I tried googling this and searching on the forum, but I must be the worst researcher ever because I can't find anything . Can Chanel pearls be repainted if the top layer chips? Can Chanel do it or do you have to bring them to a special jeweler? Thanks so much for any help. I just bought a timeless pearl necklace and want to know if I can wear them alot and just get them touched up now and then or if I need to save them for very special occasions. For those with Chanel's faux pearl jewelrey how is yours holding up?
