Precious Tips for Remodeling Old Jewelry

Precious Tips for Remodeling Old Jewelry

Remodeling jewelry is a simple solution that enables you to give new life to old jewelry pieces. Do not let your precious items sit in your jewelry box, turn them into something you will want to wear every day! Remodeling can take several forms: if you have a strong emotional attachment to it, your jewelry piece can simply be restored. That way, we keep part of the structure and incorporate it into a new piece of jewelry but with a different vocation; a brooch can become a beautiful pendant or a ring for example.

If the jewel does not correspond to your taste, we can remove the stones and redesign a new model altogether. We can create one or several pieces that meet your desire while utilizing your existing diamonds or precious stones. The metal can also be reused and recycled which reduces waste and the overall environmental impact. Using sophisticated 3D modelling software, Laferrière & Brixi Diamantaires will be able to assist and guide you through all the steps of custom manufacturing.
