Need your pearls to be custom drilled or half drilled?
Pearl Drilling–We Can Custom Drill Hole Sizes in Pearls or Beads: Usually 0.7mm is the standard size of hole. If you would like any pearl strands or beads in our unfinished jewelry section to be drilled with larger holes for thicker materials such as leather cords, lace or ribbon, you can use our special pearls drilling service and have the pearls custom drilled to 3mm or larger hole sizes. However, please note pearls need to be sufficiently large. Please also allow for an additional 2-3 weeks (although padded with extra time) to custom drill the pearls according to your requirements.
Half drilled loose or individual pearls:
Half drilled pearls are also usually used for making pendants, earrings, rings, or just for keepsake by putting the pearls in a pearl cage. We have all types of half drilled pearls from drop pearls to button pearls, to coin pearls, to round pearls, to flat coin pearl, to rectangular biwa pearl, to square Keshi pearl and more!
