Remodelled jewellery pricing
The price of a remodelled piece of jewellery will vary depending on the materials used, manufacture prices and complexity of the design.
As a rough guideline remodelled designs in sterling silver usually start at £300, 9ct gold starts at £650 and 18ct gold / platinum starts at £950. More complex designs and using several gemstones will increase the design and crafting time, and thus the final price.
If you have a budget in mind, we can design your jewellery accordingly to make sure you’re happy with the final price.
Here’s an outline of the costs of a bespoke piece of jewellery:
- Initial consultation in person in Salisbury, or online by zoom and email, to establish a rough price estimate – FREE
- Design sketches, from initial designs to a developed final design - £50 (which will be deducted from the final price if you proceed with the design)
- Deposit – once the final design is accepted, a deposit of 50% is required before materials are ordered and crafting begins
- Final balance – once the finished jewellery is ready to collect / dispatch the final balance is required (minus your initial design deposit and 50% deposit)
If the jewellery to be remodelled is sentimental we can refine and reuse the metal from the jewellery as well as the gemstones. However, it can be cheaper to use new gold and offset the value of the original metal, especially if your existing item is made from white gold. This is because the alloy metals used in white gold can make it hard to melt down and reuse. We can advise you accordingly when the existing metal is appraised and weighed.
There is always a small risk when using heirloom gemstones, especially brittle and soft gems such as emeralds and opals. Again, we can advise you accordingly to reduce the risks as much as possible.
