One of the neatest things about jewelry is it's ability to be "recycled". It's one of the best things we do here at Countryman's Jewelers, taking some outdated and in many cases worn out jewelry and turning it into something cherished.
Here is a great example of just that...
My customer had inherited her Aunt's rings.
She already had her own set. The thought of the rings just sitting there didn't make sense to her.
So she brought in the rings ...
We talked about her needs and what type of jewelry she would get the most use out of and decided a bracelet would work wonderfully.
We took something that was just sitting in the jewelry box and repurposed it. This bracelet is new and functional, bringing my customer great joy and she gets to think about her Aunt when wearing this piece. For a fraction of what a bracelet with diamonds would cost completed we were able to mount her diamonds. It's like going "green" with your jewelry, what can be better than that?
