Recycle, Reuse, Repurpose– Diamonds!

December 10th, 2011 by James L. Sweaney, CGA, FGA. GG

“Sunburst” descibes this new ring, a one-of-a-kind original design by Jim and Jenny Sweaney of Mardon Jewelers. The center diamond, just under I/2 ct, is a beautiful warm Fancy Yellow color that we’ve accented with a custom bezel of 18K yellow Harmony gold. The 14k white gold mounting supports six marquise brilliant diamonds that radiate sparkle and add drama to the beautifully balanced arrangement of round gems. Our stock # is I-21382 and the total diamond weight is 1.75 cts.

This sister ring of 14k white gold emits cool fire with a spray of tapered and square baguette diamonds that surround the ideal cut round brilliant center. Another original by Jim and Jenny, stock # I-21247, diamond total weight is 1.01 ct.

Both rings are designed for everyday wear—the gems are set low, hugging the finger for a comfortable fit. The open work design allows a really big spread of gems for a grand and glorious look without the weight and cost of a lot of gold. Importantly, all the diamonds are repurposed—our estate buying department has been ultra busy recycling lots of jewelry the last few years, so we’re reusing the better quality diamonds we’ve acquired. Since we buy the stones in the second hand market for substantially less than what we would pay our diamond wholesalers, we can pass the savings on to you. Both rings are big, bold, beautiful and bargains!
