a new Hawaiian heirloom bracelet, ring or pendant for yourself or to give

earth green by recycling old, broken and unused jewelry, normally known in
the trade as "scrap" into new jewelry. For every ounce of
"scrap gold or silver" we recycle into new jewelry, we reduce
the need of the mining companies to mine a ton of earth.
By recycling we are able to turn one's old jewelry into a new piece
of Hawaiian jewelry thus conserving on the consumption of resources and
energy. Our clients are also able to keep cherished family mementos in a
new form of jewelry rather than selling it to scrap gold and silver
dealers. Our jewelers/engravers take much pride in recycling your old
jewelry into a beautiful piece of Hawaiian jewelry. You can begin the
process of recycling your old, broken and unused jewelry into a new piece
of Hawaiian jewelry by visiting Designs 'N Gold in our
location or by visiting the Designs 'N Gold website.
