    Oh, that's gorgeous! The pearls look round in the photo so I didn't realize they were baroques. Unfortunately, the tails on baroque akoyas do tend to break off over time from wear. I have had to scrap a few pearls due to the same thing. I do love baroques though. They seem to have more colors than round pearls. Glad you have a jeweler who can laser weld the clasp peg and reattach the pearl. I used a laser welder in my jewelry class to attach a backing to an old filigree earring that I made into a ring. It's a really neat (and probably very expensive) machine, but it can do wonders!

    I love what you did and the clasp is perfect. I like it centered just how you are wearing it. It looks great on you. Hopefully it can be repaired by your jeweler. What a great job!

    It turned out beautifully and the clasp really adds to the look. Hope you can get it repaired.

    Last night after work I took Pattye's advice and strung a fine wire through the replacement pearl and was able to attach it securely into the back of the clasp. The wire is almost invisible. Such great advice! Thanks again Pattye.

    Just a hunch, so glad you worked it out and buys you time until you decide to do a more permanent fix.
