Our Custom Jewelry Design: Replicating Sentimental Jewelry Pieces

Our Custom Jewelry Design: Replicating Sentimental Jewelry Pieces

One of our favorite processes is working with customer’s sentimental pieces. Whether it’s redesigning a beautiful ring that was Grandma’s favorite or combining family wedding rings that have been passed down from generation to generation in order to create a brand new piece, we take so much pride and care in the process of designing new custom jewelry from meaningful pieces.

One of our customers came in recently with a family heirloom - a stunning retro diamond setting and 14kt yellow gold ring that belonged to his father. We took it old school with this one! Instead of using the typical CAD (computer-aided design) method, we hand carved an exact replica out of wax. This is a more time consuming method, but nothing beats carving the wax and building the piece of jewelry oneself completely from scratch!

We are over the moon with how this replication turned out. It’s exciting to not only be entrusted with our customer’s precious heirlooms, but to also have the opportunity to create beautiful, memorable custom pieces from scratch. It’s a wonderful feeling to own and wear a piece of custom jewelry that is truly one-of-a-kind!

Replicating sentimental pieces of jewelry or family heirlooms is a great way to share the love. If a customer's mom has a stunning garnet ring that meant the world to her, we can replicate the piece so that each daughter has her very own version.
