Topics: Pearl Adhesives

Q.
A friend asked me to repair a pair of pearl earrings for her, but I do not know what type adhesive to use. She said she tried glue once and it destroyed the pearl.

For repairing half-drilled pearl earrings we recommend Loctite 409® gel or G-S Hypo cement, as these are equipped with pinpoint applicators and have quick drying times. The precise application of the adhesive gets the glue where you want it, and not where you don't--helping prevent the glue from getting onto the surface of the pearl, which could have a harmful effect.
