Jewelry can go out of style. Sometimes you might lose a match to your favorite earrings and be left with just one. Sometimes you want to give a gift, but don’t want to break the bank doing it. There are several ways to repurpose jewelry and create a genuinely unique piece that you or a loved one can rock like a true gem lover.
Meet Up With A Pro
When you want to turn a few pieces into one, you should check out a local gemologist or jeweler. Working with a gemologist or jeweler to create genuinely unique pieces of jewelry can be a great experience. Just be honest. Tell them what you want and what you want to spend. They will help you stay in your price range and develop a piece you love or someone you love will equally love.
So, what can you make?
Pendants That Are Dreamy
You can combine a diamond earring with a solid gem earring like a ruby or emerald to make a pendant. Use diamonds to create a halo effect around a gem to make it really stand out. Of course, that’s not the only thing you can do with gems.
Something Old Into Something New
Engagement rings are super special and if you have some of your Mom’s or Grandmother’s old jewelry - why not design an heirloom to say ‘I love you’. Check out different set rings and talk about how to turn your boring gems into something extravagant.
Make A Statement
Gems are a great way to make a statement. You can re-gift old pieces by turning a few into one bold brooch for Mom. Make your bestie a pair of earrings with something the two of you used to wear all of the time. Or just make yourself something new by using something you don’t love anymore to create something you adore.
