Some styles are timeless, but if you have inherited jewellery that’s not quite your style, it often ends up tucked away in a box.

The sentimental value of your inherited pieces make them important to keep, but when the design isn't your aesthetic, they end up unworn.

At URSA we want to help you breathe new life into your inherited jewels.

We offer a remodelling service that allow you to keep the sentimental value of the jewellery, but have it reworked into a new design that you will love and enjoy wearing.

To help you get started with reworking your heirloom piece, we’ve put together some advice and inspiration.


Why would you rework your jewellery?

There are a multitude of reasons for reworking your heirloom jewellery, but here are some of the most common reasons we have come across at URSA.

It’s Out-Dated

Jewellery doesn’t have to be antique to be old-fashioned.
Even pieces from the 80's and 90's look dated now, or they simply aren't timeless enough to have survived the changing trends.

It’s More Sustainable

New jewellery uses up new resources. 
But re-modelling a piece of jewellery means you are transforming its elements into a new piece.
So rather than using new metals and stones, creating a piece with a more sustainable mindset.

It Doesn't Fit Your Lifestyle

You love your inherited ring, but you have a lifestyle that means it gets in the way when you’re at the gym or cycling to work.
By taking the gold and reworking it into a necklace or earrings, you can make it more wearable for you and for your lifestyle.

It’s Just Not Your Aesthetic

A decadent brooch that’s been passed down through generations of your family may have significant sentimental value, but its embellished style is not be to your taste.
Heirloom reworking means you can turn your brooch into a piece you would actually wear every day.

You Want To Share It

Your mother left you a necklace, but you have three children that all deserve to inherit it - how do you split it between them all?
By breaking down the necklace into its elements and reworking it into 3 unique rings, meaning you can share the memories and meaning with multiple people.
