Sometimes we have sentimental jewelry sitting in a drawer because it's not our style or needs a refresh. I love working with you to reimagine this jewelry into your new favorite heirloom!
This ring is PERFECT!! Thank you so very much!! You created another incredible piece out of old jewelry (that I haven't worn in many years) into an artistic treasure!! I LOVE my sunset view more than anything, and you re-created this gorgeous landscape using my diamonds in my new favorite ring!”
My client came to me with jewelry and gemstones representing three different generations of her family. She had been wanting to create a really meaningful Reimagined Heirloom® that she would love for herself and eventually pass down.
Diamonds, sapphires, and rubies set in gold
Susanne Siegel is simply the best! She helped me create a piece of jewelry made from family pieces I’d been given. A true modern heirloom.
Between 2 pairs of earrings, 2 wedding rings, and loose stones I had collected over the years from my Mom, my stepMom, both of my maternal grandmothers, and my Dad, I had beautiful pieces that meant so much to me, but wasn't jewelry I would wear.
I had been saying for YEARS, I was going to 'do something' with all this and have a piece(s) made I could wear all the time. Enter stage right.... Susanne Siegel with Susanne Siegel Jewelry and her Reimagined Heirlooms® work. She worked with me from a pile of pieces, to drawings and consultations, to wax carvings, to a Master Goldsmith creating this UNBELIEVABLE, AMAZING, AND SPECTACULAR piece I will have all my lifetime... and then pass along to my niece. It's the only piece of jewelry in our family that represents three different generations - truly tomorrow's heirloom!
A BEAUTIFUL REMINDER
The perfect Reimagined Heirloom®
I have several pieces of jewelry - necklaces, bracelet and earrings - that I love. However, my favorite piece is my Reimagined Heirlooms® ring. After losing my Mom as a teenager, I wore her engagement ring on my right hand at all times. Years later, the mother of a dear friend passed away and she gave me a simple sapphire band.
I started wearing them together (though the yellow-gold band a white-gold diamond ring really didn't go together, except in my heart). Enter Susanne. She took both pieces and came up with a gorgeous design incorporating both rings (and keeping the original engament setting intact - critical for me). I wear it every day and I can't count the number of compliments I receive. I smile each time I look at it as it represents two strong women who influenced my life and I'm lucky to have a beautiful reminder of them at all times. Thanks Susanne!
