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!

Commission: Recycled Gold Peridot Earrings

These earrings are a follow up from a previous commission to re-purpose some old gold rings into a new wedding band. The gold was melted down and formed into 2mm square wire with plenty to make a wedding ring and have some leftover for a future project.

So it brought a smile to my face to hear from Hannah again about using the rest of her gold for her mum’s birthday this summer! 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

Commission: Silver & Gold Diamond Ring

Silver & Gold Diamond Ring

This ring was a recent (ish) commission to resize and update an existing silver and gold ring. The original – which I neglected to take a photo of – was a silver band with a small plain gold section. Simple and elegant. The ring however was now too small and so to resize it, I carefully cut the gold section straight down the middle and added a gold stone setting with a flush set white diamond. Really pleased with the final piece and it’s now got a new lease of life being worn again! Continue reading Commission: Silver & Gold Diamond Ring

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.
