Many people choose to design their own rings by using a stone from a piece of old jewelry or perhaps using a piece of old jewelry to put a new stone in.
Another way people use old jewelry to design a new ring is to take the metal from the old jewelry and have it melted and formed into a new piece of jewelry. Jewelers can use the original stone in it to make a new piece of jewelry that may be a replica of the old, just new! Which option is right for you? Speak to your jeweler to see what he or she has to offer for making old jewelry new again.
