Got some gold jewelry gathering dust in your jewelry box? That’s a pitty, right?

Upcycling an old (family) jewel?

We love working with your gold and gemstones in order to breathe new life into your old jewelry. Discover all options to create a fine new design. Let our custom page inspire you.

In our atelier we can carefully examine your gold, the size and quality of your stones. Based on this, we will come up with a new design in dialogue with you. No problem if there is a shortage of gold. We can easily add some.

Prices for customization and upcycling depend on the customization request. Book your no-obligation appointment and we'll be happy to listen to your story.

Eigen diamanten hergebruiken

Which items are ideal for upcycling and which are not?

Gemstones with a hardness above 8/10 on a Mohs scale are our favorites (diamond, sapphire, ruby, aquamarine, tourmaline,....).

We only remelt 18CT solid yellow gold or 18CT solid rose gold. We do not melt silver nor white gold because they often contain traces of rhodium. We do not remelt fine necklaces either because they are usually highly tarnished. But we are happy to reuse them in a new necklace.

Plates, rings, medallions and coins are ideal for melting. If you can’t supply the necessary amount of gold, we add a portion in new gold.

Prices for customization and upcycling depend on the custom request. Book your no-obligation appointment. We'd love to hear your story.

Paying with old gold for the realization of a jewel

If your old gold has a color different than your favorite type of gold or your gold can't be remelted (e.g. white gold, fine chains,...) we offer the solution of (partially) paying with old gold. Atelier EL deducts €30 per gram of old gold from the design of a new piece of jewelry.

This gold must be checked and confirmed by the Elisa Lee goldsmiths as high quality gold (carat, purity).
