On occasion, people acquire jewellery that is not to their taste or that over time their taste has changed. In these instances, remodelling is a sound choice because it encompasses stones and metal from the existing piece into the new piece in an entirely new design.
Through the remodelling process, components can be added or omitted to create entirely new pieces, in a form we like to view as upcycling. However, one needs to keep a check on the economics of the process; sometimes the value of the workmanship in the old piece is too great to destroy, or the value of the final piece can be less than the cost to remake. We always advise our customers on these issues.
