Tips to Recycle with your Wedding Jewellery
Jewellery is a big investment for every buyer and buying it again and again is sometimes not feasible for everyone, especially when you are a newly-wed or are set to tie the knot. And, if you don’t wish to spend most of your investments in buying fine jewellery pieces for your wedding, we bring to you some tips that are budget friendly and will save you a lot of money, yet make sure you shine on your wedding day!
Re-imagine an old piece. A little imagination can work creative miracles with pieces that are too small, fragile, or damaged to be worn. A dainty diamond watch, now likely too small for the wrist, can be attached to the gold cuff on the left. A vintage diamond brooch can become a showpiece again in the gold cuff on the right.
If you are also the one who prefers wearing fine jewellery, truly understanding the unmatchable shine and look of a real jewel piece compared to custom jewellery pieces, then these tips might help you saving a few bucks and setting new fashion goals this wedding season. Here’s a look at how you can rethink jewellery and recycle it.
Wear it in a new way
Wrap a chunky choker around your wrist tied from two ends with easily available transparent jewellery elastic. It will look like a multi-layer attached bangle set. Or if you wish to keep it loose and give it a look of a bracelet then you can loosely tie it around the wrist and let the sound of the pearls/hangings do the talking.
Brooch or Hair Accessory
Consider using a brooch as a hair ornament for a messy French bun or a fish tail plates, it will look amazing with any ethnic wear making you look trendy.
Earrings Found on Collars
Big diamond studs with metal designs pinned either singly like a bow or in pairs on the collars will add that charm to your solid color upper making it look apt for festive wear.
Broken Necklace or Studs
Turn a larger piece of jewellery into several smaller ones. The gems in a broken statement necklace can become earrings. You can just go to your jeweller and ask her to add pearl hangings to it and here you are with your pearls drops donning the chic look.
Wedding band or Twinning Neckpiece
Twinning with your loved ones is hot this season and if you wish to have any such this season then just take your plain finger band to your jeweller cut it into two halves and get it into two delicate chains to match it up with your hubby or BFF.
Don’t Change the Jewellery Just Change the Studs
Re-purpose the gemstones in your favourite old statement piece to give it a new look. If the jewellery is damaged or if its original setting is not worth saving, you might consider removing the gems and mounting them in a new piece of your own design. You can create a piece of jewelry that will become an heirloom for future generations that still has ties to the past.
Share the Bond
If you have got an old piece which is attached to your family memory you can divide the gemstones of the broken piece among siblings and other loved ones, so everyone can share the memories, and create their own heirlooms.
Make it fresh and wearable again. Sometimes all a piece of heirloom jewelry needs is a “tune up”. Take your vintage or antique treasure to a jeweller and if she is a true designer she will help you find a way to have a new one at almost cost attached. Happy Festivities to all!
