On page 168 of Rio’s Gems and Findings catalog there is a 14K pearl
shortener - I’m looking at the one with the hinge and the two spaces
rather than the typical loops. Does anyone know where to find the
same thing in silver or even base metal? Or, alternatively, a gold
one but with space for two strands of pearls. I have a client who
was wondering about soldering two together and we thought it would
be better to experiment with ss or base metal before we tried the
gold. Thanks so much.
