Restringing is fundamental to the preservation of pearls and gemstone beads. We suggest restringing every one to two years, depending on the frequency of wear. At Jewels That Dance we string with silk so that your pearls and beads lie attractively when worn. Our experienced professionals advise all pearls and beads be knotted between each pearl and stone to insure safety. Though this is more time consuming, it is the standard by which all fine pearls and gemstones should be strung.
