Reusing Heirloom Diamonds

A customer recently contacted me about repurposing her diamonds from a preexisting ring she had. She had sent me a picture of her ring and diamonds hoping we could reuse them in a new 18kt yellow gold ring.

 

 

After going over the CAD model with her, we decied to add two more diamonds to complete the look. 

With her approval of the final design, the ring was 3D printed and cast in 18kt gold. 

 

 

 Take a look at the final ring and keep this in mind when designing your custom ring! Diamonds are a very strong material and do not scratch or wear away over time. Heirloom diamonds can almost always be used in a new setting.  What a great way to combine the old and new, creating an updated look while holding on to the sentimental value.
