One of the biggest tragedies that can befall a pearl jewelry owner is when a necklace or bracelet breaks, leaving only part of the strand remaining. Often, one or more of the pearls will disappear, which makes salvaging the necklace useless. Fortunately, there is a way to rejuvenate pearl jewelry that has lost a few key pearls, and you can even get creative while doing it.

If You Want To Turn Back The Clock

When you have a set of pearls break on you, or if you find an incomplete strand that you never knew you had, you may simply want to bring the pearl necklace back into a usable form. This can be easily done with one or a few loose pearls of similar color. While it may not be cheap, this is the best way of turning an incomplete strand into a brand new piece of jewelry. This is also a great time to inspect the pearls for broken or cracked pearls so that you can replace them as well.

For A Completely New Look

While you may want to turn back the clock on a set of white pearls, more exotic options also open the door to great looking alternatives for those who aren’t as interested in simply renewing their old pearl jewelry. For a more colorful pearl necklace, you can choose to replace the missing pearls with ones that are of similar color, creating a bold new look that will really get noticed. This is also a better option if you have to replace a number of pearls, and are really interested in getting creative with the result.

When you have a broken or incomplete set of pearls, there is no reason to look at is as a lost piece of jewelry. You can just as easily bring it back to its former glory, or completely eschew the old look for a fashionable, funky new take on your pearl jewelry.
