white gold ring has side baguettes and center is a round brilliant cut diamond

repair one ring and combine two more

she found me online. we are local to each other, so she was able to come into my shop in person with a small repair to start. As we began to chat, she told me about a bag of jewelry sitting in her jewel box. aha – that is right in my wheelhouse – “bring it all in!” I said.

in her lot of jewelry was

  1. her original engagement ring not fitting her finger any longer
  2. her wedding band, also needing to be resized
  3. a ring that had a diamond center that was long gone

first of all, we decided the wedding band resize was a “must do.”

she also liked my idea to take her brilliant cut diamond from her original engagement ring and set it into ring #3 which was also an engagement-style ring. for that i used a 4-prong wire basket in a style we both liked.

she is a scientist and works outdoors, and she uses her hands a lot. i did not want the center stone to be too high, and as her wedding band is a simple barrel style, this fancier ring worked really well design-wise. (Unfortunately, I don’t have a photo of the two rings – they work really well together.) the engagement-style ring was assembled, refinished and looks fabulous!

her husband is very happy. she is once again wearing her wedding band (resized) plus her original engagement diamond in a ring he purchased for her several years ago.
