Replica Damaged Ring
Posted on: 28/04/2016
The brief:To recreate a damaged but sentimental diamond ring as closely as possible.
The process:The customer's ring became damaged over time and they were keen to keep the same 'look' rather than opt for an alternative replacement.
Our goldsmiths went to great lengths to find components from a range of suppliers in order to piece together an exact replica. Once pieced together, it was hand finished to further improve accuracy of the copy. The last stage was to reset the original diamond and send the ring off for hallmarking.
Replicating the original ring that was quite literally 'falling apart' was a great idea and the customer was really pleased with the final piece. With sentimental pieces it is sometimes hard to accept that a replacement is better than a repair, but being able to replicate a design and/or use original gemstones can be a sensible solution to maintaining some of that sentimentality.
