Bead and Pearl Restringing
Even with the best of care, the highest quality of beaded or pearl jewelry will need repairs eventually. This is because while the highest quality materials comprise the thread, monofilament, wire or even chain of a beaded or pearl necklace, the material will age and get weaker over time as the string is exposed to the abrasion of bead holes, body oils, cosmetics and simple wear-and-tear. In order to prevent this breakage at an inconvenient time, potentially causing the loss of beads or pearls, we recommend having your necklaces restrung, on occasion, at Lee Michaels Fine Jewelry stores. As the leading jeweler throughout Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi and New Mexico, you can trust Lee Michaels to service jewelry items purchased at Lee Michaels Fine Jewelry stores, online with lmfj.com, or any jewelry items purchased elsewhere.
Bead and Pearl Restringing Services at all Lee Michaels Fine Jewelry Stores
Knotted necklaces or bracelets include an individual knot, hand strung, between each pearl or gemstone. This style of jewelry manufacturing is used for approximately 90% of all fine pearl necklaces.
Unknotted jewelry feature pearls or gems hand strung onto a cord or silk. This is typically used for less expensive gemstones or pearls, allowing the pearls or gemstones to sit flush next to each other.
