I just love breathing new life into tired, old jewellery. Some of my clients come in with sentimental pieces that were much loved but are outdated and worn out. Many have lovely precious gemstones trapped in jewellery designs that simply don't do them any justice. Others have a hodgepodge of old rings, chains, single earrings, or loose stones that are collecting dust in their jewellery boxes. Here is an example of a custom design project where the diamonds were reused and the gold recycled.
My clients came in with a collection of old rings. The diamonds were lovely but trapped in outdated settings that were doing nothing to showcase their beauty. For this particular project, my clients were fairly open and did not have any specific predetermined ideas. I drew several sketches for their consideration:
The design that resonated most was this lovely cluster style ring that incorporates some vintage flare with contemporary elements. It turned out beautifully and showcases the diamonds to their full potential.
