Before any of you say David Klass, I already contacted him. He provided me a quote and everything and was very responsive at first, but it’s been over a month since I’ve heard back from him, even after follow-up, so I can only assume he’s decided against working with me 🙁
Are there any other reputable designers who will use your current stones to make/remake a set into a different metal? I picked 14k yellow gold, but I really prefer the deeper yellow of 18k, at least with all the diamonds I have on my set.
Thanks for any recommendations, bees!

I think Amcor can make a mold and replicate a ring. You can contact Poppyseed at [email protected]

What about a local jeweller? We have lots in our city and the prices are very reasonable.

I would use Joseph Jewelry in Bellingham Washington – http://www.josephjewelry.com – they can do everything online for you, they have a very impressive website of rings they’ve custom made, and they say they can recreate anything you want. They also have extremely talented engravers working for them. I’ve done silversmithing and a small amount of engraving in my past – but these guys are great!

Also – a few other things to consider. There is a shade of yellow gold called Royal Gold made by Hoover And Strong – it’s more buttery and yellow than normal yellow gold. You might look into it to get the yellow shade you want.
also – have you considered just dipping your ring? Everyone with a white gold ring has it dipped in rhodium to make it brighter white. Why couldn’t you do the same with yellow gold? It would sure save you a ton of hassles trying to find someone to remake your ring.
Why haven’t you gone back to your original jeweller? It should be easiest for them to remake your ring in 18k if that’s what you want. They’ve done it once already (I’m not sure if it’s casted or made by hand) – but at least you’re not giving it to a new jeweller and having for the best – at least you know the skill level of your previous jeweler
