Before & After: Cocktail Ring Reset Into Stacking Rings For Kathleen
Kathleen inherited a large cocktail ring featuring a few Old Mine Cut diamonds. The ring did not feel like her style, and also didn't fit her hand. After removing the largest diamond for her engagement ring and smaller diamonds for a pair of earrings, she had three uniquely shaped stones left. She wanted something that she could wear every day, and felt practical to wear in her restaurant. We removed three of the stones and created a set of stacking rings that could be worn separately or all together.
About our Heirloom Redesign services
We consider heirloom redesigns to be our bread + butter, and we love working with clients to recreate their previously well-loved jewelry into something new and special. By re-working your old pieces, we can maintain the sentimental value that inherently lies in stones + metal, and produce something that will become a favorite piece for years to come.
Some of the projects we can do are:
- Take apart an old diamond engagement ring and using the stone in a new setting
- Create a solitaire pendant necklace out of an old stone
- Reset uniform matching stones into a tennis bracelet
- Combine gemstones from various pieces into a cluster style ring or necklace
- Remove diamonds from an old band and create new diamond studs
We work with precious stones like diamond, ruby and sapphire, and handle semi-precious stones on a case by case basis. We do not work with heirloom emeralds, pearls, opals, or tanzanite.
Our pricing begins at $1,800 – our average project costs $2,300 without additional stones, and $3,000-$5,000 with additional stones added in.
