So, here's what I did with my old engagement ring...



Most of my long-time readers know that I got divorced last year after a long separation. And before you start feeling sorry for me, don't. The divorce had been a long time coming and a subsequent blessing in disguise....as I have moved on and found love once again, because duh! I'm still young(ish) and still pretty cute. Life is short. Love often...

Obviously, I kept my engagement ring, not knowing what the hell I was going to do with it. I desperately tried selling it to no avail. And then my boyfriend had the greatest idea. The ring itself would never be worn again, but what if I could take the diamonds out of the setting and re-purpose them into jewelry I would be able to wear again....

Brilliant. Since the ring had been purchased from well-known jewelers, the Shane Company, I went back to them.



Shane Co. in Cupertino, California was where I headed to see if they could make me a pair of stud earrings with a matching pendant necklace. 

They have a full-service goldsmith department on location. And thanks to branch manager Hank, my old engagement ring was beautifully transformed into the earrings and necklace I had envisioned...
