), the string is exposed to abrasion from bead holes, body oils, cosmetics and simple wear-and-tear.

That said, it is important to have your jewelry restrung from time to time, just to avoid the strands breaking in an inconvenient setting or time.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
COUNT YOUR PEARLS AND SUPPLY INDICATION OF HOW MANY THERE ARE:

(cannot be held accountable for any pearls that go missing during the stringing process if you dont indicate how many there are to begin with!)

This is an easy measure for your own security and peace of mind.

Before sending them in please send an email with a picture and a written number indicating the amount of pearls on your item ( bracelet, necklace, anklet) PLEASE SEND THE PAPER INDICATING HOW MANY PEARLS ON YOUR ITEM WITH YOUR SHIPMENT!

*pearls are round little critters and can roll away by default. Only if your jeweler knows the correct number of your pearls, can he or she ensure that the little stray orb gets reunited with its friends.*

1) IF YOUR NECKLACE IS KNOTTED, IT WILL COME BACK SHORTER AFTER RE-STRINGING

Each and every string will stretch over time. That is especially true with knotted threads - whether they are silk, nylon or any other material. The knots make that problem worse: they loosen and stretch and elongate your necklace even more.

If it's done correctly, your necklace will be knotted very tight, to where no pearl (or bead) has room to move. Your necklace could even have a "wrinkled" look: that is a positive indication of tight knotting, but it will vanish with wearing and straighten itself out.

This tight re-knotting can reduce the size of your necklace easily by a couple of inches or more - depending on the length and previous condition of your necklace.

2) IF YOUR NECKLACE WAS UNKNOTTED AND YOU WANT IT KNOTTED, IT WILL COME BACK LONGER

That's only natural: the knots themselves add length to your strand.

How much longer will it be? That depends on the size thread that will be used, as well as the number of pearls on your strand.

3)GRADUATED PEARLS DONT ALAYS GIVE THE BEST RESULTS

(most of the time i just knot the ends near the clasps and just string the pearls without knotting the rest of the strand so your only charged for about 3 inches on both sides.)

Very often, graduated pearls (or beads) differ not only in size, but also in the diameter of their holes. When that's the case, it is almost impossible to achieve a perfectly restrung necklace, and the knots between the beads will appear to be uneven.

Explanation: When knotting pearls, the thickness of the string being used is determined by the diameter of the pearl hole. What may fit through a small hole may not yield a knot that's large enough for the next bead. This smaller knot may slip into the inside of the hole, leaving an undesirable result.

That situation calls for a major reassessment: whether the necklace is better off left un-knotted, or whether it is better to accept a less than perfect knotting job.

Either way, the outcome frequently will be a compromise and you should be aware of it.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
IF YOU HAVE A MULTI STRAND NECKLACE, ALL STRANDS SHOULD BE RESTRUNG AT THE SAME TIME

( other wise your item wont get re-strung, sorry but theres a reason for it.)

No, that's not to get more business out of you.

Especially when "nested", (the classical, tiered look) it is crucial to have all strands redone at the same time. Why?

Simply because when string ages, stretches and gets brittle, it does that on the entire necklace, not just the one strand that broke. Fixing just the one broken strand will mismatch the other strands in length and appearance: remember that they stretch over time, and a freshly knotted strand is shorter than before its repair.

Besides, it's less money if you have them done at the same time!
