R&J had been shopping for an antique engagement ring, and discovered that they liked the Art Deco “panel top” style. R found a vintage ring mounting she liked, and sent a quick photo to her mom, who responded “oh, I have a ring mounting like that around here someplace”.
Sure enough, there was a family ring, but it had seen better days. Over the years, not only the center stone, but all the tiny accent diamonds had been removed. R&J brought it in to us, and quickly found a beautiful antique champagne color diamond for the center. We also restored all the tiny accent diamonds, and the ring was once again dazzling.
The best part though? Showing the restored ring to her grandmother. It had belonged to HER mother, (R’s great grandma), and she still remembered her mom wearing it.
Exactly the kind of jewelry story we are so honored to be a part of!
