Here's a story of a lovely lady....Oh that sounds too much like the "Brady Bunch". I am dating myself here. This beautiful remount is generations of love all wrapped into one. I can't say enough about this wonderful couple. And she was our VIP winner at Christmas! Certainly a "blingy" Holdiay Season! Enjoy and dream!
Three larger diamonds set in white gold prongs very close together. An antique style shank with pavee set diamonds and a milgrain edge add to the detail.

This beautiful set comes with beautiful sentiment. A center diamond, pair of earrings, band and most importantly a wide yellow gold band from this client's father created the perfect set. Using the diamonds in the new engagement ring, the yellow gold bands perfectly frame the new engagement ring. And the best part? The hand engraving from her father's ring is still present. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

This lovely lady transformed a ring and a pendant jacket from her Mother into one amazing ring. We looked at different styles and she chose the best features from each; the shape of the halo, how the diamonds were set in the side and the antique styling of the ring itself. These three different ideas merged into this one beauty. Scroll through and see the before images, the computer generated renderings and, of course, the final result! Enjoy!

This is a gift of rings from grandmother to granddaughter which were transformed into a new pendant and ring. She will always have her grandmother with her. A simple style that will be in style for generations. She has both ring and pendant to remind her of her Grandmother. This story touched my heart. I know how our daughter feels about loosing my Mother so I can appreciate this young woman's love for her Grandmother. This is a great example of the value of sentiment. She really wasn't concerned on the identity of the stones. She simply wanted to wear them.

Here's a different twist on the popular halo setting. This client had an oval solitaire engagement ring. Her idea was to add her children and grandchildren's stones around her center; almost forming a 'family circle' around her diamond. Luckily the halo had just the right amount of settings so each person had 2 stones. The halo was added to her existing ring and her center diamond reset.

Need a clever pearl transformation idea? I hear this predominantly with family who have inherited a strand of pearls, but there is more than one female descendant. Here is an example of a pearl necklace converted into to 2 beautiful bracelets. We added the round, silver rings to increase the length also resulting in a more casual look. Enjoy! bb

A client came in with her original loose diamond, a diamond pendant, a pair of diamond earrings,a diamond ring and a pendant enhancer. The loose diamond is now a beautiful solitaire pinkie ring and the pendant and earrings?...Take a look at the "antique" inspired pendant she created. For the pendant, we used existing settings but fashioned them together in an nontraditional way. So elegant. And there is a ring coming next...so stay tuned...more to come! bb

I wanted to share this touching story with you. Our client's mother and her best friend shared joy and loss throughout their friendship and when it was time to pass on both ladies rings, our client was the recipient. A story of enduring friendship and strength is represented with their stones. Our client added her own engagement ring and the diamond from her husband's grandmother and the result is generations of family and best friends in this one of a kind treasure. Enjoy! bb

Hello everyone! What a glorious day. So many commented on enjoying pictures showing possibilities of re-purposing "bling". Here's one of my favorites for two reasons; not only is the final product stunning but the diamonds came from items many have that may be unworn. A simple diamond pendant and stud earrings became this rose and white gold ring. With no prongs to catch, this simple and elegant style could be worn daily. Enjoy!

Happy Saturday! When a client comes in for a repurposing of jewelry I explain there are three layers to that onion:
1-A new ring in our stock fits the stone perfectly and a new ring is born!
2-With thousands of pieces already available, we find the perfect piece already made that matches her stone(s) size(s) and set the stones.
3-The client likes a certain style from different pieces but her stones may not match settings that already exist. So, we make it from scratch.
In my postings, you have seen all...

Happy Sunshiney Saturday everyone! Sharing this story warms the heart. A wedding gift from mother to daughter combines the bride's Irish heritage with her grandmother's diamond. There is nothing like jewelry to keep generations alive. This cross is sterling silver, with the diamond set in white gold prongs. Have an awesome day!

After over 32 years of working in our family business and creating "treasures", I still am uplifted when a client sees the final product and feels joy. An incredible lady came in with a solitaire diamond, trillion wrap and tapered marquise diamond anniversary band. With the addition of some small round diamonds, she has a new, breathtaking set. I am forever thankful she allowed me to see this vision through and, of course, thankful for her trust.

There are so many stories that take on new life through jewelry that is passed on. This is one of my favorites. This lovely lady's original set along with her mother and mother-in-law's wedding sets transformed into new treasures for herself and her family. She imagined the possibilities and look what was created!

A father and daughter want to create a birthday present to treasure with what is dearest to this mother’s heart; her children. By using the birthstones of her children, a hand crafted neck-piece was created in white gold that may be worn for any occasion. What a wonderful way to capture the sentiment and love this Mother has for her children.

The loss of a parent is profound. The bond between mother and child is unending, even when one is no longer physically present. A client presented a greeting card; the last one given to her by her recently deceased mother. Her Mom signed all the cards for years in the same way “ Much Love! Mom”.
She asked if there was any way to duplicate her Mother’s signature on a pendant that she would wear close to her heart.
Absolutely. The art of hand engraving was the perfect solution. Our hand engraver duplicated her mother’s signature on a 14K yellow gold round disc. The simplicity of the disc made the engraving the focal point of the piece. She loves this piece and wears it daily, keeping her Mom close at heart.

One of the most rewarding parts of the job is having wonderful clients. And we understand when they come with their assortment of jewelry to be redesigned; it holds more meaning to all of us because it isn’t only about the new ring. It is the story of combining the memories in all the pieces into one piece. And odds are that no matter what the design, those memories carry with them every emotion surrounding life’s events; marriage, children, careers, parents, grandchildren. Simply put; life’s ups and downs.
It was our privilege to create a design for one of our favorite people because she is so special to our hearts. Her redesign story is simple: create something new from my engagement ring, anniversary ring and perhaps a pair of earrings. Each piece h...

Create a design incorporating the diamonds into one ring that can be worn daily, making the center diamond low, but with some detail to make it stand out, as it was the client’s original diamond.
- Using 6 large diamonds from the oldest cluster ring, we created a channel using three diamonds on each side of the center diamond. The sides are slightly raised to allow light into these stones as well as keeping the profile of the center low, per the client’s request.
-The center diamond is set in a low, custom designed head with a very special touch. On each side of the center diamond, at the base, are set four small diamonds in the curve of the head. These 8 small diamonds were from the client’s mother’s engagement ring ...

A father and adult daughter came in to create a grandmother’s pendant for their special wife/mom. Our goal was finding a mounting that would take eleven stones in a balanced design; one that looks like it was always meant to be designed that way. With a little creativity, we found a mounting that took five stones and added the additional 6 stones to complete this grandmother’s pendant. They left the placement of the stones to us and luckily the balance of colors was perfect. What a wonderful family surprise.
