Have you Inherited treasure, that’s not quite your style?
LMDG has worked handled antique jewellery for a number or years and dealt with many estate collections. Before discussing the re-modeling of any inherited piece will give a clear evaluation as to the Antique value or your heirloom.
We take the history of the inherited jewellery and bring the memory into modern, wearable pieces that can be enjoyed for your generation.
Remodeling old jewellery takes skill and an experienced goldsmith. LMDG will be able to sit and discuss how it can be re-imagined for you.
Jewellery is an expression of you and your story. As with every journey, things sometimes change along the way.
We love to sit down, discuss what you have and create a new lease of life that will transform jewellery into something that will never be forgotten.
We can take all your existing precious metal and re-cycle it into a bespoke piece of jewellery. re-alloying the gold if needed. One of the invaluable services we offer is to be able to match lost or broken stones.
You don’t have to just stick to the materials that you start with. A new piece can be greatly enhanced by adding extra gems, giving extra dynamism to a design. Beautiful gems can have a completely new piece created around them. We have transformed unwanted jewellery into extraordinary, statement pieces, by using the stones in a more sympathetic or spectacular way.
Our design experience and understanding of ‘wear-ability’ will help you to achieve fantastic results.
Re-styling jewellery is a great way to recycle pieces which may have gone past the point of feasible restoration. In these cases, duplicate copies are possible.
When restyling you have the option of changing the metal, from say, white gold to yellow gold. it does of course have to be new metal to do this, however, the cost of the new metal can be off set against the value of the old metal.
Semi precious or precious gemstones from the original jewellery can be Re-polished or we can re-cut old stones that have been loved to within an inch of their life.
This beautiful Sapphire and Diamond ring was taken apart and reset. We designed a large statement ring, introducing these long baguette diamonds either side. It was a stunning piece of jewellery.
This blue sapphire and diamond ring, was re-designed from 7 varying sized brilliant diamonds from an old ring.
Our client wanted a statement piece, that needed to be very pretty whilst also having the WOW factor.
With our guidance, she chose a baby-pink, heart shaped sapphire, around which, we incorporated her old diamonds. We added a few extra stones to complete the design and embellished the shoulders with more tiny diamonds.
A perfect re-model using old jewellery.
