Can I Use My Own Metal?

Can I Use My Own Metal?

If you're considering having a custom signet ring created,  you might be wondering whether you can use your own metal in the creation of your ring.

If you are wanting to have sentimental gold used to create your new ring - for example, an heirloom ring that has been passed down through the family - we may be able to do this for you.

One of the great things about working with a qualified,  professional manufacturing jeweller, is that they know how to work with old metal.

It's incredible special and meaningful to continue the legacy of a loved one who has passed. 

How does it work?

To ensure we can use your metal, we will need to view it first. Although reusing metal is something we absolutely encourage, there is a small risk it won't work in the remodelling process, due to how it has been previously alloyed. 

What about jewellery that isn't sentimental?

If you have broken or unused jewellery that you would like to reuse, rather than heirloom jewellery, we can provide you with a trade in credit, which will help to bring the cost of your piece down. 

If you have any questions or wish for us to view your jewellery, give us a call on +6435469137 or email studio@benjaminblack.co.nz
