Restringing service

Through wearing your pearls the silk string is exposed to abrasion from bead holes, body oils, cosmetics and simple wear-and-tear. So we recommend to restring your pearls occasionally to avoid the strands breaking in an inconvenient setting or time, prolong their life and keeping them looking their best.

I would be happy to restring your necklace. I use top quality 100% silk as standard, but can use a silk substitute if preferred, and will clean the pearls if it is required.

I normally charge £35 plus return postage for a ~18 inch single strand pearl necklace. I normally take payment through a paypal request, but I can take cash if in person. Postage costs are approximately £8 for Special Delivery (£12 for international insured shipping).

Please contact me by e-mail ( or by telephone (07947 609062) and I will agree a quote and send you details of where to post your jewellery to.
