 If you have some outdated or old jewelry lying around, it makes sense to consider how you can use the gold to create a new, much more wearable design. However, it's difficult to find a jeweler who will do this. Researching your options helps you select the one that will work best for you.


Re-Casting Gold Jewelry

In some cases, your old gold jewelry can be completely melted down to make a new piece out of. This could be ideal if you have a piece with sentimental value that does not fit with your personal style or is damaged, such as the following:

  • Inherited gold engagement ring that is way too old fashioned.
  • Your old wedding band or ring that you want to make into a more modern design.
  • The bracelet you inherited and want to break into multiple pieces.

In general, re-casting does not really save you any money over buying a new piece of jewelry. That's because the process is problematic if the piece is less than 24k gold, because they are mixed with alloys. Each of those metals have a different melting point and behave differently, which makes for unpredictable results.

Things to Consider

Before selecting a jeweler to re-cast your gold, consider the following:

  • Did you want to make your old gold made into a new piece. If it's to save money on a new design, you are generally better off turning in your jewelry for a credit on a new piece. If it's for sentimental reasons, it would make sense to have us reuse it regardless of the cost.
  • If you have 24k gold. This is pure gold, and it's far easier to recast than alloys. Would be an easier experience
