Old becomes new – Part 2

Winnipeg jewellery Oro de Rey, Gary King, design jewellery

She laid the 4 rings on her kitchen table for me to see.  The garnet ring with the swirl design were a gift from her parents more than 25 years ago.  The trio were gold and diamond rings that had been tucked in her jewellery box for 25 years.  They are precious but never worn and seldom seen.

We talked through a number of ideas and decided we wanted to use just the content of the 4 rings.  Beautiful stuff!  Gold, diamond & garnet.  Working together with our goldsmith we were able to create this gem of a pendant.  It won’t be sitting unworn in the jewellery box anymore.

One thought on “Old becomes new – Part 2

  1. Love this! It’s incredible to think about having a beautiful and memorable piece made out of other pieces that haven’t seen the light of day in years!
