Sentimental pieces of jewellery are worth more than the precious gems and metals that comprise their financial value. However, if you want an old piece of jewellery remodelled and you are working on a budget, then the cost may be a prime consideration.
So, how much can you expect to invest to get your jewellery remodelled?
It is impossible to give an exact or accurate figure for remodelling because every bespoke piece of jewellery is different. The price can vary based on a multitude of factors, such as the amount of work that you desire to be carried out on the piece, whether new gemstones or metal need to be added. In general, a jewellery redesign can start at £750 and range upward of £4000 depending on the intricacy of the design and the materials used.
Firstly, it is helpful to have a budget in mind and you can discuss both your budget and ideas with a jeweller. They will work with you and help you to decide on a design that works for you, within your parameters. It is important to use a jeweller who is transparent about the costs so you do not exceed your planned budget. An open conversation with your jewellery designer can help give more clarity for you. At Roseanna Croft Jewellery we can give you a ballpark figure after our initial conversation so you can decide which design idea would be right for you.
An experienced and talented designer or goldsmith will dedicate a significant amount of time to producing the exact end-product that you desire. Redesigning and remodelling jewellery involves a notable volume of work. Firstly, they will work with the designs that have been produced in close collaboration with you to craft the piece that you want. More intricate and extensive work will take a longer amount of time and ultimately garner a higher investment than simple changes to the jewellery. Sometimes, more gold or other precious metals are required to perfect the piece, which will also add to the overall cost.
When your jewellery undergoes a remodelling, it truly is an investment. Instead of sitting at the bottom of a drawer, unworn and unloved, your piece will be reborn into something that speaks to you in a new way. You will end up with a piece that you adore so deeply, you will want to wear it every single day for the rest of your life and that makes it well worth the investment.
