Classic Mounting Reset Makeover
This new client had broken the worn out, thin shank of her original engagement ring several years ago and was very concerned about finding and trusting a new jeweler to do the repair. In this first time collaboration with trusted jeweler, Diamonds On The Key, the idea of not just a repair to the old ring, but a full makeover to update and modernize her ring, was discussed and reviewed with various options presented. After 2 kids and 20 years of marriage, the client decided a complete new makeover was long overdue and proceeded! A new, classic 3 stone setting was custom cast to fit her center diamond of 2 carats and two matching half carat diamonds were procured, to create the new timeless design.
Having a sentimental attachment to the original engagement ring, the old mounting was cut, bent, steam cleaned, polished, with posts and backings added, to transformed the mounting into a into a pair of beautiful everyday earrings! Final new rhodium finish restored the original bright white luster.
The client’s original wedding band also received restoration with steam cleaning, polishing and bright white rhodium plating, to match the new color and finish of the engagement ring. The original curved design of the band was maintained and it fit beautifully next to the new engagement ring! The client is now loving all 3 of her refreshed pieces of jewelry and so thrilled to have made the leap of faith and commit to the makeover process!
