The Joys of Redesigning & Repurposing Sentimental Jewelry

Are you looking to transform an old, inherited piece of fine jewelry into something stunning and new? Or maybe you’re trying to add a personal touch to your favorite diamond earrings? Redesigning and repurposing fine jewelry is a rewarding experience that can be both enjoyable and practical. For those pieces that have been passed down and have sentimental value, finding a private jeweler that you trust to help with this process, is crucial. It is very common for people to inherit beautiful pieces, and they end up tossing them in drawer to be forgotten and never enjoyed. Most of the time, it’s not about forgetting about the pieces, rather many do not have the same style as the pieces of jewelry and don’t see themselves ever wearing them. Wouldn’t it be a shame, if we were all able to look down on those we love after we pass, and see our gorgeous diamond and gemstone jewelry not be enjoyed by those that now have them? We would all rather see our next of kins enjoy our memory thru the fine jewelry we pass to them. Would you be upset if your son or daughter redesigned a piece of yours that just doesn’t fit their style? I imagine that most of us would much rather they find a way to enjoy it.

Benefits of Redesigning and Repurposing Jewelry

Redesigning and repurposing fine jewelry has many benefits. For one, it allows you to create something truly unique that showcases your individual style. By working with a private jeweler, you can turn an outdated heirloom into something modern while still preserving its sentimental value. Additionally, redesigning or repurposing existing pieces of jewelry allows you to save money on the cost of buying new materials. We do not always recommend using the existing metal from an older piece, to create a new piece. The reason for this is over time, all kinds of dirt, dust, and other small materials are now part of the piece. If we melt the gold or platinum with the intent to reuse it, the likelihood of it turning out porous significantly increases. Sometimes, we could use old metal with a mix of 60-80% new metal to make sure it creates a piece that is durable and will hold up for generations to come.

The Benefits of Working with Private Jewelers for your Heirloom Jewelry Redesigns

Whether it’s creating something entirely new or just adding some personal touches to existing pieces, working with private jewelers can help bring your ideas to life in ways that simply aren’t possible by buying off-the-shelf items.

I grew up in Chicago where we always had a “Diamond District” – an area of town with a slew of buildings filled with dozens of private jewelry wholesalers and upstairs diamond dealers.

When I moved to Texas, and realized there were few if any private jewelers, and I knew what I should do: Deliver a far more personalized experience, in a far more relaxed and enjoyable environment than any department store jeweler could possibly offer.

And show my clients obviously better diamonds at clearly better prices.
