Five Reasons to Redesign Jewelry
Many of us have old jewelry that has been collecting dust in our drawers for years. We love all the memories attached to it, but the style… not so much.
You could let it collect dust in the drawer, but there are better options! Maybe you don’t know of any jewelers in Indiana that redesign jewelry. We have the solution! Bring it to Bradley Gough Diamonds, we can give it the style upgrade that it deserves, while preserving the memories embedded in the diamonds and gemstones.
1. Preserving Memories with an Heirloom Jewelry Redesign
You recently came across a dusty jewelry box you had tucked away for safekeeping. Inside is your grandmother’s necklace you inherited years ago. Cherished memories begin to flood through your mind. Picking out the Christmas tree, family dinners, her sister’s art opening at the gallery... They bring a big smile to your face as your heart begins to warm. It’s big and vintage, perfect for your grandmother. Unfortunately, it’s not something you would wear.
The best part of heirloom jewelry redesign is that you maintain the memories that have been associated with that piece. This kind of jewelry has more meaning than something you could buy out of a case.
Heirloom jewelry conveys a deep sense of love and floods your mind with memories of the past. But if you want that nostalgia hit, you have to wear it and if you want to wear it, it should be something you enjoy. So get a jewelry redesign! It is still the same necklace your grandmother wore for 50 years, but now it’s got a little bit of your style added to it as well.
2. A Fresh Start
Sometimes you need a change in your life, a new perspective, a new road to march down. You may be starting a new job that doesn’t allow for your jewelry’s current style. That is such a terrible waste of a beautiful and rare gemstone that could have had many years of life ahead of it.
Instead, think about getting a jewelry redesign! Your jewelry is such an integral part of your life, it would be a shame to allow it to collect dust. Use this as an opportunity to create a new symbol for yourself. A fresh start, a new beginning! Turn it into a pendant or some earrings. Symbolize the movement from one phase of your life to another, brighter one!
3. Transform and Repair Broken Jewelry
Maybe you haven’t been wearing your piece is because it’s broken or lost a few stones over the years. It’s been at the bottom of your jewelry box, collecting dust and to be honest you’re not sure if you’d wear it even if the stones were repaired. Rather than fixing it, you could take the time to redesign jewelry into something you’ll love and want to wear even more!
4. I Want a Bigger Rock!
Do you want a bigger diamond? You can’t always afford the diamond you really want when you make your initial purchase. Upgrading to a bigger diamond allows your jewelry to shine even brighter. Whether you’re looking to add a larger center stone or upgrade your diamond stud earrings, we can help. Visit Fort Wayne’s favorite diamond experts at Bradley Gough Diamonds and let us help you pick out a bigger diamond that will catch everyone’s eye!
5. Just Because
Your jewelry doesn’t need to remain what it used to be, you can make it whatever you want it to be! YOU DESERVE IT. Don’t let anyone tell you that you don’t deserve nice things. You deserve to feel good about what you are wearing. You deserve to be respected and admired. You deserve to decorate yourself like a living, breathing work of art. Because you are!
Ask us about redesigning gold jewelry with small diamonds or let us show you what that ring you haven’t worn for a few years can become. Diamonds and gemstones deserve to sparkle in the sun, restyle your jewelry and create your new favorite treasure.
How Jewelry Redesign Works
Collaboration & inspiration
Start with a FREE consultation with one of our in-house jewelry designers. Bring your ideas, a sketch, or a mood board to help him get an idea of what you’re looking for. They’ll take a look at the piece (or pieces to combine) and see what is possible to help you create what you desire! Our goal is to guide you on every step of the journey to make your jewelry redesign a reality.
Wax to the max!
The plan is there, now it’s time to execute it! First, a 3D wax model will be molded based on the brainstorm session you had with the jeweler. It helps to have a physical object for you to try to get an idea of what adjustments need to be made. Any feedback you give will be put into the next ideation.
Cast, set, sand, gleam!
When the wax model has reached your desired ideation, we’ll send it to the workshop to be cast. Your stones will be set, then your new creation will be sanded and polished to perfection. At long last, you have a jewelry redesign and it is what dreams are made of! You will introduce your new treasure to the world, eyes transfixed on the sparkle and shine.
