Of course, heirloom jewelry is not only great to give but to receive. When you receive a piece of jewelry that has been in your family for eons; it may not be exactly your style; however there are ways to turn this sentimental piece into something that you will wear often.
Heirloom Jewelry that isn’t Right for You
In the first place, if you have received something ornate that isn’t your taste; you should speak to a jeweler. At Peter Suchy Jewelers, we have experience working with our customers in bringing an old piece of jewelry to a new life.
Another thing to keep in mind is you can always turn a pair of earrings into a pendant, change a ring into a pendant or take diamonds and gemstones out of an heirloom piece and turn it into something fantastic.
