How to Choose the Ideal Pearl Clasp
The ends of pearl necklaces are typically finished with pearl clasps. Moreover, the box-style clasp has a catch within, making it particularly secure and ideal for jewelry made of expensive materials. When choosing one, you need to pay attention to the following:
- Size Considerations: To prevent a hefty clasp from overwhelming a delicate piece of jewelry or vice versa, choose the size of the clasp in relation to the size and weight of the jewelry. Most clasps specify the size in the name of the product.
- Security: Some clasps are held closed by the weight or strain of the jewelry. When wearing light, loose-fitting jewelry, stay away from hook & eye and toggle clasps.
- Hand Strength and Dexterity: In some cases, it might be easier to clasp specific clasps with one hand or with limited dexterity.
Pearl clasps are extremely secure filigree box clasps that are typically shaped like a marquise or oval. They are great for necklaces because they don’t require long fingernails; however, they often need two hands to open and close. Furthermore, they are mainly used for pearls that have been knotted and strung on silk beading cord before being completed with bead bullion or tips.
Another crucial factor to consider is the number of pearl strands you’re dealing with:
Single Strand Clasps
If you only have a single strand of pearls, your clasp must be designed to prevent the strand from flipping. There are various ways to help prevent flipping, which happens to single strand clasps quite often:
- Buy a clasp with a similar size to that of the pearl pendant
- Purchase a double-sided clasp
- Get the rings of the clasp made slightly off-center
Multiple Strand Clasps
When it comes to flipping, jewelry with several strands is less problematic. However, it is crucial to consider if you want the clasp to be larger, smaller, or the same size as your pearl pendant findings. There is a strong likelihood that you won’t be able to string all the pearls to the clasp if the clasp is substantially smaller than the pearls.
You can determine the size of the clasp by comparing the breadth of your pearls when they are laid side by side. This can help you determine whether it is too big or too small for the pearls.
