Wow! What an amazing experience working with you all to create a truly special piece of jewellery! Using inherited pieces and combining them together was a wonderful idea. I enjoyed each step of the way from the initial hand sketches, CAD visuals and finally the finished article. Every time I look at it I smile and remember the very special people who left me the jewellery to be able to do this. Lara D-J. Facebook review.

Remodelled Engagement Ring
-Previous customers of ours had recommended family members to come and see what we could do for them.
-They had an emerald and diamond engagement ring but wanted to remodel it into a new design. Something that was ‘chunkier’ than their original, we were to reuse the emerald, six diamonds and original material if possible.
-Martin sketched out a design in front of our clients, they liked the celtic design and left the engagement ring with us so we could provide them with an estimate.
-Once we had the go ahead, we ordered in a chunky 18ct gold band ring which would form the structure of the design.
-Martin worked on top of the band ring, sculpting and piercing a celtic design. He melted down the original ring mount and this was shaped into the emerald rub over style setting.
-The setting was soldered into place and the diamonds were then set, three diamonds per side, set into the centre of each celtic wave. A solid section was left at the base of the ring, this would make future sizing easier as the pattern wouldn’t need to be disrupted.
-After the ring was pre polished, Martin set the emerald into the rub over setting.
-A final polish completed the ring.
