Remodelling Your Old Jewellery
Remodelling is a great way to take unworn heirloom jewellery and turn it into something you can wear again. Whether it is something you have inherited that isn't your style or something that is broken and has been sat in your jewellery box for years, Zoë can work with you to design and create a brand new piece of jewellery that suit your style whilst still retaining the sentimentality of the original piece.
In most cases Zoë can re-use gemstones and precious metals, combined with new stones and metal if necessary.
Prices for remodelling start from £175 for a basic melt and remake using your old gold, like a wedding band for instance. Work involving gemstones and more complex techniques will be wholly dependent on the final design.

This re-design project was for two heirloom rings that my client had inherited from her Grandmother. She wanted the two sapphires set into earrings and the seven rubies set onto a single ring using the gold from both rings.
We added some extra silver granules to add depth and contrast to create this bespoke organic ring.
"The result was better than I’d ever imagined. It’s just stunning. I loved the progress pics I received throughout the process showing me its journey so I knew how it was transforming. It certainly is a one-off unique piece that I now wear proudly all the time, it has a whole new life and gets compliments everywhere I go and most importantly I think my Grandma would love it, she would be so pleased it is now something beautiful worn every day." - JD
My client asked me to restore their heirloom engagement ring as it had become very worn and misshapen over the years. The setting had previously been replaced in white gold but she had never been truly happy with it.
After taking the ring apart I added a small amount of new gold to the original gold and created a new band with a yellow gold setting. I also gave her wedding ring a clean and polish to match. My client was over the moon with the result!
"Just a note to let you know that I am so very pleased with the transformation of my engagement ring. It looks just as perfect as it did 40 years ago. It's simply beautiful.
Thank you for your care, attention to detail and beautiful craftsmanship. The two rings together fit perfectly.I absolutely love it " - RN
My client wanted to combine the gold from three sentimental rings to create one special ring for her son's 18th Birthday.
We went for a simple chunky band with a single twist detail. Inside the band was hand stamped with her son's initials and the date of his special birthday.
