Heirloom stones

Heirloom stones

Whether we are supplying the keystone or resetting a client's treasured heirloom piece, you are assured of smart designs and impeccable artistry. A diamond is forever, but the ring holding it is not. Give your heirloom a bespoke upgrade. Is your stone an heirloom?

Merriam-Webster definition of an heirloom: a valuable object that is owned by a family for many years and passed from one generation to another.

Bring in your old jewelry or a loose stone you inherited, and we will work with you to design and craft something new using the same diamonds and gemstones. 

Rules for accepting an heirloom stone

Your stone must remain in our possession during the time of production. We are fully insured so there is no additional risk

You bear the risk (however small) for the damage to the stone during the setting. If any damage occurs, you will be responsible for the stone replacement.

You will still be charged for the mounting - it's your responsibility to supply or pay for the substitute or pay for repairing (re-polishing or re-cutting) the stone. Commissions with heirloom stones require full payment upfront. However, when the stone is sufficiently valuable, a partial payment is acceptable.
