Jewelry is Meant to be Worn-Not Kept in a Box.


We work with our own in-house Master Jeweler and jewelry artisans across the U.S. to transform jewelry. We take great pride in boosting your family’s heirlooms into current, wearable pieces that maintain their sentimental heritage. Family treasures are often at the heart of the DesignLAB as we breathe new life into them.


Want a fresh take on your family engagement ring? DesignLAB can use your diamonds and simply remount them to create a updated look for a minor investment.


Have jewelry that you never wear? The DesignLAB will transform it into a piece that you will love.


All design concept work is complementary.

If your jewelry is not being worn, allow us to transform it.

Our Master Jeweler utilizes a modern repair lab located in the heart of downtown Chattanooga to redesign jewelry. Most design work takes only 10 to 20 days to complete. Let us redesign, boost or transform your jewelry!
