Before and After

THE REDESIGN CHALLENGE:

Tatyana came to us with some gold jewelry, a ruby ring, and some diamond earrings from her grandmother. Tatyana was very close with her grandmother and wanted to honor her jewelry in a beautiful design. 

Because Tatyana is a jewelry designer herself she was able to sketch her own design which we were able to fully realize as a finished piece that she could wear every day to remind her of her grandmother.

THE REDESIGN PROCESS:

Tatyana had already done some of the work for us by making her own custom design! We were able to receive her basic layout files and simple model. We had to do some slight tweaking in order to make sure the ring could be manufactured. 

Once the designs were finished we were able to send in her gold jewelry to be recast and reused to create this statement signet ring with the bezel setting. 

THE REDESIGN REVEAL:

Tatyana loved her new custom piece. It looked exactly like she had designed it with her own style in mind as well as creating a fitting tribute to her grandmother.
