Pearl & Bead Re-threading
If you wear your pearls and beads often, it is advisable to have them restrung periodically, Coppins recommend annually. Knotting the strand between each pearl or bead will prevent them all from falling off in the event of breakage. Also, knotting prevents the pearls or beads from rubbing against one another and causing damage, pearls and beads can also be cleaned during this process.
If a ring you have been wearing has become to tight, Coppins have the tools to remove it with care and minimal damage, after which we suggest the finger is allowed to return to normal over a week or two, then if you wish we can remeasure, repair and adjust the size.
