On the bench… a commission to re-use sentimental gold

On the bench today… we showcase how you can re-use a sentimental item of jewellery

A customer came to us with the hopes of re-designing two inherited engagement rings, looking for a ‘statement’ piece that would re-use the existing gold and diamonds from their sentimental pieces.

Taking inspiration from our popular Husk ring (its simple design is practical yet versatile, with the option of a being set with any of a range of stones) we sketched out some ideas and began work…

Numerous processes later (including melting the original rings down, adding some additional new metal, forming a solid shank and doming the setting) and we arrived at a ring ready to accept the pavé set diamonds.

Our workshop has witnessed numerous transformations of sentimental and inherited jewellery for customers over the years – it’s a lovely way to give your jewellery a new sense of purpose for either yourself or loved ones.
