Something gold

Q. We've just embarked on planning our big day and are looking for greener options for as many things as possible. Can this include our wedding rings too?

A. Charlotte Cornelius says: Of course, remodelling old family or sentimental jewellery is not only a great way to recycle broken and forgotten pieces, it will also add a special personal touch to your wedding. We love nothing more than to transform unworn, damaged or out-dated heirlooms into fabulous and meaningful jewellery to be enjoyed and cherished every day. You can be part of the design process too, incorporating your ideas and personal history, use precious metals or stones from pre-loved or inherited jewellery for a fantastic new handmade creation full of memories and meaning that will endure for future generations to treasure.

Just in case you don't have inherited jewellery to remodel, we can also supply recycled gold, repurposed diamonds and ethically sourced precious stones to create bespoke rings.
