Three Changes To Make To An Inherited Piece Of Jewelry To Make It Wearable And Fashionable

In many families, it is customary for jewelry to be passed down from generation to generation. The only problem with this is that the style of the jewelry may not be as popular currently as it was generations ago and the jewelry may not be wearable due to wear and tear over the years. The following guide walks you through a few simple ways to make inherited jewelry wearable again:

Have the Jewelry Restored

You can take the jewelry to a jeweler and have him or her restore it for you. If there are loose stones or stones that have been lost, they can cut stones to the exact size and shape of the missing stones and replace them to restore the jewelry to its original condition. If stones are missing and you would like to have them replaced with different stones, this will serve as a great time to make the replacements.

Create a New Piece of Jewelry

If you do not like the way that the jewelry looks at all and know that you will never wear it in its current condition, talk to your family about possibly using the jewelry to create a different, more stylish piece. The stones can be removed and the metal can be melted down and used to create a custom piece of jewelry that you will enjoy wearing and be able to look forward to passing down to your children. Be sure to get permission from everyone in your family before you change the jewelry because the current design of the jewelry may have significance and you do not want to change it if it means something special to your family.

Have the Jewelry Customized

There are times when a piece of jewelry may have a great style to it, but not be made from the right metal. If you like the way that a piece of jewelry looks, but do not typically wear the metal that it is made from, you can take it to a jeweler to have it dipped in a different metal so that it has the look that you want, without being completely destroyed. For example, if you like to wear gold and the item is made from silver, you can have it dipped in gold so that there is a layer of gold over the entire ring so that it has a gold appearance.

If you are unsure what you want to do with the jewelry, contact a jeweler to discuss your options. He or she will be able to give you suggestions for different things that you can do with the piece to make it more stylish and appealing to wear.
