I don’t know the answer to your question, but wanted to say that morganite in that style of setting will be so lovely!

This is very possible!  My ring is made from recycled jewelry, just that I don’t happen to know who the previous owners were.  So I think it’s very possible to make it from rings you know who the owners were.  The only issue would be mixing metals and what you want the final metal to be.  Gold is not 100% gold and there are always other metals involved.

 

BrilliantEarth.com is where I got my ring.  They do custom rings and take in old jewelry or use it for a credit.  If you really want your new ring to be from the old rings, then ask about the time frame.

Schubach is making my ring. The first design I had given them was this:

I have since deicded to not have that ring made, but the quote they gave me was $1500 (they would provide the pave stones and gold, and I was providing the center stone). They have a contest each year, and website guests choose a winner. If you let them enter your ring in the contest, you get $250 off the cost of the ring, so the quote was $1250 to make the ring, provide the pave stones, and set the stone I buy.

I imagine the cost would be lower if you provide them with the gold.

Their process is making a plan with you, making a wax mold, perfecting it, making a rendering of what the ring will look like etc, and then making the ring. I think they’re amazing.

Btw, I made that crappy pic on picsArt, lol, not Schubach. Go to their website and see all their custom work. They are amazing.
