Remodelling Your Old Jewellery Into New Pieces

There is a high chance that you have some old jewellery. It might be your own pieces that are no longer loved. it might be some bits that are broken, tired or just no longer fashionable. You might have also inherited some jewellery from your grandparents or your parents. 

There is something beautiful about keeping the provenance and sentimentality of that old piece. Perhaps it was your first engagement ring (now replaced with something bigger) or it might be your mum's wedding ring or dad's signet ring. That piece might not be to your taste, but why not recycle it?

Eco - Friendly & Cost Saving

There is a benefit for the environment in re-cycling that old piece. You get to save a small scrap of precious metal or gemstone from being mined. You also benefit from a potential cost saving. If you are recycling silver, you won't experience a cost saving, but you will increasingly for 9k gold, 18k gold and platinum. 

Remodelled Jewellery To Your Taste

So that old jewellery design is just not you. Of course grandma loved it, but that was 60 years ago. So why not have the comfort of wearing it again, but made to your style. Once it has been taken apart and melted down, you can literally have one of a million things made.

The Benefits

  1. The jewellery can be taken apart.
  2. The metal can then be smelted
  3. A new design is created to your brief using your old precious metal
  4. The gemstones can then be re-set if required into the new design.
  5. A new valuable piece of jewellery is created .
  6. The new piece is more valuable than the cost to recycle it
  7. You keep the sentiment and provenance of the original jewellery, but now in a new form.
  8. You breathe new life into your precious metal and gemstones for a new generation.

Remodelled Rings

For example


The lady wanted her old ring re-styling after a friend mentioned it looked like a frog. If you look at the ring below, you will see what she meant from the old ring design.


After that she couldn't un-see the frog.


More gold was required to make the new, more modern design.

Virtually any new design can be created from the old jewellery. If more metal is required,, I can supply that. If more or different gemstones are required, then they can also be supplied. 

Soundwave Jewellery or Heart Beat 

How about having a beautiful new piece made with an expert engraving of a special heart beat or soundwave. It is simple to create such soundwaves with apps on your smartphone or perhaps use an ECG printout, you might have from the hospital.

Sometimes a piece of jewellery just needs some TLC. It can be repaired or re-made in the original design.


The last route is to simply recycle or upcycle the inherited jewellery. I can repair, restore or melt and remake something.
