Wondering what to do with old or broken family jewelry? Freshen it up with a custom redesign.
Indy Facets client Nancy Foerster has two heirloom rings with beautiful stones. The settings are a bit out of date, so she decides to make an appointment with Indy Facets for advice about how to modernize them and create something she’d love wearing.
“Shaun was very helpful when I came in to see him about updating a couple rings,” Nancy says in her five-star review. “He helped me come up with a beautiful design, offered suggestions, and I am so thrilled with the finished product. It turned out beautiful!”
Take a look at the breathtaking after photos of Nancy’s new and gorgeous ring. She and custom jeweler extraordinaire Shaun Goodyear merge the two rings into one, carefully custom-designed by the team at Indy Facets. This is a perfect example of what you can do with family jewelry you inherit … and aren’t crazy about.
Transform Your Estate Jewelry
If you have heirloom jewelry that’s in need of some TLC, you have several options at Indy Facets for transforming it into the jewelry of your dreams.
- Light Cleaning and Repair. Maybe it’s a piece of jewelry that just needs some cleaning and polishing to bring it back to its shining glory. Or maybe it has a little damage to the metal. These imperfections can easily be fixed with a light cleaning or small repair.
- Professional Restoration. If your jewelry is very old, damaged or has missing stones, it may need a professional restoration. Our experts have rich backgrounds in the history and design of jewelry, so they’ll know exactly how to restore the piece back to its original state.
- Authentic Appraisal. Find out what the jewelry is worth. You can consider selling it and using the cash to buy something you’d really love.
- Custom Jewelry Design. If the piece is too far gone – or if you just prefer to reshape it into something new – custom design is an excellent option. Take precious stones that have been in your family for generations and redesign them into something new that will delight generations to come.
Why Choose Custom Design?
Sometimes it can be hard to choose between restoring a piece of jewelry to its original condition or updating it with a custom design. Here are some things to consider.
Condition. Sometimes jewelry has hidden damage or has suffered through a poor restoration in the past. Depending on its condition, a custom redesign may be a better way to preserve the integrity and meaning of the piece.
Taste. Let’s face it. Some jewelry is just too old-fashioned for you to feel comfortable wearing today. It’s such a shame to keep these pieces hidden away in your jewelry box! A custom redesign updates a tired piece of jewelry so you can feel proud to wear it.
Creativity. Are you the type of person who loves to let their creativity run free? Custom jewelry design is a great match for you. Bring in an old piece of jewelry and we’ll work with your design ideas to create a new masterpiece for you to treasure forever.
