The customer wanted us to remake his favorite yellow and white gold ring in all white gold. To save him some money, I suggested that we cut off the top plate of the existing ring and use it in the new ring since the setting was performed well and it was still in good shape. I carved a wax around the diamond encrusted plate. We cast it in super white 14K gold and soldered the plate on top. Turned out great.
