What To Do With An Unwanted Engagement Ring

We all know that life sometimes doesn't go to plan and our client came to see us with an unwanted engagement ring to ask advice about selling it.

"What else can I do with it, other than sell it?" she asked.

What a perfect question to pose to a jewellery designer who specialises in remodelling unwanted or unsuitable pieces of jewellery!

The original engagement ring was beautiful. It featured a central emerald-cut diamond and two smaller asscher-cut diamonds set in platinum.

Our client loved her ring, but knew she would and could never wear it again. After discussing ideas with Christopher, (including the passing mention of the fact that she loved the colour pink) she left us with her ring to come up with some initial designs.

Chris set to work and created some stunning designs to present her with a few days later. One was setting the central emerald cut diamond in a brand new platinum 4-claw setting and band, flanked either side by two bright pink trilliant-cut sapphires. The perfect right hand ring.

The two remaining small asscher-cut diamonds were then set as 4-claw 18ct white gold earrings.

The resulting two pieces of jewellery were both pieces our client was delighted with, as not only did it mark the start of a new beginning for her, but it also meant she could wear her beautiful diamonds again.
