Hi Everyone!
I am usually very shy about doing reveals of my jewlrey but I had to share my latest creation with you all~~~ I am so excited!
First the story:

About 15 years ago my husband gave me this YG 14kt gold tennis bracelet. It had 46 G/H-VS diamonds. I loved it when I got it but as the years passed I never wore it. After seeing a friend's diamond bangle bracelet a year ago I decided I needed one also! :)

In the meantime I had worked with Luann on a few projects at ID Jewlery. I met her and Yekutiel in person while on a trip to NY not long ago. I decided to ask them to make me a diamond bangle bracelet using my diamonds from my exsisting tennis bracelet. I wanted white gold and I knew I wanted the dimensions to be about the size of my WG Cartier Love bracelt. I drew exact sizing patterns (oval) and Luann and I talked about design, clasps, etc. ID Jewelry made a custom bracelet to fit my diamonds and size requests. I purchased 15 more diamonds (1.38ctw) from Luann to match my exsisting stones. I am in love with the final product. I am so excited that I used the diamonds from a gift from my husband and now it is updated to a bracelet I can wear everyday..... I cannot say enough about ID Jewelry. They are trustworthy and dependable. On top of that they do beautiful work at a great price. Here are the before and after of my new 5.52 ctw diamond bangle bracelet!

Thank you everyone for your kind words. I am so happy I found PRICESCOPE because it gave me the confidence to do a "makeover" like this one. Two years ago before finding PS I would have never thought to take a perfectly fine YG bracelet and remake it (even though I had not worn this for at least 8 years!) I just think PS educates jewelry lovers to a higher level. I am forever grateful for the knowledge gained here. And the good news is that I know I still have ALOT to learn!

I do love my new diamond bangle and promise to post more photos tomorrow! Had to go to a dinner tonight and loved wearing my new/old diamond bangle bracelet. I guess it is not totally new......... but it sure was fun wearing it tonight! :)

Whoa! Major improvement. I wouldn't have worn the tennis bracelet either. Thanks for showing the clasp, that was my next question. I like how the diamonds wrap right around the back! My bracelets always face with clasp up not matter what I do, so no problemo with your new blingie.
