Is that black diamonds between the ones on the edges or blank space? Either way I think its really cool! If you love it, its a great E-ring!

@adbritton:  I feel like you shouldn’t reset it. Its a very old piece with lots of history. If you don’t like it maybe pick a different ring. But it seams a shame to break apart such a cool piece

Very cool ring and love the history behind it! I kinda feel like it should kept intact given it’s known history, etc. But, I’d prefer it as a right-hander.

If you don’t love it I’m not sure you could wear it as an e-ring. You know? You’ll be looking at it every single dingle day.

If you don’t want to wear this ring as it is, please choose a different ring as your engagement ring. This ring is an heirloom, it has history behind it, and it has been around for such a long time. To change it now would be just terrible. 

That being said, I think it would make a great engagement ring, as long as you like it. It’s beautiful as it is.

Echoing all the PP’s who say please don’t reset it.


It’s a very arrogant thing to take an antique with historical significance and change it or destroy it to suit your taste.

I think its gorgeous! I’d like it better as a RHR though personally.

I think it’s gorgeous! I would leave it as is. I wouldn’t do anything to it but wear it. Congratulations it’s a beautiful ring.

@adbritton:  If you dont LOVE and ADORE it, then I don’t think you should wear it an an e-ring. I also wouldn’t reset it- it’s too old with too much history and would be a great RHR for special occasions. Since it sounds like you don’t love it because it is yellow gold (I would feel the same way- just doesn’t work with my skin tone), I would use a different ring for an e-ring.
