Was this necklace strung incorrectly?

by cdarcher40(AT)yahoo(DOT)com

I have a long necklace that I love - it is made of "chocolate" pearls.

But, when I wear it - the necklace pinches the hairs on the back of my neck!!!!
Was it strung incorrectly? What's up with this necklace?
Any suggestions?
Thank you,

Maybe NOT knotted
by: Anonymous

I have strings of freshwater pearls that are not knotted, just on a string, and they do indeed pinch the neck hairs! The solution is, of course, to restring the pearls using knots. I hope this helps even at this late date.

Hi Cynthia,

I honestly have no clue as to why the necklace pinches you. It must be quite a heavy strand of pearls. Without seeing it there's no way to know if the knots are OK. The knots should fit tightly next to the pearls with no large gaps between pearls. I wear pearls quite frequently and have never had this problem. It may not always be possible, but it sounds like you'll be more comfortable if you could wear it so it goes under a collar at your neck.

Thanks for asking your question. Maybe someone else can offer a solution.
