Yes, I can re-set a stone that you have in a ring currently, or set one that you might have sitting in a safe. However, there are some things you should know ahead of time.

Re-setting can be hard on a stone. Imagine it was your house – in this day and age, a house can be picked up and moved to a new location. But if there was any problem with the house to begin with, the re-locating would certainly bring that to the fore.

I will use the utmost care and skill in extracting your stone from its current setting, and re-setting it into this custom-made ring for you. Sometimes, a stone can have unseen fissures, which can crack in the process of un-setting and re-setting. This not being a stone I have chosen (and in this case, even seen), I cannot guarantee its authenticity, nor can I guarantee its complete safety when I re-set it, no matter how careful I will be. Having said that: I do it all the time! I guarantee that I will use the exact stone that is sent to me, and that I will apply skill and love to the rebirth of your ring.

Often clients ask me to use the gold from their old rings towards the making of the new one. This is a lot more complicated than you would think. For one thing, not all gold is actually what it is stamped as.  Secondly, I cannot simply melt the gold into a new ring; this would compromise the strength of the gold itself, as the precious metal could become brittle from being melted repeatedly. In order to do this correctly, your old gold will need to be refined first to 24k purity, then re-alloyed (mixed with other metals to make it 18k), and then made into the wire I use to forge the Onefooter rings from. All this takes money and/or a lot of labor. The resulting value is generally much less than people expect. When you bought that piece originally, you weren’t paying just for the gold, of course – much like, when you eat at a restaurant, you don’t just pay for the groceries needed to prepare the meal on your plate. 

So: I can use your gold to towards the creation of a new piece, but you may be surprised at the value – which is a going rate in the industry. That rate fluctuates with the market price. At the time this update, March 31 2019, trade-in value of stamped and hallmarked gold is as follows:

$32/gram for 18k and $25/gram for 14k gold

Remember: this changes depending on market price. I will confirm at time of receiving your gold jewellery/coin & weighing after stone extraction. Please know that I might use a gold tester to check pureness of metal; testing of gold can leave a small mark, and will require filing into the surface of the gold to make sure the actual metal is tested, not just its surface.

All diamonds are Canadian diamonds which are all ethically sourced. Our sapphires are from Pierres de Charme. I source my sterling silver and gold for most of my jewellery, such as the OneFooter series, from Umicore Precious Metals and Stuller Inc. Cast materials for rings like those in the MapleLeaf series are from recycled materials from Montreal-based SR2 Technologies.

I only make OneFooter rings in 18k yellow or 18k palladium white gold, or sterling silver. No lower carat, no rose gold.

Palladium white gold lends itself to the forging technique. I appreciate its colour very much – it is very contemporary, and it is hypo-alleregenic, as it does not contain nickel.

I can rhodium plate, but I do not recommend it; I recommend against it as it has too many surfaces to rub off the plating.

My settings are always either 18k yellow or 18K white gold.
