The only thing I can think of is to cut out the rhinestones you don't need and then solder the ends back together. I just don't know exactly how you would solder the ends... maybe someone else has better information (you could ask around on the glass board for stained glass people who would know which solder to use). Good luck!

I have not done this myself but I have a broken rhinestone necklace I need to fix and I think I'm going to try this item:


Their description says:

No soldering necessary. Just slip this chain end under the last rhinestone link of your rhinestone chain, and use jewelry pliers to fold the prongs over the edges of the stone. Use jump rings to attach other jewelry findings.
