He’s a pretty awesome guy.

original family rings, recreating signet ring, oroderey.com, making old new, winnipeg concierge jewellerHe’s a pretty awesome guy.  I know ’cause his wife’s whole body smiles when she talks about him.  They’ve moved lots because of his important work but the boys and her are ok with that ’cause he’s a pretty awesome guy.

That’s why she wanted an awesome memento to commemorate the next move – for his squad.  There were 2 rings that had been worn by his grandparents. You know, his family who helped shape him into that awesome guy.  She had those rings shaped into a ring with his squad’s logo.  Pretty sure he loves it. Pretty sure it will continue to be in the family for years to come.

Jewellery Reborn

I’m seeing a growing trend to combine the past with the present in order to create a memory that will be cherished into the future. The thought-full-ness of the jewellery that is shaped into a new treasure is the key to this exclusivity.wedding bands recreated by Oro de Rey, Gold of the King, Gary King custom design jewellery, concierge service

For these rings, a daughter used her father’s wedding band and we added the original diamonds from her mother’s engagement ring.

Another generation was included in this next unique ring. Grandmother and mothers’ bands were fused together to be worn by the daughter. Priceless.

Have you got some jewellery pieces tucked away, wrapped up in your draws or jewellery box?

They mean something to you – that’s why you’re holding on to them but they don’t quite suit your style to wear them?

Oro de Rey has got a fabulous idea for you!  We’ve developed “Tea Time & Talk”, an afternoon or evening hour of entertaining chatter with just you and your friends in mind. 

cleaned, polished, oro de rey customer service, winnipeg concierge jeweller

You invite a group of your friends over for tea and I’ll join you for an hour or so.   I’ll explain to you and your friends the things you might consider in a redesign. I’ll share my “Diamonds 101” with you.  We’ll talk about settings, gold content, where you got the jewellery and what it means to you.  (I love those stories – just read my blog and you’ll see)  You and your friends can ask me any questions you may have about your jewellery. (Isn’t it always easier to ask questions with your friends around you?)

I won’t sell you anything.  It will simply be tea time around the table with Gary King of Oro de Rey.

Why do I offer this service?

  • I believe jewellery should be loved, worn and appreciated.
  • I believe people make the best decisions when they are informed.
  • I believe customer service is paramount in my business.
  • I believe that’s how you build a trusting relationship.

Call us to set up a date.  I’m looking forward to meeting you and your friends!
