Jewellery Remodelling - The What, Why and How

Despite being small in size, jewellery has the tremendous ability to hold such great significance and sentimental value to us. 

It holds memories, promises, achievement and emotion. It has the ability to transport us to moments spent with people we love, or to act as a reminder of parts of our lives that we hold dear. Wearing these precious keepsakes allows us to decorate our outer appearances, while identifying with these special memories on the inside. 

It is no wonder why we never remove some of these pieces. They stay attached to us as if they were a part of our very own skin, with us through every errand, workout, job and daily task. It comes as no surprise then, that over time they become damaged or worn through such frequent wear.

Sometimes, we may love a piece of jewellery for its sentimental value, but feel that its design doesn't complement our personal style or appearance in the way that we want it to.

In both of these cases, having your piece of jewellery remodelled or repaired can be particularly worthwhile!

What does jewellery remodelling involve?

At Class A jewellers we are able to completely re-design your special pieces of jewellery, utilising their precious stones and materials while handcrafting them to the exact specifications of your design.

Alternatively, a piece of jewellery may simply need a little rejuvenation. We can give your piece the ultimate makeover through resizing and rhodium plating your rings, renewing settings, soldering charms, repairing chains and more.

How is it done?

The first step is to bring the piece of jewellery into our showroom for an initial consult with our experienced jewellery designer. Here, you're able to discuss the customisation of your piece and bring your vision to life, while being soundly guided to ensure that it turns out exactly the way you want it.

It can be helpful to make use of our interactive ring bench for inspiration during this time. Our Ring Bench boasts over 370 unique designs, allowing you to try on and get excited about your ring's new look!

You'll be taken through the process and even shown exactly how your jewellery will look using our advanced 3D software.

You can then look forward to your second consult, which often involves being given a resin or silver model of your remodelled jewellery. This allows you to gain a feel for your piece's new design, and allows us to make any necessary adjustments and tweaks.

While in the safe hands of our team of expert jewellers, your piece will then be worked on with the utmost time and care. It is important to us that your jewellery not only is given a fresh, updated appearance, but still maintains the same sentimental feeling it has always given you.

After 4-6 weeks, you will then be able to collect your remodelled piece and fall in love with it all over again!

When to consider jewellery remodelling:

If you have any jewellery that:

  • You love but feel no longer matches your personal style
  • No longer fits
  • Is worn/damaged
  • You wish to have melted down and incorporated into one design using multiple pieces

We would love to discuss with you how we can turn these into your dream pieces of jewellery!
