How much does remodelling cost?
The minimum fee for a gold remodel is around $3000. However, if you wanted to credit the old gold towards a remodel in silver, expect to pay from $990. The amount of work in a remodel can often be 5 times longer than a piece started from scratch. Whilst every job is completely different I find most gold remodels sit in the $2900.00-$5,700 bracket (when crafting in a 9ct gold).
Are you able to use my old gems?
Your gems will need to be of a decent quality to reuse. Often their size and quality determine how they can be set into a new piece. Debra will outline options and risks before commencing with you.
I am often asked if I can say take a large gem and cut it into smaller stones, I am not a cutter so this is not possible.
Please note working with your gems is entirely at your own risk (you will be asked to sign a contract before work commences).
Can you remodel Sterling Silver jewellery?
No, it is not possible.
When I remodel am I able to choose a different Gold colour from my old Jewellery?
I can mix different alloys with your refined gold granules before casting your new ring.
