Garnet Ring Remodel
Posted on: 02/03/2016
The brief:To remodel an old, unwanted garnet ring into a more modern design.
The process:This customer had an old family heirloom that really didn't suit their tastes and so wasn't being worn. We removed the old and worn shank and replaced it with a much plainer, heavyweight design. The original head and setting of the ring was kept and once given a deep clean and polish by our goldsmiths, it was completely revived.
Jewellery is meant to be worn so if there is a piece you know you'll never wear, why keep it locked away doing nothing? Re-modelling jewellery is an ideal way to bring those sentimental or inherited pieces back to life.
