Updating An Old Diamond Necklace Into A New Design

Updating An Old Diamond Necklace Into A New Design

I absolutely loved this commission because my customer had a ring remodelled into a necklace elsewhere and was a bit underwhelmed by the finished piece and I was able to make a necklace design that she really loved.

In the original necklace, the three diamonds had been made to sit next to each other and while there is nothing wrong with this design, it was a little lost on her neck. Three diamonds on a finger will look larger than when transferred into a necklace because of the scale of the finger to a neck.

To make a more impressive necklace, each of the diamonds was given an individual circular frame that intersected with each other. Each diamond sits within a larger circle and is set in a rubbed over setting that echos the shape. This design has a lot of movement and is very eye catching. The light reflects from the gold circles as well as the diamonds. It has so much style. We think this design will also look great with different coloured gemstones.

The reason why this necklace commission was such a success was because I really listened to what my customer didn't like about her exisiting necklace, what she wanted to achieve by changing it and then I checked that I understood exactly her taste and style.
