Reloved Hearts and Additions

Reloved Heart Stacker ring using your own gold

You can use a small amount of gold, about 0.2-0.4g which can be melted down to make a wee accent heart to add to any piece of jewellery - a ring, a necklace - whatever you see from my collections. The most common thing to do with it is to add it to a stacker ring - plain or personalised.

Reloved Heart Pendants

I can use your old gold to make a new Close to my Heart Pendant which can be used as a necklace, charm for bangles, bracelets or earrings. The hearts can be plain, be personalised or have flush set stones (yours or I can provide) set into the hearts.

(See chart below for how much gold you need for these hearts)

What do I need?

Regardless of what type of metal you are sending me - it MUST be HALLMARKED- this is especially important for gold.

Each metal type needs to be grouped and melted together ideally - so ALL pieces should ideally be 9ct 375 Hallmarked Gold or All Sterling Silver 925. 

*See table for the hallmarks to look out for

Where can I find my Hallmarks?

Rings - inside the ring band
Earrings - on the earring post and should usually be on the butterfly scrolls too.
Pendants - on the pendant loop and also on the chain near the clasp if this is heavy enough or on the reverse of the pendant
Chains and bracelets - on the clasp or close by

*Fineness Marks

Let's make something special

Please email me with photos of your jewellery you want to remodel and what you would ideally like to do and I will give you a price for the project.

The Reloved commissions are time consuming as to get gold in a state where I can work with it and remodel it take lots of time and lots of woman power! But I can promise you is that I put my whole heart into each project to make sure I produce something incredibly precious to you.
