Restring pearls with The Pearl Girls restringing/reknotting service. We believe in the power of pearls to capture some of life’s greatest moments and to connect us to our ancestors. But those pearls are not doing anything sitting in your drawer with pulled out or broken knots! So, we offer our service to restring your pearls!

The easiest way to maintain your cultured pearl jewelry is to restring pearls on new silk thread.

Why? First, the knots protect the pearls. If they loosen, the pearls can rub together and slowly wear. Also, dirt easily collects in the knotted silk. If it has been a few years, you will be amazed at how fresh and new your pearls look in a new knotted necklace.

We are happy to offer this service for you for just $3 per inch for Medium to Large sized pearls. But, we recently learned a lesson the hard way… knotting smaller pearls take a lot more time! So, we will charge $3 per inch when there are up to 4 knots per inch. If the necklace features pearls 5mm or smaller, where there are more than four knots per inch, we will charge $0.75 per knot. We are privileged to put our team of highly trained women to work on your pearls. You are going to LOVE the way your pearls look!

Do you want to calculate how much your pearls will cost? If your pearls are 7mm in diameter or larger, simply measure your entire strand (include the clasp) and multiply times $3. So, an 18 inch strand of 7mm pearls will cost $54 plus any applicable taxes and shipping. If you have a multiple strand necklace or bracelet, add up the total length. Unless, of course, you only need one strand redone!

For small pearl necklaces knotted and added to a chain, like an Add A Pearl Necklace, count the knots! Or for your little pearl necklaces, count the knots! The charge will be $o.75 per knot. Here is why:

reknot restring an add a pearl necklace by The Pearl Girls

Isn’t this a beautiful necklace? This is a reknot job that we did for one of our Pearl Girl customers. It came out beautifully but it was only 10 inches of pearls on a gold chain. At the time we only charged $3 per inch, or $30, but the job took incredibly long with these 2-3mm pearls. So, for a job like this, we have to charge per knot. The necklace featured 112 pearls so, at $.075 per inch, the charge is $84. This is more realistic of the 3 hours it took to restring and knot this one necklace.

Something else we have learned on this reknot journey… it is not easy to receive a bag of pearls and quickly knot them into a piece of jewelry. We take a lot of time laying out the pearls and making sure they match and flow well in the necklace and we do this before we even start to restring pearls in your jewelry. If the pearls need to be designed or reworked, there will be a design fee of $20 per hour. Usually designs do not take longer than an hour.

Need any pearls drilled? We can do it! It only costs $6 to have a pearl drilled!

We also repair rings, replace clasps, add pearls, subtract pearls and more! Some women send us a collection of beads and pearls. We can work with any medium.. not just pearls!

Anything else? We do a lot! Check out our FAQ and feel free to reach out to us with questions!

In order to utilize our service, we encourage you to ORDER A JEWELRY RETURN KIT.

Now, please know we will contact you when your pearls arrive and we will quote you a price before we start work on your pearls. We don’t want you to get hit with any unforeseen costs! And we also want our pearl knotters to be open about the time and labor involved in doing this work for you! So, order a jewelry return it today. If the job is more expensive than you anticipated, we will happily mail the pearls back to you!

  1. 5 out of 5

    I broke the clasp on my mother’s pearls and had them restrung by a local jeweler.. A month later, I found out about the Pearl Girls. I had them restring my mother’s 48 year old graduated wedding pearls. Let me tell you the difference was amazing. Compared to the other pair, Abby did a wonderful job. I’ve learned to appreciate those tightly made knots. My other necklace was poorly knotted, and the pearls are loosely strung. I didn’t realize it until I had these re-knotted. I also had 2 inches added. You can’t tell a difference. Thanks, Pearl Girls!!!!

    I was fortunate to travel to Tahiti with The Pearl Girls. While visiting the pearl farm, I bought a necklace of beautiful Tahitian black pearls. The pearls were strung, but were not knotted. After wearing them a few times, I shipped them to The Pearl Girls to have them knotted and a new clasp attached. They were returned immediately and my pearls were more beautiful than before. I’m not sure why, but the knitting made each pearls appear to stand alone. And the beautiful clasp added greatly to the whole design. Great job Pearls!

    My pearl bracelet was restrung by the Pearl Girls and not only was it done to perfection but looked brand new AND I received it back immediately! Anytime I walk out of my house, I am wearing pearls from the Pearl Girls. Love love the Pearl Girls!!

  4. GIRLS!

    I am so delighted! I received my restrung pearl bracelet in the mail today and it is stunning. THANK YOU! After getting the bracelet restrung locally – and being completely disappointed in the process – I can finally wear my bracelet with pride. Thank you so much for your great work, speedy delivery, and reasonable pricing. You simply rock. xxxooo

    I am so happy!! I now have the pearl necklace of my dreams. Having 2 necklaces from my 2 favorite people sitting in my drawer for years have been transformed to a gorgeous 37 inch strand of pearls. Their high quality service and talent is unmatched!!! Not to mention their kindness and connection to all girls who love pearls!!
