Jewellery Remodelling: How to Repurpose Vintage Jewellery
Transforming vintage jewellery into custom pieces can help you to fall back in love with worn out items of jewellery. With limitless design possibilities, jewellery remodelling allows you to repurpose vintage jewellery into more wearable and contemporary pieces. With our passionate and knowledgeable designers, you can put your trust in us to transform your beloved jewellery into something new.
For inspiration on how to remodel vintage jewellery, here are a few of our favourite ideas:
Transforming a family heirloom into a more modern and contemporary item, we can create an individually designed piece. The yellow gold from Grandma’s wedding ring can be used on the inside of wedding rings. For example, often we use inherited family wedding rings to incorporate into a couples new wedding rings, giving these very special items of jewellery even more of a sentimental significance.
As you can see in the image above, the beautiful purple amethyst was extracted from an old, gold necklace. It was then polished and designed into a much more modern pair of earrings, complemented by surrounding silver.
When putting multiple accessories forward for jewellery remodelling, why not repurpose it into one statement piece. Collections of rings in particular can be combined into a single stacking ring. This can use the best parts of the metal and highlight the original gems.
Alternatively, if the metal is over worn or if the jewellery isn’t to your taste, stones can be repurposed. Diamonds and coloured gemstones can be crafted into bespoke jewellery, including matching earring and necklace sets. Regardless of how many stones you have to work with, our creative team are here to help propose possible designs.
In some cases of jewellery remodelling, you may just want to simplify the design to make it more suited to your personal taste. As you can see with the ring above, our team were able to remodel the ring into a more modern design.
