Melt Away the Old Design
Jewelry is crafted from strong gemstones and precious metals. The materials used are welded and tightly fitted into place. It takes real skill and craftsmanship to manipulate precious metals and gemstones.
We use precious metals because they are tough and can withstand daily wear and tear. However, add high heat and the metal becomes like putty. We can metal down the precious metal and reuse it to craft the foundation for the new design. While it won’t be the same piece, it has the same metal.
Gemstones can be reshaped, resized and re-set. Personalized jewelry is all about the right gemstone for you. A common redesign is using a necklace pendant to make vibrant earrings. Or designing an old engagement ring into stunning diamond studs. The options are limitless when it comes to recreating gemstones. Sometimes you get lucky and end up with an additional piece if the gemstone is big enough.
Recreating your old jewelry is a symbolic moment for the obstacles you have overcome to get you to this point. Making the new piece now will not only represent the past but also your future.
