i suggest you get help from professional jeweler. restrung a pearl necklace needs unique thread and unique knotting method to prevent pearls from falling off. if you just lead the string through the center of pearl without knoting at each side of the pearl, the whole strand is easy to falling and you would lose some pearls!

You can buy specialist thread from specialist bead shops - its stronger than thread and will be least likely to snap. You can get threads that are part transparent so will work well with pearls.

Take a piece along to a fishing tackle shop and ask if they have anything similar,thread like that is used to whip the eyes on fishing rods(whipping thread)you can't snap it.As for threading it through just suck the end and thread like a needle,good luck.
