An Antique Ring Reborn


An engagement ring is probably the most precious piece of jewellery you will ever own, and some simply can’t imagine jewellery redesign as an option.

When our client brought her engagement ring in to us it was in some serious need of TLC.  The ring was an antique when Mrs W received it and she absolutely loved both the design and the history that came with it.  There is something magical about wearing an old piece of jewellery and wondering about the stories it could tell and jewellery redesign is a great way to keep those tales alive.

Due to the wear of the ring and its age the claws were becoming weak and the band becoming very thin.  We tried to repair it but in the end it seemed as though jewellery redesign was going to be the best option.  Mrs W asked for us to keep the beautiful design and to use the same metal and Diamonds so that the history of the ring was still contained within the new one.

We carefully removed the Diamonds and melted down the Platinum, then forming it into the same design as the original.  Mrs W came in to collect her ring and was very nervous!  We understand how precious your jewellery, particularly engagement and wedding jewellery is and it can be a nerve-wracking and emotional time seeing your jewellery redesign for the first time.  It was certainly emotional! Roseanna and I had a heart stopping moment when we weren’t sure if the eyes filled with tears and the hand over the mouth were a good or bad sign, but fortunately it was with pure joyful emotion that Mrs W exclaimed “I love it, thank you!”.

Moments like these are why we do what we do; why we take such great care with your jewellery and why we involve you so much in the process, to make sure you leave with something you are in love with.
