Redesigned Sapphire and Diamond Old Fashioned Ring
Remodelled Ring using unworn gold by Hampshire Jewellery Designer
When Sally came to me she had an old style oval sapphire and diamond cluster ring.
The ring itself was not to my clients taste but she loved and wanted to keep the blue sapphire and wondered if I could use the stone in a new design incorporating the tiny diamonds too.
Sally also had some unused ‘bits’ of gold so these could be added into the ‘melt’. This would mean that I wouldn’t have to add as much gold to the new design bringing the price down but also using up all the scrap gold in Sally’s jewellery box.

The ring needed to be chunky as it was to sit next to another of Sally’s favourite rings. My client wanted a timeless piece with would show off this beautiful large oval sapphire.
After showing Sally my ideas and designs she was able to choose her perfect design.
I think the sapphire looks stunning set into yellow gold. The tiny diamonds that once surrounded the sapphire have now been set down into the shoulders of the ring as if they have been sprinkled there, while the hammered finish catches the light giving this ring a natural feel.
