Inherited jewellery made into stacking ring set

Large opal, diamond, gold and silver inherited jewellery for remodelling

Catriona got in touch after her sister had already had a ring designed by myself.

Catriona had a large amount of handed down jewellery that had been sitting in the jewellery box gathering dust. She decide that now was the time to have it remade and Remodelled into something she would wear and treasure.

Catriona loved the idea of versatility.

We decided to use the larger of the two opals and four of the diamonds along with the gold.

My client wanted to incorporate the leaf from my Entwined collection and be able to wear the opal as a ‘set’ or on its own. 

This was a really exciting opportunity to create a true master piece. 

After producing several designs Catriona chose one she absolutely loved.

Once all the stone were removed from the jewellery the melting, milling and remodelling of the gold could begin.

Some of the rings have been made in silver to add contrast when the pieces are worn all together. 

The finished rings have so many different ways of being worn. Catriona loves the fact she can pick and choose how her rings can be worn.

I think you will agree when I say ‘it is a truly unique piece of jewellery’.
