Remodelling Inherited Gold into Precious Heirlooms
Many of our customers have inherited gold jewellery from their parents, grandparents and family members that they have never worn. This was certainly the case for Susan, who brought us a selection of 18ct yellow gold earrings, rings and chains that were sitting unloved in the back of her jewellery box.
Instead of ignoring them, Susan wished to remodel the gold into two lovely 18ct yellow gold bracelets to pass down to her granddaughters. Here at Robert Bicknell Fine Jewellery, we always jump at the chance of creating modern heirlooms that will be enjoyed for generations to come.
While we reworked the gold, our bespoke design team were able to work with Susan to design the two bangles. We opted for two distinct bangle styles, each demonstrating different goldsmithing techniques, that could be worn together or alone.
“Gold can be sentimental and sustainable when reused and remade into something the customer will adore. Susan has told us she will wear both bangles now and then will leave them to her grandchildren. This is the sentimental power of jewellery and it is stories like these that make this job so special.”
