Here at The Goldsmithy we actively promote recycling of sentimental jewellery. If you have jewellery sitting in the back of your drawer that’s just not your style, our team are here to help you design and create a piece you will love to wear once again.
Family heirlooms being passed through generation to generation used to be a common occurrence, but times have changed and so have people’s styles! This is why it can also be a great idea to restyle your family heirloom – or even redesign it with that special person if you’re going to pass it onto another family member.
We can re-use the metal from your unworn but loved pieces to handcraft something bespoke – something you will cherish for many years to come just like we did for the Sterling Silver and 9ct Gold Bespoke Pocket Watch Pendant. Read the full story of how this piece came together.
“We found the Goldsmithy and Glenn created a beautiful ring from my Grandmother’s engagement ring. It was important to me to keep the rings authenticity and personal sentiment and Glenn was sensitive to this. Working on the ring was an added bonus, fascinating understanding of the process and level of work that goes into each piece of jewellery.
I absolutely love my ring and am already thinking about my next piece of jewellery! Thanks, Glenn”
“My engagement ring is twisted in the opposite direction to most so ‘off the shelf’ wedding rings weren’t a possibility for me. Then when my Grandma unexpectedly passed away earlier this year I knew I wanted to use her wedding ring to keep her part of the day. After reading about recycling old jewellery on the Internet, I started to become disheartened by the number of people who claimed it was impossible, so I was so relieved to discover The Goldsmithy. They are local and friendly, and it was amazing to be apart of the process. Now I have a ring that fits exactly to my engagement ring and my grandma will always be part of my big day – even though she never made it in person. Thank you.”
“We would like to thank Paul and Glenn for combining two unwearable rings into one beautiful sapphire and diamond ring that can now be worn. We enjoyed the experience of helping to file and polish the ring in your friendly workshop and it will be worn with great pride.”
