When was the last time you went through the jewels you own and made decisions about what to keep, what to sell, and what to repurpose?
Nespoli Jewelers can transform these forgotten creations into something contemporary that you'll enjoy wearing. The same goes for family heirlooms and sentimental treasures- it is possible to preserve the special memories they represent and update them to suit your modern wardrobe.
Of course, this is a different kind of jewelry shopping, but its potential should not be underestimated. Repurposing old gems is a great way to breathe new life into old pieces and create something special.
Evaluate your gems: Before you start repurposing your gems, it's important to evaluate them to see if they are still in good condition. Look for any cracks, chips, or other damage that could affect their value or usability.
Determine their value: We offer appraisals that can help you to determine the value of your piece. This will help you make informed decisions about how to repurpose them.
Choose a design: Think about what kind of jewelry you want to create and choose a design that will showcase your gems in the best way possible. You can find inspiration online or work with us to create a custom design.
- Decide on the metal: The metal you choose for your new jewelry will impact its overall look and feel. Consider your personal style and the color of your gems when choosing the metal. Common choices include gold, silver, platinum, and rose gold.
- Choose a setting: The setting is the way in which the gem is attached to the jewelry piece. There are many different types of settings, including prong, bezel, and channel settings. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages, so it's important to choose the right one for your gems.
- We will work you! Repurposing gems for jewelry requires skill and expertise, so it's important to communicate what it is you envision so we can help to create the perfect piece. We can guide you through the design process and ensure that your gems are set securely.
