At J McCarthy, our pearl rethreading and restringing service is designed to offer a professional service that can bring your pearls back to their former glory. We are experts in pearl knotting, using traditional and modern methods to the highest standard.
Over time, wearing your pearl necklace may often result in the silk thread being exposed to abrasion from bead holes, body oils, cosmetics as well as general wear-and-tear. We therefore recommend that pearls are worn often, but also rethreaded every few years to avoid the silk thread breaking, resulting in losing some of the pearls.
Once we identify your specific needs and discuss them with you, we will offer you an estimate for the work. Our rethreading starts at just £75 per string of uniform pearls, and takes roughly two to three weeks. We can also repair or replace clasps if broken as well as add magnetic clasps where required for ease, or we can source beautiful ornate decorative gemstone and diamond antique clasps. We take a meticulous approach and we ensure that we use a combination of the latest and traditional methods because we take great pride in the quality of our work being of a consistently high standard.
Our prices are competitive but we never compromise on quality as a result as we appreciate just how important pearl jewellery is to our clients.
