Before & After Projects

 

We can use your materials to design and make a ring, pendant, earrings, etc in a way that is more your style. Most common Before and After Projects:

  1. Redesign your old wedding set 
  2. Use your Family diamond to make a new engagement ring
  3. Turn old jewelry into a new style 
  4. Use materials as credits towards new purchase. 

Examples of recent projects: 

This client wanted us to use all her diamonds and her three rings to make one ring in white gold. This ring featured tapered rounds, baguettes, trillions and a marquise center.

Our client wanted to brighten up her engagement ring, We supplied round diamonds to make a halo for her beautiful pear shaped diamond. Eventually she plans to make a band with the marquise diamonds, set east and west, stay tuned ;)

Have no idea what style you want, but want a change....we got you covered. This two ring wedding set turned into a beautiful cluster when we had the idea to turn the marquise center east west and the small marquises north south. After that the rounds from her band just fell into place perfectly....

This client saw an estate ring in our inventory and decided she wanted the same antique style with her own diamonds. We love making antique designs because so many of the techniques we use are old world practices that were used to create the antique rings you know and love.
