Jewelry Restyling & Redesign


Restyle Old Jewelry into New Pieces that You Will Love to Wear

Make gems from the past into new works of art.

Re.gem.er.a.tion® is the process of taking your old jewelry and turning them into new masterpieces that you love to wear. 

Developed by our award winning designer Tammy Kohl, the philosophy of re.gem.er.a.tion® is to save both materials and money by recycling, redesigning and restyling old heirlooms into original designs. 

Make gems from the past into new works of art.


Gold necklace with a diamond pendant in bezel set on a white background

This pendant was originally a three stone diamond ring handed down from the client’s
grandmother. This “something old” was worn on the client’s wedding day.


Gold ring with five green gemstones in a bezel setting, ring sits on a white table
This ring made of 5 emeralds set in yellow gold was created by melting down the client’s old childhood jewelry that she could no longer wear.


Gold necklace with a diamond and baguette pendant in bezel set on a white background

In 1978, this client’s father bought her a .25ct diamond that ended up sitting in a drawer for
decades. Tammy paired the lone diamond with a morganite and created this custom pendant.


Gold necklace with a round pendant adorned with diamonds and engraved dollar sign at the center, necklace is on a white background

With a chunk of leftover gold from the client’s wedding rings and unused diamonds, we
designed a pendant embossed with their initials to celebrate their union.


Silver ring with white gemstone surrounded by smaller diamonds on a white background

This ring was handed down by the client’s grandmother and sat in a jewelry box. We created a new ring the client loves to wear using her opal, diamonds and two-toned gold.


Gold band ring with blue emerald shaped gemstone centerpiece sitting on a white table

This stunning aquamarine was originally set in an old band that didn’t match the client’s sense
of style. Tammy drew some ideas and revived this old ring into something that feels brand new.

Tammy did such an excellent job sourcing the unique yellow diamond we wanted for our engagement ring, as well as designing and building our ring. We were able to view CAD previews of the ring to approve and move at our own pace. We are thrilled with the results! Tammy is the best.

Tammy designed both my engagement and wedding bands. My wedding band was converted from an old ring of my grandfather's. Such a special piece of jewelry! Tammy was great to work with as we navigated what size and type of diamond we wanted for the engagement ring.
