Lately I have been getting a lot of requests to make Engagement rings and/ or Wedding rings out of old gold. For some people, this is a reflection of the current economic climate and for others it's about giving sentimental items another life. It's a great way to cut down on costs by recycling gold, and any semi-precious or precious gems. I've just added a video of a melt and remake of a bangle I did last year that you might like to look at to see how it's done.
I love re-using old jewellery and turning them into something new, however there are things to be aware of.
1. The quality and carat of the gold you have.
2. The amount of gold you have.
I hope that this has helped clear up a few questions about melting down old gold to re-use, please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!
