Using Your Own Stones

Something Old, Something New…

What Does Remodelling Mean?

If you have an item of jewellery which has been inherited from a loved one or a design which is in need of a new lease of life then our remodelling service is the perfect solution to re- invent something perfect from something tired and unloved.

We can reuse existing metals and stones or even just transfer a key design element. The result would be a beautiful more polished item of jewellery which still holds sentiment and can be cherished for many more generations to come.

Reusing Gemstones

The reusing of stones from preexisting designs is a great way to add a sentimental touch to a new ring and also an ethical approach as we are potentially recycling materials. When using stones however, you have to take into consideration the type of stone and the condition it is in. Metal from the existing setting could be obscuring chipped or damaged stones.

When we receive stones we assess them and can advise you on the best way to show them off in a new setting. If you are looking to reset softer gemstones, such as an emerald, although great care and attention is given they can be more susceptible to damage.

It is also important to keep in mind that if you are looking to match existing stones, it can be harder to match up colour and quality.
