Sail Away -Resetting of Necklace with Acrylic

We just delivered a necklace that was of special significance to the customer. In her own words:

“Before Frederick sailed, he gave me this necklace to remember him by. I loved it! For being unique and beautiful, and encapsulating what he does for a living and where he will be when we’re apart.
The sad part is that I am allergic to the metals that costume jewellery are usually made of. So within a month, the metal was tarnished and my skin was breaking out in rashes. Decided to get the metal replaced with rose gold so that I can wear the necklace on a daily basis. I am glad to find the wonderful folks of@morethandiamonds and@goldilocksjewellery who were not only able to maintain the acrylic part of the necklace and replicate the anchor to a T, but also added a plate with Frederick’s name on it.

Thank you @morethandiamonds and@goldilocksjewellery! If you ever need to revitalise and redesign a treasured piece of jewellery, I would recommend checking them out. They are both at the same place. (And no, I am not paid to do this. They are genuinely wonderful people!)”

What started off as a costume jewellery piece of sentimental value has been changed to a beautiful long lasting necklace with even more meaning. And that is what makes working with fine jewellery – and especially restoration so special.
