Diamonds Don’t Spoil

by silvermarc on October 29, 2020

Last year I was commissioned to create a diamond ring using diamonds from an antique bracelet. (Link to that post here.

My custom creation was admired by another woman who wanted a similar but unique design for herself.  She too had antique jewelry she was no longer wearing, but loved the idea of reworking the diamonds. 

As we know, no two pieces of jewelry are alike, and even similar pieces look different on different people. 

I was honored to be able to create something based off of one of my own designs. 

We started at the beginning of 2020, just before the pandemic arrived. Even though I wasn’t able to produce her ring initially, due to safety concerns, we kept in touch on a regular basis. As soon as the fine jewelry market re-opened, I was able to pick up the casting I’d had made months earlier, and proceeded to have the diamonds set. 

In the following photo, you can see my initial diamond layout. 

From there, I had a custom model designed, and then the ring was cast in platinum. When I delivered it to her, she was so excited that all she kept saying was, “I hope it fits, I hope it fits, I hope it fits.”  And of course, it did, perfectly.

See how similar they are? And yet, they truly are two completely different rings.

TIP: I always say that “Diamonds Don’t Spoil.”   If you have diamonds in a piece of jewelry you are no longer enjoying, they are still valuable and can be recreated into jewelry that you will want to wear every day. Reach out to me with any questions.
