Jewelry Redesign

One of the most fulfilling aspects of Philippe Medawar’s Jewelry Design Services is Jewelry Redesign. When an unworn jewelry item merely sits in a bureau or safety deposit box and no one enjoys its beauty or the loving memories it once conveyed, it has lost its usefulness and, arguably, it’s value. Occasionally, jewelry gifts are given with a generous heart but for various reasons are rarely or never worn. We also inherit items that have great sentimental value but do not fit with one’s lifestyle or aesthetic sensibilities. Philippe Medawar lovingly modernizes heirlooms, old fashion wedding rings, or any sentimental item, using the same noble metals and gemstones while magically transforming them into expressions of your personal style.

"I brought my grandmother's engagement ring in. The ring was missing the setting and the stone also worn very thin. Mr. Medawar added my grandmother's birthstone which is a yellow citrine and my birthstone on each side which is diamond. I saw my ring and couldn't stop shaking it is so beautiful because he added my birthstone on each side of my grandmother's stone. Thank you for the wonderful creation you made for me. I will cherish my ring forever."
—Debbie
