A dear client recently brought in an old watch that her father, a fisherman, wore every day at sea. She wanted to honour his memory by giving the watch a new life. 

The condition of the timepiece told a story of daily wear and tear and hard work, and was unwearable in its condition. She met with our Design Team to discuss the possibilities of transforming the watch into something she could wear every day too. 

Link by link, the watch bracelet was dismantled and every piece individually polished and repaired. Diamonds were added to provide some sparkle. As a final tribute to the original owner, she had her father’s initials engraved on the clasp

What started life as a watch many years ago is now a custom, contemporary bracelet our client wears proudly.

This precious keepsake and reminder of her father’s life of providing for his family will endure for generations to come. 

Beautiful jewellery should last a lifetime, lovingly passed down from one generation to the next. But if your cherished family heirloom is no longer in fashion or to your taste, it can sit unused and forgotten in the bottom of a drawer.

Or perhaps a few scrapes and scratches on an old favourite piece mean it never gets worn – even though it might be easier than you think to return it to its former glory.
