Pendant repair: adding sterling discs adds heft and continued wearability when the metal is too thin to solder.
diamond from her original engagement ring combined with her circle pendant, designed to move freely. two becomes one to wear frequently (jewelry alteration)
what the shop has been doing is converting ring tops into pendants with chains. since she is not wearing rings these days, we repurposed an old cluster ring into a necklace.
she was the recipient of the family kitschy jewelry. the oversized gold charms with rubies, sapphires, emeralds and pearls big enough to wear each as a pendant. they don’t make charms like this anymore – intricate and handmade with moving parts.
necklace redesigned to bracelet and slide-style pendant. repurposed old jewelry into something she loves.
What they say …
Wow!!! Just wow!!! Received the necklace yesterday and I am beyond thrilled. The diamonds were dazzling before but placed together as they are now and they’re down right brilliant!! Thank you so much. Now I can wear this necklace to match the solitaire studs my husband got me when we first started dating. I now have an amazing set from two of the most important men in my life. I can’t thank you enough for your amazing work. I’ll be a repeat customer for sure.

Thank you so much for the beautiful emerald necklace you designed for our 50th wedding anniversary. It is a remarkable fine display of workmanship. I appreciated the energy you put into your design. Kilby was on “cloud nine” on the ride home. It was nice visiting with you again.
Thank you again for your beautiful work on my rings. They turned out more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. I am so thankful!

I LOVE my ring!!! It is absolutely beautiful and I can’t wait to show it off to everyone!! Thank you Ramie for your beautiful craftsmanship.
Life is very interesting sometimes. I went to get my hair cut today and a friend was so happy and excited about her “new” ring she couldn’t contain herself! As soon as she told me about her jeweler in Avon – I knew it was you! You made a special lady very happy. Of course I was wearing my Raime wedding band and my “new” necklace – always happy to share my story about my three rings. It was fun to share our Raimie jewelry stories. Six degrees of separation!
