REDESIGN & REMODELLING

Remodelling inherited or vintage jewellery can be an incredibly rewarding process, breathing new life into rarely-worn or outdated pieces of jewellery. I approach the redesign process as a real collaboration between myself as a designer and my clients, working together to create news designs from sentimental heirlooms, which are unique to the wearer.

Sapphire and Diamond Heirloom Redesign

KATE & KYLE

Kate and Kyle came to me with her Grandmother's sapphire and diamonds engagement ring as our inspiration. Kate and her grandmother are very close, and she wanted to honour her by wearing a modern version of her original sapphire and diamond halo ring.

We selected a stunning new ethically sourced oval sapphire as the centre piece for Kate's ring, and used all of the original heirloom diamonds in the halo.

Heirloom Cocktail ring redesign

SARAH & ALIX

This dramatic piece was designed to breathe new life into an old handmade platinum and gold ring from France, which Alix inherited.

Alix's daughter, Sarah, approached me to design a new cocktail ring for her mother to represent her passionate, bright personality. The design brief: a show-stopping cocktail ring with bright, confident colours to bring joy to the wearer.

SARAH & ALIX

This original piece was beautifully handcrafted in platinum and 14ct gold, but over the years the original stones were removed and repurposed for another piece. After being left empty for a number of years, Alix wanted to give this beautiful ring a new lease of life.

As is often the case with antique pieces, this ring was in need of a few repairs to prepare it for wear, and to make sure the new stones fit snugly into the settings.

SARAH & ALIX

Living in France, Alix is a vibrant and energetic person, and she really wanted this new ring to represent her personal style and bright outlook on life. I was tasked with sourcing a playful selection of coloured stones, and presented a few options which were inspired by the colourful summer sunsets over the sea in southern France.

With unique, beautifully-made pieces like this, I love to retain some of the unique features in the original design. I am always honoured to work on, and give handmade pieces like this, a new lease of life for my clients.

Antique Rose Cut Diamond Pendant Redesign

FRANCES

Frances came to me with an antique Georgian pendant she discovered hidden away in a shop window, which she loved but had never worn and didn't suit her style. Set with rose cut diamonds, we redesigned this antique pendant into a pair of cluster drop earrings.

Frances requested dramatic drop earrings she could wear on the red carpet, and we landed on these incredible flowing earrings with rose cut antique diamonds, pear emeralds and Tahitian grey pearls in white gold.

Frances, with an exquisite eye for detail, spotted this antique (likely Georgian) pendant in a shop window and could not leave it behind. After a few years of being locked in a safe, Frances decided to redesign these stunning rose cut diamonds into a pair of unique earrings.

TRILOGY DIAMOND RING Redeisgn

SUSAN

Susan wanted to redesign a rarely-worn trilogy diamond ring into one of my favourite designs, the Tangle Seaweed Ring. With her original diamonds she preferred white metal so as not to compromise their colour, and platinum was the ideal choice for this design.

Inspired by ocean currents and flowing tides, the platinum seaweed fronds delicately encapsulate the diamonds in this unique take on a Clio Saskia classic.
