The team provides clients with the opportunity to turn unused rings, bracelets or necklaces into unique, expertly re-designed pieces.

Untapping the potential of unworn or inherited jewellery, visitors will get a free assessment and verbal valuation from the team, while exploring an array of redesign ideas.

The team of re-imagining specialists is headed up by director, Sarah Stoner.

She said: “For many of our clients, their Legacy experience is a deeply emotional and profound journey. Being able to wear their sentimentally important jewellery in a new and unique design has literally been a life-changing experience.

“I was already working with my husband who designs bespoke jewellery and from time to time we would be asked to remodel an existing piece. We reimaged a piece of jewellery for a lovely lady, whose emotional reaction to her completed jewellery stopped me in my tracks.

“She told us that she felt reconnected and close to her mum again. It was a feeling I felt hugely envious of. A feeling I wanted.

“At that time, my mum was in the final stages of her devastating battle with vascular dementia and my dad had just been diagnosed with stage four cancer.

“He passed away just weeks later and I lost my mum just a few months after that. Nicky’s emotional reaction to her reimagined mum’s jewellery made me wonder whether we could help more women feel like Nicky. More women like me.

“The feedback has been incredible, with many ladies travelling over a hundred miles to come along and meet the team..”

Based at Windsor House, Harrogate, the Legacy Jewellery team has already held a series of successful sessions in Harrogate but has now decided to take the show on the road.

Refreshments will also be provided.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
