Upcycling Jewellery

Have you got a drawer or jewellery box full of pieces your Grandmother entrusted to you but you never wear because they're not quite you? Let us breathe new life into the stones and metal from your unworn, well-loved jewellery!

The upside of remodelling your old jewels is the sustainable approach of polishing up your original stones, melting down your metal and creating a dream piece for you that still holds all the sentimentality of the original piece. You can turn an inherited piece into a bespoke contemporary heirloom.

Step One : Your Unworn Jewels

We need to know as much as possible about the jewellery you want to remodel. The carat and weight of the gold/platinum, the size and state of the gemstones. 


Step Two : Designing Your Piece

Ellie Air founder Lauren will work closely with you to design your new piece, whether you want to add more stones, discussing your budget, your deadline and any other important factors.
Please note there is a minimum order for remodelling pieces:

  • £1,500 for a ring to be remodelled.
  • £1,000 for another piece of jewellery to be remodelled.


Step Three : Ways of Using Metal

There are two ways in which to use your metal - we can either melt it down and reuse it to create your new piece, or we can scrap it, using the scrap price against the final price of your bespoke piece.


Step Four : Creating Your Jewels

Once you've decided on your design and how you want to reuse the materials from your old jewellery it will take up to 10 weeks to create your remodelled piece. The best part is at the very end when you see your new, reimagined jewellery for the first time!

Please get in touch with as much information as possible, but don't worry if you don't know the answers to everything - we can finalise the details during the design process.
