Over the years you have generated quite a jewelry collection, but most of your jewelry now looks stale or is not your style. Most of pieces of your collection just sit unused in a box, forgotten and ignored. Some of the jewelry is yours, some is inherited, and some may be from a divorce. This forgotten old jewelry just sits in a box unused.
You can sell it for scrap. Many people do. We buy old jewelry just like this all the time. But, I have a better idea for you. Transform your old jewelry. That is the exciting positive thing to do with the all the unused jewelry sitting locked up and hidden in drawers.
Transform your old jewelry into some new design that reflects the vision you have today.
Quite often people inherit jewelry from their parents. The inherited jewelry is most likely not in the style that you like. This inherited jewelry is an ideal candidate for a makeover. Older jewelry can often be made of excellent quality materials, and the only thing holding it back is the design. Simple changes can make some of these older jewelry pieces really stand out.
Divorce is another reason for jewelry redesign. Engagement rings and wedding rings can be refashioned into new pieces. Add or change the stone in the jewelry, Add a pattern or some ornamentation to the ring. There are many different ways to transform the old jewelry in to the new jewelry.
This kind of jewelry makeover is not just a great way to renovate your jewelry collection, but a great way to create value. When you supply the raw materials, you save a lot of money. I’ve had people come into my studio with two to tree thousand dollars worth of jewelry and walk our with a new piece of jewelry worth over twenty thousand dollars. When you put in the materials of your old jewelry you can save and be the proud owner of a unique one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry.
Over the years I have had many people come into my jewelry studio with old jewelry that we have used in creating a new and vibrant piece of jewelry.
