Commission: Silver Ruby Ring

Recycled sterling silver ruby ring

It was a delight to be given the opportunity to re-set this stunning ruby! Originally set in a pendant, it had been lost and replaced with another ruby pendant…and then – as is the way of these things – found again! So rather than have two ruby pendants, my customer decided to have it transformed into a ring.

Remodelled into a simple recycled sterling silver ring, it has a low profile for everyday wear but without losing any of the impact. It’s made a nice change for me to set some large stones recently as usually I tend towards the teeny tiny!

I was told her mum loved green which couldn’t be more perfect as the combination of yellow gold and green gemstones is stunning. Continue reading Commission: Recycled Gold Peridot Earrings

18ct Recycled White Gold Wishbone Shaped Wedding Band

It was lovely to see this diamond ring back on my bench for a clean and polish as well as matching it to a bespoke shaped wedding band. The ring had worn very well and has clearly been looked after as cleaning and polishing was a quick job!

I originally made the diamond ring quite some time ago from 18ct Fairtrade white gold with an ethically sourced large white diamond. Like so many engagement ring, the diamond sits wider than the band and so required a wedding band specially shaped to fit. Following a consultation with Continue reading Commission: Wishbone Shaped 18ct White Gold Wedding Band

Remodelling Commission: Recycled Gold Diamond Ring

Bespoke Recycled Yellow Gold Diamond Ring by Victoria Jarman Jewellery

This ring was commissioned by a customer looking for some old gold and diamond rings to be remodelled into something she could wear everyday for her 25th wedding anniversary. It was important to Cat to keep the sentimental value of the old rings and so I removed the diamonds and then her gold was refined and formed into new sheet metal for the new ring, with a little extra recycled gold added to make up the weight.
