    Default Pearl necklace restringing.

    Hello,

    Can anyone in England recommend a postal restringing service that would take less than two weeks?

    My lovely next door neighbour has given me a pearl necklace, the thread is quite discoloured and some of the knots are stretched. The pearls are small and must be forty years old, but the clasp is pretty-14k white gold with a red gem in the middle. I am going on vacation in two weeks time and she is eager for me to take the necklace but I'm worried the thread will break.

    Thank you.

    Hi Fleur and welcome,

    We have a member there in England, Wendy Graham, who does knotting. Recommend you check with her. www.Pearlescence.co.uk

    She would need to advise you what the time allowance would be. What a lovely gift!

    Hi Pattye,

    Thank you, I shall email Wendy tomorrow. I am a pearl novice but think I could quite easily become a pearl obsseive! This forum is such
    a mine of information, I had no idea there are so many different colours and types of pearls. Just had a look on your websites as well-lovely pieces of jewellery!

    Fleur,

    Thank you for the very kind compliment. Pearls can be enchanting, perhaps when yours are restrung you will post a photo?

    Pattye,

    Thank you for recommending Wendy, she did an excellent job.

    I was hoping to visit Pearl Paradise to buy some pearl earrings, but I will be flying out of San Francisco, not Los Angeles, which is a shame.

    I am now hooked on pearls!


    Fleur
