This ring was a redesign for a client who had a diamond ring remodelled by her mother but originally her grandmother’s, and a large amethyst pendant.
Because this client lives in Malta the proposed design she chose included a wide ring band made in the style of Maltese filigree, but created from stronger gold ribbon.
Working with existing jewellery is challenging because it was never intended to blend into new designs. There is a great responsibility to honour the original memories linked to the heirlooms.
Tara Lois is especially proud of this ring because it won Malta’s People’s Choice Award with votes from around the world and featured on Maltese TV.
Created by hand using recycled 750/18ct gold filigree ribbon, original yellow gold diamond ring and the rose gold amethyst pendant with 2 micro diamonds.

“The ring diamonds belong to grandma’s engagement ring. The amethyst I bought in the New Forest years ago and the gold filigree is recycled gold belonging to my mother. I can’t wait for it to finally come home to me. Thank you Tara Lois Jewellery and everyone who voted for this ring. Well done Tara.” Penny from her Facebook post
