From four diamonds to six by adding stones she found in her jewelry box. All SIX stones are slightly different in size and these settings beautifully camouflage that fact.
he originally wanted to upgrade the wedding rings for her, but the perfect solution was to resize-to-fit then replace two diamond with blue zircon.
from one creative being to another, a most collaborative venture. her strong sense design + my ability to listen brought us to the best idea. remounted wedding band
diamond from her original engagement ring combined with her circle pendant, designed to move freely. two becomes one to wear frequently (jewelry alteration)
diamond from dad’s band works perfectly in the Celtic pattern ring found via research on last name. platinum ring with the pattern of his irish clan
classic marquise solitaire engagement 14k white gold ring with a bow under the setting. repurposed family diamond.
instead of duplicating the ring we captured the essence the original piece using the diamonds where needed, replacing the rubies with new ones and – the extra special feature – we found a way to incorporate her original wedding band.
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.

Raimie, you are THE best! Your caring ways, your creativity and your ability to really LISTEN are rare and wonderful traits! I deeply appreciate how you have helped me with my heirloom jewelry. I look forward to working with you on more precious items, bringing them to today’s luster and updating older items.
Don’t know how you did it but there is so much movement in the design that the pin fairly dances! It has a slightly giddy, joyful quality. I couldn’t be more pleased. Thank you!
I am late in telling you how beautiful the ring that you created is and how happy we both are! You were just a dream to work with and I am so thankful that you were able to guide us through the process!
I was browsing the net on a Sunday evening and decided to take a peek at your site, which I haven’t visited since I have been visiting you so regularly. Much to my surprise and delight I found 2 of the pieces you created for me: the cabochon London blue topaz earrings and the terrific “double up” you did with my 2 pairs of earrings made of green-unfortunately-named stones. But the best part was being referenced as one of your “favorite gals.” I got such a kick out of seeing the lovely thi… Read more

Wow!! Wow, wow, wow!!! This is what I originally envisioned. I was so disappointed that we had to leave the settings as is, but I was disappointed for nothing. The settings don’t even appear stretched anymore. The top and bottom bands tie the design together and it no longer appears unfinished to me. The ring fits comfortably – not tight and not too loose. Maybe now I’ll wear it all the time (when not washing or cleaning) rather than just when I leave the house as I did before. I … Read more

I look forward to working with you again. Thank you!
