CUSTOM DESIGN STORY: A VINTAGE REPLICA RING
BY LINDSEY SCOGGINS STUDIO
THE STORY OF A REPLICA RING BROUGHT TO LIFE TO REPLACE A CLIENT'S MISSING HEIRLOOM
A very meaningful custom commission, this vintage replica ring is much more than just a beautiful piece of jewelry. Our client inherited the ring from her grandmother. At some point, it unfortunately went missing and she contacted us with the hopes of recreating it.
Lindsey describes the experience of bringing this vintage replica ring to life below.
"REPLICA: a most special project. A lost heirloom ring, an appraisal from 1979, and a grainy black and white image. Could we replicate this special piece? This project was full of challenges, but the result was so beautiful and it reminded me why I chose to do what I do. I get to work with clients who trust me and my team to create magic for them. I have a CAD designer who is spectacular and patient with the process of building models together, and a jeweler who reassures me everything will turn out as it should. I didn’t design this piece, so I didn’t put my usual trademark inside, just my initials as the maker who shepherded its journey back to my sweet client. The best kind of jewelry story."
Our client just had the original appraisal from 1979 that had one image of the ring - the grainy black and white image below. We used this to model the replica that was as close to the original ring as possible.
A WORK IN PROGRESS
This piece was a true labor of love that required months of design work before we could even build the physical model. We knew how important it was for the design to resemble the original ring as closely as possible and wanted our client to feel as if she had never lost the ring in the first place. It was well worth the time it took to create this special piece.
THE FINAL PIECE
The final piece is a beautiful reminder of the meaning that jewelry holds along with a sweet symbol of what's meant for you returning to you - one way or another. Contact us to have your own vintage replica ring made or to discuss bespoke design possibilities.
