Notice a little something sparkly on Jillian’s finger? That modern ring was actually her grandmother’s that she recently had reset and restyled with Gemvara (who are pros at customizable, handcrafted jewelry). They’re the first to offer diamond + gemstone resetting online with their new service, Stone Reset by Gemvara (discount code below!). She was able to send her stones in to be reset into a new piece by their experts. Allow Jilly to explain…
Talk about a before and after, right?
Over the holidays my mother handed me down a ring that my grandmother had designed. It held three engagement diamonds—one from her and two from her aunts. I loved the ring and the sentiment, but it wasn’t my style. Gemvara seemed like a great site to reset the ring, and since 49% of the people they studied have fine jewelry they don’t wear, you might want to dig up your own pieces to restyle too!
I worked with them and we created a ring that feels elegant and timeless. After trying on a few styles and throughly combing their site I went with the Renee ring in a rose gold setting. It’s the perfect blend of modern and classic. I can’t stop staring at it.The Stone Reset was a great way to preserve the ring’s history while transforming it into something that wouldn’t just sit in a jewelry box gathering dust. My grandmother was quite the fashionista in her day so I know she’d be thrilled to see how I transformed her design.
It took a whole three steps to complete the process. Quite simple really:
1. Send Stone. Gemvara sends a free, prepaid + insured mailer for you to send your stone in. You can also preview possible designs + pricing for your stones by entering info online. I was so nervous about mailing in my ring, but everything went smoothly. Even in the midst of a crazy New England snow storm, ha!
2. Stone Assessment. They’ll inspect the stone, confirm the measurements, and secure it.
3. Handcraft. You select the perfect design and a Gemvara jeweler handcrafts the new setting from scratch and sets the stone. The restyled piece is delivered just one week (umm yeah!) after Gemvara receives the stone.
*You still get the same 101-day return policy, 1 year warranty, and customer service that comes with every Gemvara purchase.
