I had a customer come in that had this necklace. She said she never wore it, and if it was a ring she would get more use out of it. So I took out the stones, cut out a ring, put in some white gold bars, and set all the princess cut stones. The end result was pretty nice.
This ring is made in 14k red gold with white gold accents. It has diamonds from her grandmother, down the band,and the center stone was from her mother's engagement ring. I combined all of them into one ring with design that the customer picked out, I just made it fit the stones she had to work with. It is a little over 1ct total weight.
This was a cool job to do. I had a customer come in that wanted to do something with her Mom's old engagement ring and her dad's wedding band but didn't want the melt them down. So I cut them into separate pieces and soldered them back together. The pictures below are before and after.
