HOW IT WORKS - Gems
Before making any design decisions, let’s evaluate what you have.
- If you’re in Seattle, stop by our West Seattle location, and we can look at it in person.
- If that’s not possible, you can send photos of the pieces you'd like to re-use OR we can meet online. Sign up for a virtual consultation here
What gemstones work? Essentially any! Diamonds are the hardest stones on earth, followed by moissanite, sapphires, and rubies, but if a gemstone is meaningful to you, it’s meaningful to us, and we’ll try our very best to make a creation worthy of your love. If you’re choosing between gemstones, we usually focus on round gems, but we’re happy to set other shapes for a $100 fee.
If you have a workable BYOG gemstone, then pick your ring below!
We’ll remove, measure, and clean it, then get to work creating the ring that will feature your treasured gemstone.
HOW IT WORKS – Gold
Do you have gold jewelry stamped with a gold karat stamp, that’s simply not getting the attention it deserves? We can melt it down and turn it into a WEND collection ring. If the gold covers the entirety of the ring, we’ll apply a 20% price reduction.
BYOG ASSUMPTION OF RISK:
We LOVE reusing gems and always use the best practices to protect them. However, you need to know that gems may still crack while unsetting or setting them. If we use your heirloom gem, you agree to assume the risk that it may be damaged or destroyed. If this happens, WEND will do our best to make plan b work for you.
