Cost to knot pearl necklace?

I bought a 14″ stand of pearls in Japan six years ago. I love it, and since I love it so much, I want to have the necklace knotted at a jewelry store. I know the necklace is real, from what I paid and the grittiness, “glow”, and individuality of each pearl. Personally, I think the necklace would lay a little nicer and softer on my neck if it were knotted, as well as for security and up-keep reasons. What do you think this would cost? I’d appreciate any estimates. I wear the necklace for v. special events only, as I have a fake one that can take the beating. If the necklace were knotted, I might be tempted to wear it more. However, if this knotting will cost me upwards of $100, I might be hesitant to do it and stick w/ my usual fake. Any estimates?

LoveKnots answers:

$100 ?? Wow..it is very expensive!!!
I know a website sells jewelry at very reasonable price, also offered pearl necklace,only $35.00

Good mothers day present?

LoveKnots answers:

Make a laminated (or non-laminated) bookmark: find pictures of the two of you or pictures she would like out of a magazine or inspiring words- it can be a few small pics or just one. Cut the construction paper to the size you want and start gluing the pictures on, then take it to Staples/Office Max, Office Depot or a store like that and get it laminated, then cut it. After hole-punch the top and put a ribbon or twine of some kind through the hole and tie it in a knot. You can even skip laminating it.

Make a ‘love jar’ and fill it with origami hearts, flowers and slips of paper with notes of appreciation written on them or ‘I love you’ written in different languages (on the back write which language it is).

Paul asks…

I don’t know what dress to wear?

Im going to homecoming with my friend and we agreed to wear teal. So I need a teal dress..but all the ones I find are ugly. Can someone post a link of teal dresses as some options?
I plan to have my hair down curled and maybe silver or diamond jewelry.,please help me :(

LoveKnots answers:

How much are you willing to pay? This one is so cute but it’s $350 so I’m not sure if you’d want to pay that. Http://www.thepromdresses.com/Sherri_Hill/Sherri_Hill_2944_Teal_Homecoming_Dress/

You should totally try Dillards or JcPenney’s though! Their dresses are cheap and so cute!

This is more of a bright blue than a teal, but maybe it could work? :)

Mandy asks…

Christmas Gift for Girlfriend?

I’m having trouble thinking of a gift to give my girlfriend for Christmas. We’ve been dating for almost 10 months and she is 18. a couple months ago i got her a snow cone maker and a thirty minute massage at a massage place for her birthday. But i can’t think of anything this time. Our relationship is serious. I appreciate any ideas.
besides jewelry.

LoveKnots answers:

There’s lots to choose from!

Do you know of anything she treasured as a little girl? My sister always wanted a barbie growing up and never got one, so for Christmas I got her a barbie and she was so happy she cried. It’s more because I remembered than the fact that she still wanted one, lol

If you have any pictures of the two of you you could do one of 2 things.
1: make a little scrap book, but only fill in the beginning & tell her there’s room for what comes next :)
2: take a nice pic of the two of you & put it in a nice picture frame. I had a boyfriend who did that for me & it was a wooden picture frame that had inscribed all the reasons he “loved me”. It was very sweet!
If you want to go the useful way, Mani and Pedi gift certificates are nice.

If you get her jewelry, but want to go a unique way, I would do something like the FORGET ME NOT RINGS you can get at uncommon goods. The silver one is only $50.00, the sentiment is sweetromantic & it’s also very contemporary. She won’t know anyone who got the same thing!

Whatever you get her, if she’s that special one she’ll appreciate it because it came from you :)

Lizzie asks…

Need a knot that will hold string around flat, circle shaped object…any ideas?

I have seven circles made of multicolored glass, every more or less size of a quarter. Want to tie them together, in a row possibly, so I could hang it on my window. But how to do it? I know there’s a trick to tie circle flat objects, even knew how to do it once, but now, for the love of god, can’t remember it. Please, if anyone know any solution…
Glass can’t be glued with any glue or damaged any other way (like drilled through), as I need to keep this plates in same shape (they pretty expensive for me and I’ll probably need them later, so…).
Any ideas?

LoveKnots answers:

Strange as it may sound, I’d suggest heavy clear tape. You can remove the sticky stuff later with simple rubbing alcohol, with no damage to the glass — unless it has dye painted on the surface. Test a tiny patch on the edge to find out.

If that doesn’t appeal, go to the crafts supplies store and purchase a roll of 24ga or 26ga jewelry wire. The craft wire (not sterling or anything like that) isn’t expensive — maybe $2.- for 15 yards or more. The thinner gauges (26 and 24) can be snipped with a regular nail clipper, but are still sturdy enough to hold glass. Cut three pieces a yard long. Bend them in the middle. “Weave” a 6-strand cage around each glass circle, twisting the wires together at the top of each piece. Make a loop out of what’s left over at the top. For extra security, wrap one small piece horizontally around each glass coin.
