So, I sent a bezel set antique OMC diamond I got Alex Parks a few years ago and an diamond eternity band I did not wear much any more to David Klass for a rework in late October. I got the video from David today. Oh My!

I gave DK a outline idea of how I wanted to work the two rings together into a new cluster. Classic on top, but a little funky on the bottom. No one will be surprised to hear David Klass did a great job execution wise.

It is a 1.92 yellowish OMC, VS surrounded by 1.65 carats of modern rounds, each 3 mm. The bezel is 18KYG and the rest is platinum, in a tri wire. These are from David’s video. I think it looks dreamy - like a lemon sorbet. I will post hand shots as soon as she arrives next week.

Happy Thanksgiving!

So beautiful! I love that you recycled little worn pieces into something TDF. Tell me, does DK also recycle the metal for you as well?

He does but back the scrap settings, assuming it’s a metal he uses and/or can sell, I assume. He applies that credit to your invoice. Could not be more simple. It’s such a great feature of working with him.

No
HI:

You are correct--he GETS it! It looks marvelous!

He reused the bezel and added millgrain?

cheers--Sharon

It’s a new bezel, as I went to 18 from 14k to really pop the color of the stone.

That ought to have been ‘does BUY back’. Sorry for the typo.

I love the look of a yellow diamond surrounded by substantial size white diamonds. What a great beautiful ring!

The ring arrived from DK and woozier! The finger coverage is great. It’s 3.55 carats total and I feel as if it shows.

David’s work is always so consistent and top notch. The prongs on the halo are tight and there’s no catching.

I’m a huge fan of reworking pieces. You get the thrill of new sparklies at a fraction of the cost of buying new piece!
