In one of our favorite examples of restyling a classic, we turned a traditional strand of pearls into an edgy statement necklace that will certainly turn heads. Our client wanted her short pearl strand to be longer, so to achieve the perfect length, we created blackened sterling silver beads and added them at each end of the strand.

We then added our signature clasp, which we enlarged so that we could stud it with her family gems and small seed pearls taken from old rings that belonged to her mother. We sourced a pink tourmaline to match her two pre-loved gems to add a delicate dash of color to the grittier strand, striking the perfect balance of punk and ladylike.

If your pearl strand feels too prim & proper, bring it to us.  Over the years, we have modernized many pearl strands by restringing them with our signature weathered clasp.
