Remodelling jewellery is a wonderful way to breath new life into family treasures.
We design and make jewellery using gemstones that have sentimental value but we don't use the metal that the items are set into. We unset any gemstones and return the metal to the customer. We don't melt down gold or platinum because metal should be refined and realloyed before being used to ensure that the quality of the metal can be guaranteed. Some people chose to sell the metal we return to them to pay in part or full for the commission. That's something that can be done by taking your gold or platinum to a company with a metal dealers licence, such as Ramsdens.
Since 1999, we have been working with customers to remodel items that belonged to family members and made these treasured pieces things that they will wear every day and remind them of their loved ones. The knock on effect of this is that their children will have a special connection with this new piece of jewellery. Otherwise, people have things lying in boxes that have no meaning to generations who have never met the person who wore it.
Here are a few of our remodelling commissions that we have shared on Facebook.
