We are so excited to launch our new Heirloom Collection in collaboration with Erin Gates. The collection was inspired by a custom piece that we made for Erin herself. The finished product was so effortlessly stunning that we all agreed that it would make an amazing addition to the Gates Collection.

 

We recently launched our Remake|Redesign service as part of Boston Jewelry Concierge – our newest expansion of our business offering private client services. Our Remake|Redesign service allows clients to bring us old or unworn jewelry to be recreated into a brand new design. We know that so many people are given heirloom jewelry pieces that hold so much meaning to them but are just not their style. We want to turn those meaningful jewels into beautiful everyday pieces.

 

When Erin heard about our new Remake & Redesign services, and she knew exactly which heirloom pieces she was interested in having remade. She had some jewelry that had been given to her by her mother and she loved the sentiment behind it, but thought that the style was just a bit dated for her.

When it was time to start discussing design ideas, Erin came in with some sketches of ideas that were more along the lines of what she wanted.  She really wanted something clean and modern with a classic design. A lot of her inspiration came from interior design – something she’s extremely passionate about.

 

What she ultimately decided on was a sleek, geometric “X” shaped setting that would be filled with her mothers diamonds in a beautiful pave setting. Once she saw the mock-up – she knew that they would be perfect for a pair of stud earrings that would be big enough to fill the ear.
