Bringing New Life to an Old Piece

Whether it was a bad gift, inherited jewelry, or something you bought for yourself ten years ago that makes you wonder what the 2008 you were thinking, we feel you. That doesn’t mean your jewelry needs to go to waste! It is possible to redesign jewelry into something that you feel great flaunting, and not shamefully hide away in your jewelry box.

One of the best options for giving jewelry new life is to have a custom piece of jewelry created especially for you.

That long strand of pearls you inherited can be converted into multiple bracelets, a layered choker or even an entire suite of earrings, ring, pendant and bracelet. We all have some pieces that we just no longer want but that doesn’t mean you can’t have the diamonds and gemstones reset into individual pieces that you can give to your children or grandchildren as a gift that they will cherish for years.

Here at Metalmark Fine Jewelry, we love working with you to bring new life to an old favorite. The process is easy, and so fun!

Bring in what you have! That necklace you no longer wear? Your grandma’s old ring that’s just not your style? Bring it all in. One of our talented custom specialists will go through everything with you and talk about your options.

This photo below shows the mountings from a recent “before” that one of our custom specialists worked with.

Walk around the shop & see what you’re drawn to in our cases. Show us your Pinterest board or Instagram photos you’ve saved. We’d love to help you determine what the best options are for your new piece.


We will work with you on concept and style and sketch out a design that you love. Next, that design will be drawn up in our CAD program where it will really come to life. We will work through this process until we settle on an amazing piece you’ll love to wear! Next, the piece will be created in our Lohi studio.

Shown below is a series of CAD renderings drawn up to make sure that you love everything about your piece before it is produced.

Shown below is the final product. Every diamond in this stack was taken from another piece of inherited jewelry and brought to life in a beautifully modern way.
