How It Works
The Add-A-Pearl Process
Starting the Tradition
Choose Your Necklace
Add-A-Pearl Necklaces are usually started with 1, 3 or more pearls on a chain. You can choose either a 14k yellow gold, 14k white gold or Sterling Silver chain.
With A Charm
You may wish to engrave a date, initials, or nickname so she'll always remember the occasion.
With a Fancy Clasp
You can choose to add a beautiful clasp to make the necklace extra special. All necklaces include a standard spring ring-jump ring clasp adorned with the Add-A-Pearl name. You may elect to upgrade your clasp at any time in the future.
Receiving Your Necklace
Every necklace will arrive in our signature Add-A-Pearl Necklace box, including an attractive booklet along with information about the quality, pearls and time-honored tradition of Add-A-Pearl.
In addition, a padded envelope will be enclosed to protect her necklace when you are ready to send it back to us to add pearls.
To An Existing Necklace
Additional pearls can be purchased to mark the special occasions in your favorite girl's life. From her first birthday to becoming a beautiful bride, pearls can be added one at a time or you may wish to collect several pearls to add in groupings at a later date.
To add pearls to her necklace, there are two options:
Traditional method & Pearls on-hold method
Option One for Adding Pearls
Traditional Gift Method
We'll send her gift of pearls in our signature Add-A-Pearl gift box with information on how to send the new pearls and necklace to us for stringing. Complimentary gift wrapping is available.
Option Two for Adding Pearls
Pearls on-hold Method
With Pearls On-Hold, we will keep the pearls you ordered set aside for when we receive your necklace. If you select Pearls On-Hold, it lets us know that we aren't sending pearls to you at this time. Instead, you are sending your necklace directly to us for a pearl addition. You may choose to keep several orders On-Hold until you are ready to send your necklace to us for stringing.
With Pearls On-Hold, you have the option to send a personalized e-Gift message to your gift recipient to let them know they have pearls reserved especially for them. Your e-Gift message will be delivered to your inbox along with your order confirmation for you to forward as an email, print out for conventional mailing, or present as a gift in-person.
There are several designs to choose from for a Pearls On-Hold e-gift message.
Mailed gift messages are sent in a gift box with information about how to add pearls.
