Reincarnate your jewelry...
Do you have pieces you don't wear? A valuable heirloom that just isn't your style, a ring or pendent or earrings that you've simply outgrown?
Then consider re-purposing.
Give the stones a new home. Generally I can use any carat of gold and make something just for you or for someone you love.
Sentimental value is preserved with the same stones and metal, and as a bonus there's less material cost.
Repurposing is a win / win decision.
