I just love breathing new life into tired, old jewellery. Here is an example of a redesign project where all the diamonds in the new ring had been removed from a set of outdated rings that were not being worn by my client. I designed a completely new and unique ring around her old diamonds for a much more striking effect.
THE DESIGN PROCESS
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 The diamonds were lovely but trapped in outdated settings that were doing nothing to showcase their beauty.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.
