As a jewellery designer on the Sunshine Coast, I've had the privilege of helping clients breathe new life into their old, pre-loved jewellery. One trend that's been gaining popularity is the concept of a "divorce ring," made famous by celebrities like Emily Ratajkowski. These rings symbolise a new beginning, a fresh chapter in life after a significant change.

Remodelling an old engagement ring into a divorce ring is a deeply personal and empowering process. It starts with a consultation, where we discuss your vision and the story behind your old piece. We then sketch out some ideas, considering factors like the style, metal, and gemstones.

Next comes the redesign phase. Our team carefully dismantle the old ring, salvaging any precious metals and gemstones that can be reused. If there are sentimental stones or metals that you want to incorporate, we can integrate them into the new design.

Once the design is finalised, our team gets to work crafting your new piece. Whether you're looking for a sleek, modern design or something more intricate and symbolic, we'll bring your vision to life. All our pieces are custom designed and made in Australia using the highest quality metals and ethically sourced stones, should you want to add more to your new piece! 

Contact our bespoke team to book your "Divorce Ring Consultation" on the Sunshine Coast. 

The final step is the reveal, where you'll see your transformed piece for the first time. It's a moment of closure and celebration, a reminder that even after endings, there are new beginnings waiting to be embraced.

At Morgan & Co, we understand the emotional significance behind jewellery. We're here to guide you through the process, ensuring that your divorce ring is not just a beautiful piece of jewellery but a symbol of resilience, strength, and new beginning.

Why should I repurpose my engagement ring instead of selling it?

Selling a second-hand engagement ring can be challenging. Many people prefer new, untouched pieces, unless the ring holds significant historical or vintage value. This can make it hard to find a buyer willing to pay a fair price.

Remodelling your ring, on the other hand, not only gives you the best value for your money but also allows you to create a new, meaningful piece that you'll love to wear. By repurposing the gemstones and metals from your old ring, you're not only giving them a new life but also adding a personal touch to your new piece.

There's no need to feel strange about wearing a gemstone from your past. In fact, incorporating sentimental elements into your new design can make it even more special. Plus, if you believe in the energy of gemstones, we can use sage to cleanse and rid the stones of any negative energy, ensuring that your new piece is filled with positive vibes. Our co-owner, Laura, loves to get the sage out on any pieces that need a cleanse, so don't worry, we have the sage waiting! 

At Morgan & Co, we're passionate about creating meaningful jewellery that tells a story. Whether you're looking to repurpose an old ring or create something entirely new, we're here to help you every step of the way. Let us turn your old jewellery into a beautiful, one-of-a-kind piece that you'll cherish for years to come. 

Contact us for your free consultation and let's make something old into something new, together.
