Bespoke Redesign Tanzanite Brooch to Tanzanite Ring
Pieces brought by Client: Tanzanites Brooch, Gold Bangles and Chain, 22ct Chunky Wedding Ring
Ring Material used: Grandmother's 22ct White Gold Wedding Ring
Our Customer brought a beautiful white gold Tanzanite Brooch with the thought of making it into a ring. He also brought a bag of other jewellery items which he inherited to possibly melt in to use for the new ring.
One of the items was a his mother's wedding ring. We don't like to melt in wedding rings as they carry a huge amount of family history and meaning, we worked out a way to preserve it. We where able to mount the graduating sized Sapphires by adapting the ring.
- Adaption, skimming and preparation of your mum's wedding ring (less chunky and with flatter profile)
- Unsetting 12 Sapphires from brooch
- Setting 12 Sapphires into ring (similar setting style as brooch)
- Rhodium plate
