If you’ve inherited Diamond jewellery that isn’t quite your style or want to restyle some of your own Diamond jewellery, we’ve got some ideas for you.
“Repurpose, reuse and recycle” are words we hear everywhere at the moment. All generations are taking a much keener interest in saving money and helping the environment by giving old items new life. You may spend ages separating your recycling into different categories, donate your old clothes to the charity shop or paint your furniture to give it a facelift, but have you ever considered “upcycling” your under-used Diamond jewellery into new pieces that you’ll be excited to wear every day?
You may have inherited a piece from an old relative, want to upgrade your wedding jewellery or have simply outgrown the style of certain pieces in your jewellery box. The new piece you create with the old gemstones will have so much sentimental value, which means you can pass the new piece down, along with a story of how it came to be. You’ll create a tangible way to bridge generations for years to come. Here are some ideas of ways in which you could repurpose your old Diamonds.
For most jewellery wearers, there is no such thing as too many rings, whether you stack them up or let them shine on their own. Recycling a Diamond or Diamonds into a ring ensures you are giving the stones a new lease on life for generations to come.
Whether you have one Diamond or several, why not consider a bracelet as a new home for your old gemstones? A bangle bracelet inlaid with one diamond or many, or a delicate chain with a simple Diamond solitaire charm dangling from it are both lovely choices.
Making a huge comeback this year are pins. If you have an old Diamond you would like to reuse, consider adding it into a pin design. Pins are so versatile and can be as easily worn on a jacket during the day as in your hair for a wedding.
A necklace is great choice when re-designing jewellery. A minimal bezel setting surrounding a Diamond of any size on a delicate chain is a style that looks great with any outfit. Whichever precious metal you choose, this piece will no doubt become a staple of your jewellery wardrobe. If simple is not your thing, consider an initial, or heart for your design, or if it’s for a gift, choose a symbol that represents them. These can be set with your Diamond and make your piece even more personal to you.
