Have your cake and eat it, incorporate the sentimental value of older jewellery into a new piece that is perhaps more to your taste.
It is a privilege to hear the wonderful stories behind some pieces of jewellery and the characters that they once belonged to, as jewellers we get great pleasure from seeing an old or unused piece of jewellery being brought back to life, perhaps reinterpreted, but most importantly, being worn again.
So we like to listen. To understand where its come from and where you want to take it to. And whatever we can’t use – say perhaps the metal – we can use the value of that metal against the new design, helping to keep the cost down.
