Harrogate, UK (PRWEB UK) 23 May 2014
Remodelling jewellery, often referred to as ‘recycling’ or ‘restyling’, is just that. Old or unwanted jewellery can be remodelled into a new item using the existing gemstones and metals. It can be a more cost effective way of receiving a new piece of jewellery. Furthermore, it can sometimes add value to jewellery.
The Harrogate-based Jewellers has noticed that the majority of their remodelling business is based on jewellery that clients have inherited. ‘Recycling’ such jewellery retains the sentimental aspect lost if the items are sold. Rather than such jewellery wasting away in a jewellery box, re-making it into a piece that will be cherished and worn can be an attractive proposition.
After inheriting a diamond broach and it gathering dust in a jewellery box for decades, a Harrogate-based lady decided to “recycle” the diamond and use it to make a diamond engagement ring for her daughter. As an heirloom, which has been in the family for generations, it was extremely meaningful for the brooch to be recreated into an engagement ring and retained within the family. Unbeknown to the family, once the new engagement ring was created it was worth twice as much as the brooch’s original value.
Christopher Stoner, Managing Director, said:
“My team and I feel extremely privileged to have the honour of re-modelling our client’s precious jewellery which often holds such sentimental value. It’s wonderful to see the happiness it brings to our clients and their families.”
Remodelling jewellery certainly breathes new life into old or unwanted pieces, enhancing their desirability and wear-ability.
