Most people have a piece of family jewelry hidden away in a drawer that they never wear because it isn't their style but they hate to part with it. The sentimental value is just to strong. Repurposing the the piece of jewelry into something that you would wear is is not only affordable but is easy to do. There is no reason to tear a ring apart and start over when you can make a few adjustments and breathe new life into it. That was the case with this ring. It was her mother's cocktail ring but she felt it was too large for her finger. After listening to her ideas, I converted the ring into a pendant that she would get more use out of. An easy customization that my customer was thrilled about.
