Years ago I lost a treasured diamond ring that was my grandmothers, which I had always wanted to replace. As I have been divorced for several years I had my promise ring, engagement ring and wedding ring sitting idle in a jewellery box for the past 10 years. I decided to go and visit Ed at Odyssey Jewellery in Richmond Hill.
I showed Ed my three separate rings which each had a very small diamond in them. I told him the story of wanting to replace the heirloom ring I had lost, but I wanted a more modern look to it.
Resetting Engagement Rings
A ring is built to last forever, but over time you may develop different jewellery likes and needs. Redsigning or Resetting engagement rings is a great way to hold on to the memories of the past while creating a stunning ring that better matches your current lifestyle and tastes. At our custom Toronto jewellery studio, we’ve worked with many people wanting to reset their engagement ring. Whether they simply want something different, or now have the financial means to have their ring upgraded, we have many exciting options for resetting your engagement ring.
Taking a ring you already have in your collection and revamping it can be a more affordable option than purchasing a new ring. Whether it be a few years old, or an heirloom ring that’s been in your family for generations, our experienced Toronto jewellery designers will turn your dreams into reality and we’ll walk you through the entire process. Our goal is to create a unique and personalized redesign for your ring and we’ll find the perfect setting for your stone.
Here are some of the most common ways to reset your engagement rings:
More Diamond Accents: Adding accent diamonds to your ring is an excellent way to instantly give your ring a more upgraded look and feel. A common method is to add diamond accents to the sides of the ring. With the right design and stones, you will find your centre stone is highlighted more in the ring’s design with increased focus and shine.
Upgrade to a Three Stone Ring: Many of our customers have greater financial flexibility as their career progresses and they want to invest more money in their engagement ring. Upgrading to a three-stone design from a single stone is an excellent way to add more value to your ring and to instantly upgrade its look. We’ll reset your ring to have two medium or smaller stones added, one for each side of your centre stone. This will make your centre stone appear larger in your ring’s design. Diamonds are the most common stone used in a reset, but other valuable gemstones such as rubies or sapphires can be used to create a unique and beautiful ring design.
Replace Your Centre Stone: One of the easiest ways to upgrade your engagement ring is to simply replace your centre stone with a larger and upgraded diamond. A larger diamond is a great way to symbolize the growth you’ve experienced in your relationship and also your financial accomplishments. Many couples cannot afford a big stone in the early stages of their relationship and chose to upgrade to a larger diamond as time goes on.
Add a Halo to Your Centre Stone: Adding a halo to your ring is a great way to completely change the overall look and feel of your engagement ring. Our team of ring designers will work with you to find the right halo design that not only frames your centre stone but also adds some more sparkle to it.
Upgrade the Setting of Your Diamond: Another way to reset your engagement ring is to upgrade your ring’s setting. Not only will upgrading your setting make your ring more attractive, it can help protect your centre stone from getting damaged (especially on the sides of the stone). Our team will work with you to find the right setting and bezel for your ring.
Add Coloured Stones: Looking for something a little different when resetting your engagement ring? Adding coloured stones to your ring setting can open the door to an almost endless amount of design options. Stones such as rubies, sapphires and emeralds can be used to add an interesting and unique look to your ring.
In order to keep your engagement ring look pristine for years to come it’s recommended that you have it maintained by a professional jewellery cleaner on a regular basis. We recommend that our customers have their rings cleaned, inspected and maintained yearly. It’s very important to check the condition of your ring’s stones and the setting claws. Our team can also do ultrasound cleaning of your ring to keep it sparkling for years and decades to come.
We provide the following services at our Richmond Hill jewellery factory:
