April: Unexpected and Wonderful Jewelry “Tricks”

To celebrate April Fool’s Day, I thought I’d show you some unexpected and wonderful JD Designs April Fool’s jewelry “tricks”.  Most of these re-designs originate with inherited or vintage jewelry.

A word of advicealways have a qualified jeweler determine whether the piece you’ve inherited is ‘real’ or not. Recently, a client brought in a vintage bracelet she had received from her mother’s estate. After examining it, I determined it was 18K white gold set with a lot of diamonds, emeralds and accented with custom cut black onyx stones. After we picked her up off the floor, she told me she almost gave it to a friend as costume jewelry!  View other custom jewelry redesigns
