@thumpurr: Do you mean someone who only does custom jewelry or could it be a regular jewelry store who also does customizations?  I don’t know of any who solely do customization.

If you’re going to have something new made from the old, I highly recommend visiting and talking to jewelers!  Go to any and every local store (not chains!) and spend time talking with the jeweler (not sales people).  Find a place you trust and where you “click” with the jeweler, not to mention the jeweler seems to know his stuff!

Having a ring/s remade is only the cost of labor if nothing new is added, so it should be pretty reasonable if the end result is not extremely fancy.

We were given a half carat diamond set in a ton of gold (for a ring anyway!).  And visited 20-30 jewelers with what we wanted done.  Most said about $250 to recast/set/etc.  One said $900 o_O.  One told me “I could make that but you wouldn’t like it”. 

Needless to say we didn’t go with them, I got what I wanted by a jeweler who was excited to make it and I love it!  And the jeweler we picked was slow (we were warned) but awesome to talk to, and in his work.  He even made the mold a little large but half and half cause he “had an idea” but whatever we wanted he could just pare down the mold (it was still sized to try on… just the top part was big so whatever we picked he could pare it down).  The idea he had was a little change and made the ring better than we even envisioned and is what we picked.  Make sure you jeweler is an artist and able to communicate and his business is honest and you’ll be super happy whatever you do!

Best of luck, having a special ring/set is pretty nifty and I hope you get what you are looking for!
