How to Redesign Your Old Jewelry

Posted on April 01 2023

Your jewelry isn’t just a beautiful accessory to wear. It’s a sentimental token that holds onto the special memories it creates. If you have a collection of jewelry that has been handed down to you, it may be hard to give it up for something new. However, redesigning your old treasures will bring fresh life to its style without sacrificing the love, care and meaning each piece holds. Whether it’s jewelry from your grandmother or something bought on a whim, there are plenty of ways to renew old pieces through redesign. At Lasker, we have a team dedicated to helping you learn how to redesign your old jewelry and create a custom design you’ll love for years to come. Let’s look at how you can get started.

Create a Vision for Your Jewelry

The first step in redesigning old jewelry is to create a vision for what you want it to become. Consider the things you love most about your collection like what type of metals and gemstones you are drawn to. Think about the style, size, shape and color of your design. This will guide you to the dazzling redesign of your rings. Then, find pre-existing pieces that match your vision. Old photos, sketches you’ve made yourself or even a strong description of your desires will inspire a jewelry designer to create a masterpiece you’ll love. You can also consult with friends or family members who may have some creative suggestions.

Meet with a Designer 

Once you have an idea of what you would like your redesigned piece to look like, it’s time to meet with a jewelry designer who can turn your vision into a reality. At Lasker Jewelers, we have a talented team of artisanal creators who’ll take your ideas into consideration when building your custom design. Simply make an appointment for a consultation, bring in the jewelry you’d like to redesign, any materials that capture your vision and we’ll work with you every step of the way to bring your dreams to life.
