We absolutely love pearls that look like this! These pearls have been worn. They were not stuffed away in a jewelry box or a safe deposit box. Some woman wore these pearls to some amazingly significant events. Did she travel the globe in these pearls? Did she meet her soulmate in them? Did she watched her child’s baptism while dressed these hugged her neckline? How many times did she laugh? How many tears did she cry in these pearls? I am sure the stories are endless. And now, there is absolutely no way these pearls can be enjoyed. They are sitting, lost broken and alone in her jewelry box… until she sends them to us!

Why would she mail her pearls across the country to The Pearl Girls repair team? Because unlike most jewelry stores, we have a professionally trained staff skilled in knotting pearls just waiting for gems like these. We take great care in making sure everything is perfect and we do things most other repair companies do not even dream about!

A lot goes into the perfect pearl necklace, the size of the thread, the color and the quality of the silk. How well the knots are tied. If even one pearl is loose or moves, the necklace is not perfect. We make sure it is perfect. A little something called french wire that the thread goes through before it attaches to the clasp. This little piece is essential and many pearl knotters forget this essential step. But not The Pearl Girls, we do it right.

So, what happens with broken pearl necklaces after we apply our care and expertise. Let me show you what your pearls look like NOW:
