Reusing old jewellery to make brand new pieces is one of our most popular services. We often have customers with handed down or inherited jewellery who feel very sentimental about the pieces, but don't want to wear them as they are.
We start the restyling process by asking what kind of jewellery you usually wear and whether you might have any ideas yet what the new piece of jewellery should look like. Once we have a starting point, we produce a few sketches and mock-ups until we have come up with the perfect design for you.
Usually, restyling jewellery involves melting down the old pieces (after testing that they are made from precious metal) and casting a bar (see our casting page for more information). Any gem stones will be removed first, either to be reused later or to be returned to you. We then mill out the bar cast from your old gold or silver und turn it into a new piece of jewellery using traditional goldsmithing techniques.

In some cases, your jewellery can be customised. Diamonds can be added to a piece for extra sparkle or a pendant can be converted into a ring or a pair of earrings.
Restyling old jewellery is an ethical option too, as it means no mining and no harm done to planet earth (visit our Supplying and Sourcing Ethical Materials page for more information).
So, if you have old rings, necklaces, bracelets, charms or earrings that you no longer wear but that have sentimental value, please contact us and together we can design something new just for you.
