I think the family would be pleased that his gradnmother’s ring is your choice and you want to wear it.  If he had any issues about you not wearing the original one, he wouldn’t have offered his Grandmother’s.  I say go with Gradma’s ring.

I say grandmother’s ring. It is what he originally wanted to give you and I think is an honor to be able to pass down. Plus, who doesn’t like the idea of a diamond necklace. (maybe you could wear it the day of the wedding.)

You are being ridiculously silly.

You BOTH agreed that you would upgrade later, you BOTH knew that the original plan was to use his grandmother’s ring. Now you’VE got her ring and are afraid he’ll be hurt if you use it? Don’t be so foolish. He always knew you would use his grandmother’s ring and I bet he is thrilled to see that amazingly beautiful piece of family history sitting on your finger.

but remember that $700 isn’t going to waste if you are still going to wear it as another piece of jewellery 🙂 that way you won’t lose any sentiment that you have with it seeing as it’s the stone he proposed with

This is the only easy ” I want another ring” solution!!! His family will be pleased (hopefully, sounds like it), he will most likely be pleased etc. I say just tell him you love what he picked but you love his Grandma’s ring more, and it means a lot and he’ll understand. I’d turn his ring into a necklace or something. 🙂

If you’re not sentimental, you could try and sell his ring if he’s worried about the money (I’d be kicking myself too if I were him)! Or you could keep it as a right hand ring or something?

Grandmother’s ring, for sure.  Can he return the Amazon ring for a refund?

holy wow, that heirloom is gorgeous!!  i agree with PP, wear the grandmother’s ring as your e-ring, since it is what he wanted to give you originally.  

I love the idea of making the Amazon solitaire into another piece of jewelry.  necklace is a cool idea; have you considered making it a right hand ring?  then you could even alternate wearing them if you wanted.

i pulled some semi-mounts that would make lovely right hand rings, at various price points (as i know $700 already seems like a lot):

most expensive, at just under $500


this one is 330, with sapphires:


a kite setting for 188:


and then these two are sterling, under 80:




but regardless what you end up doing with the princess cut, wear that heirloom!

Easy peasy! Wear his grandmother’s ring as planned and use the first ring as a stand in for gym,  running errands, etc. Money isn’t wasted and you could always wear it as a right hand ring as well.
