Reviving Family Treasures: How to Bring Inherited Jewellery to Life Again

Inherited jewellery often holds sentimental value beyond measure. These pieces of family history are infused with stories, memories, and love that span generations. Yet, as the years pass, these treasures may end up tucked away in a drawer, seldom seeing the light of day. If you’re someone who possesses heirloom jewellery that you’d like to breathe new life into, the good news is that you don’t have to leave them gathering dust any longer. At Christopher Evans Goldsmith and Jewellers, we offer bespoke services that allow you to create unique, personalised pieces while incorporating your inherited jewels.

In this blog, we’ll explore the art of rejuvenating inherited jewellery and how we can help you create stunning new pieces that not only honour your family’s heritage but also fit your personal style.

The Significance of Inherited Jewellery

Inherited jewellery comes with a rich history and an emotional connection that makes it incredibly special. These pieces often symbolise the enduring bonds between generations, carrying with them the love and memories of those who have worn them before you. However, as time goes on, tastes change, and styles evolve. What once felt timeless may now seem outdated.

Rather than let these precious heirlooms sit unworn in your jewellery box, why not consider breathing new life into them? Transforming inherited jewellery into something contemporary and personal allows you to preserve the sentimental value while adapting it to your current style and preferences.

The Art of Rejuvenating Inherited Jewellery

Rejuvenating inherited jewellery involves a delicate balance between preserving its sentimental value and incorporating modern design elements. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how we might bring your family treasures back to life:


Begin by thoroughly examining your inherited jewellery. Take note of any damage or wear and tear that may require repair. Consider your personal style and how you’d like to incorporate these pieces into your daily life.

Design Consultation

Seek out a reputable jeweller like Christopher Evans for a design consultation. During this process, you’ll discuss your vision for the transformation, such as turning a brooch into a pendant or resetting gemstones into a new setting.

Expert Craftsmanship

Once we’ve finalised your design concept, our experienced jewellers will bring your vision to life. They will carefully disassemble, clean, and repair any damaged components before incorporating them into the new piece.


The beauty of rejuvenating inherited jewellery is that you can infuse your personal style into the design. Whether you prefer minimalist, classic, or contemporary aesthetics, our jewellers will work with you to create a piece that reflects your taste.

Wear with Pride

After the transformation is complete, you’ll have a beautiful piece of jewellery that seamlessly blends old and new. Wear it with pride, knowing that you’ve preserved your family’s legacy in a way that suits your lifestyle.
