Design 16 - Sapphire Ring Replacement
Brief:A sentimental ring was beyond repair and too fragile to wear; supply a similar ring but use the same stones if possible.
The process:Using our database of ring designs, we found a ring style very similar to the original ring that would fit the same three sapphires from the original. Our goldsmiths carefully removed the old stones before setting them into the new mount, along with four smaller diamonds for added sparkle.
Our customer had realised it was not economically viable to repair the original and by using the original stones kept that sentimentality of the old with the practicality of the new. She now has a ring that can be worn regularly and was delighted with the result - we certainly think this was the most sensible thing to do in this case.
