Restyled (repurposed) Jewellery – Bringing new life to old pieces
People go through so many phases in life and plenty will change over the course of the years. It’s only natural that you might at some point start feeling like some of the old pieces in your jewellery box no longer hold the same appeal as they once did. Or you may have been handed down old jewellery from your parents and grandparents or other family and friends that you don’t feel suit you to wear. And that is perfectly fine! You should be able to change up your jewellery: whilst they may be, quite literally, set in stone, we certainly have plenty of tools to transform them!
The propelling reasons behind your will for modification are countless as few objects hold quite so much meaning as jewellery. As keepers of memories, they are inextricably linked to sentimental value, but can still be restyled while preserving this.
Fortunately, there’s no need to let anything go to waste by letting your once cherished pair of earrings or ring sit unused at the bottom of a drawer. If you have not had the urge to put on that necklace you’ve had for the past 20 years, maybe it’s about time to consider giving it a second life. You may wish to maintain the original setting and add a new centre gem or perhaps, keep some of the body but have a refreshed design?
You definitely have options! Our design team would be delighted to work closely with you to discover exactly what the best course of action is in every particular case.
It’s also relevant to point out that if you’d like a ring piece remodelled you’re not bound to recreating another ring out of it! We could turn it into a pendant or a brooch or whatever your heart desires.
While you might wish to keep some of the original stones, we often encourage you to add new ones to the mix as they’re often precisely what your old piece was lacking in terms of being an accurate representation of yourself. Gemstones have a way of speaking to us and matching our personalities, so it makes perfect sense to have some new additions into a repurposed design.
Every occurrence is totally unique and it’s going to be treated as such: maybe you inherited a family pendant that is important to you in many ways, but it’s simply not your style. Maybe you want to upgrade your beloved engagement ring and swap the centre stone for a bigger one. Whatever the scenario, there are so many possibilities we could suggest to you. The process of a bespoke creation is entirely enjoyable and fun, so there’s no reason for apprehension.
Sometimes we need to embrace change in order to welcome new beginnings, but rest assured we’ll proceed with the utmost respect when entrusted with remodelling your memory keepers.

It’s our honour to reimagine and repurpose a heirloom that has always possessed a sparkly soul of itself. But, nonetheless, every so often, jewellery needs to be brought into a different light in order to continue to shine bright.
The journey of restoration is a beautiful one: an arsenal of loving bits and pieces from the past come together to create a luminous new path, resulting in a dreamlike assemblage that defines singularity. And this is renewal at its finest: we’ll rekindle it, but always making sure to preserve its essence.
