@stracci2000, I know I commented when you first posted this pendant but have to say it’s just perfect. How wonderful to take something you wouldn’t wear otherwise and make something so beautiful out of it!


I get a little thrill out of taking an old, unworn thing and making it wearable again.
It changes the way I look at old jewelry. I always think about how I can make something better!

My first two have been in the last year! Both diamonds are around 1 ct and one was from my original solitaire e-ring and the other from my mother's (which I had recut and set into a simple milgrain bezel pendant at first). Caysie van Bebber did the platinum reset of my mother's stone, and David Klass made an 18k yg engraved pendant for my daughter using my original diamond.

My mom gave me her ruby ring and the citrine ring my dad gifted her long ago, along with a marquis band my grandmother wore sometimes. These were not getting much wear from me, so I added two bands of my own gifted from my husband that I didn't wear anymore (1 pink sapphire, 1 yellow sapphire) and created a ring, necklace, and cluster earrings with all the stones. First photo is the before and mine, bottom two photos from the jeweler.
