Don't Give Up On Your Old Jewellery Just Yet...Pt 2

Ace Jewellery bespoke jewellery commissions

We would love to re-purpose it for you! 

In our first blog in this series, we showed you how you can semi-set ring mounts to create a completely different looking ring. In this next blog we're going to share with you some more ideas on how you can re-purpose your old jewellery, even if you think it might be a lost cause! 


Pendant Mounts

We mentioned solitaires in our first blog in this series Don't Give Up On Your Old Jewellery Just Yet...Pt 1. This is how we helped our customer fall in love again with her solitaire.

Our customer came in with a diamond pendant that she wanted making into something a little more interesting. We supplied the fitting and created a brand new heart shaped pendant for her, with her original diamond taking centre stage. We loved how we were able to help her turn her simple solitaire into a high-end looking piece of jewellery, and so we named her new pendant The "Ace of Diamonds"!

Add texture to your jewellery metal

Another great way to re-purpose your jewellery is to add some style, flair or a unique touch to an existing piece.

One of our customers wanted something unique as a token of their love to their partner. Their Father's silver wedding ring was something they wanted to be included in their nuptuals in some way. As they were both nature lovers, adding a kind of bark effect to their plain ring was a great way to remember their Dad. 

We really loved creating this piece, demonstrating that there are so many different effects that can be achieved with different metals. Simple, yet especially sentimental, they were over the moon with the result!

Hi again Ace, I enjoyed reading this blog too, I really like what you did what that man's wedding ring. My partner might like it, as he's into textures and stuff. Thanks for showing me how much I can do to change up my jewellery, Tania :)

Really enjoy reading your blogs Ace. I really like how you show people that your jewellery doesn't have to be thrown out just because you don't wear it anymore.


Great read Ace! I think living sustainably is an important part of our culture these days, and recycling your jewellery is a great way to take part in that. It's accessible to everyone as well, as it's not as expensive as buying from new.
Thanks for caring about the planet!


Hi Tania

Hi Zainah

Thank you for leaving a comment, and we're so glad you enjoy reading our blog! You're so right; we love showing people how they can keep wearing their jewellery, so we're glad you enjoyed reading.


Hi Elizabeth

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on sustainability, which we as Jewellers are very passionate about. there are so many ways we can all do our bit for the environment, and we see showing people how to upcycle, recycle or re-wear their jewellery as us doing our bit for the planet.


Good read Ace, I came up the stairs to your shop a few days ago, and I got to see first hand how you look after your customers. I wanted a ring making and you gave me so much help with it. When I'm finished with this one I'll know where to come to change it into something new, thanks

Hi Brandon

Thank you for your lovely comments, and we're so glad the trip up the stairs was worth it! We look forward to welcoming you again soon, Ace
