What do you do with jewelry that you don’t wear? Maybe it’s a piece you inherited from a family member that is too old fashioned or just not your style. Maybe it’s a piece you bought a long time ago that was in style at the time but now looks dated. Or maybe it’s a piece you love that has been damaged. Rather than letting it sit and collect dust in the bottom of your jewelry box, why not redesign it into a piece with a fresh look and style that you’ll actually wear?
If you have a piece that is broken or damaged, you have a couple of options. If repairing it is not possible, you can repurpose the stones into a completely new piece or restore it to its original condition. A jewelry designer can work with you to replicate the original setting and use the stones from the original piece.
If you’re not a fan of the original setting and design, redesigning it into something new is your best option. Redesigning old jewelry is a great way to breathe new life into old jewelry and still maintain the sentimentality of the piece by repurposing the gemstones. The end result is a modern piece of jewelry that complements your personal style. This is a great option for all types of jewelry – rings, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, pendants.
Perhaps the simplest way to redesign your old jewelry is to simply take the gemstones and put them into a new setting. This is the perfect way to create a more up-to-date piece from something that has become outdated. Redesigning your engagement ring or wedding ring is a great way to commemorate a major anniversary and modernize your ring while still keeping the original diamonds.
Another way to redesign an older piece is to keep the setting but change out the stones. Maybe you inherited a piece with a beautiful setting that you love it but it features rubies and you’re more of a sapphire person. Or perhaps you want to swap a smaller stone for a larger, more impressive one.
You can even create a completely different type of jewelry. For example, turn a ring into a pendant, a pendant into a ring, or earrings into a pendant or ring. You can even combine stones from multiple old jewelry pieces into a single new piece. This gives you the opportunity to create any custom setting you desire.
