Double strand clasp?

I have a pearl necklace sitting unused in my drawer. I feel too conspicuous wearing pearls near my face, I feel like it attracts too much attention to me (Look at my fingers, yes! But not my face!)

I am thinking of restringing it into a double strand bracelet. From reading threads here, it seems that I could probably restring it myself, but I cannot find a nice clasp for a double strand. Has anyone seen findings like this? Or does it make more sense to send it off to someone like DK to redo with a custom clasp?

There are plenty of standard findings available that you'll be able to find for this. It may be worth going to your trusted jeweler and just asking what they have available as a starting point.

Clasps are pretty uncommon for custom projects, but not unheard of. It depends if you want something fairly standard or more ornate, I would think.

Here’s one that’s totally crazy and I love it! Might be missing a stone but thought I’d share.

I think I need to do some better searching for clasps! I didn't come up with anything on my search. Vintage is definitely a great idea, I'd love something that had a previous life. I'll post a photo of the pearls when I get home tonight!

KGH based in Israel makes gorgeous clasps, and I got my 2-strand one via Pearl Paradise ages ago, about 20mm in diameter.

PP put me in touch with them, and they custom made a pair of diamond earring jackets for 8mm pearls using part of the clasp for me (shown with my near 0.5ct/6mm stud which are too small for the jackets).
