... creating new rings from
your old family gold.
Kerstin Laibach offers a wide choice of recycled precious metals including:
yellow gold, white gold, rose gold, green gold, platinum, palladium, silver
and highly specialized champagne gold.
Kerstin also offers an
even more environmentally friendly (and sentimental) recycling
choice by creating new rings from your old family gold (often
inherited worn-out or broken jewellery) This is a rare Laibach
goldsmithing specialty and highly popular with wedding clients. If
your old family gold / jewellery is shown to be suitable for
re-melting it can be used as the pure source material to design
and create your new rings. Some aspects of your old jewellery may
even be integrated into your rings and there are various ways this
can be creatively realized. Alternatively, old family precious
metals can of course simply be used as a recycling deposit towards
your rings. All these recycling / design options can be discussed
Laibach wedding and partnership rings should not be a rushed decision
or an event planning afterthought.

Most importantly, when it comes to wedding plans, take your time
when considering your rings ... Out of all the costs to take
into consideration when preparing for your special day, your
rings are essentially the most significant items that will truly
become part of you. A wise couple will ensure that they do not
compromise on the expenditure, quality and ethical preference of
their bands. Partnership rings need to feel right and made solid
... A tactile, warming memory which reflects true-lasting physical
and environmental harmony; a substantial reminder of what your
celebration day will represent for years to come.
