We often create wonderful pieces of jewellery for our customers by either adapting and updating family heirlooms, or using the metal and diamonds from older jewellery or jewellery passed down from generations to create unique pieces.
Recently a longstanding customer of ours came to us enquiring about using some of the jewellery her mother left her after passing away 18 months ago. We had previously remodelled her mother’s engagement ring for her to wear and she was extremely happy with the results. Using more of her mother’s yellow gold jewellery, she wanted to have a special item of jewellery made for her husband. After gathering ideas for the design and with a clear vision for creating a Celtic design we set to, turning her dream into reality.
We faced a challenge in layering the white gold over the yellow gold to form a lattice feature synonymous with Celtic jewellery, however we were able to overcome this and create exactly what our customer had envisaged.
The Celtic design is special to the family, and our customer and her husband are delighted with the finished ring. The couple have other pieces left which they will eventually pass down to their sons, so that all the jewellery is kept in the family....
