Did you or your SO's heritage play a role in the design of your rings?

Nope! I’ve only really seen it with Irish symbology… But I’d be curious to see if anyone else has done something like this with their rings.

DH is Canadian with a mostly Ukrainian background, and I’m Canadian with a chilean/mixed background… So nothing really seemed like it would fit, maybe a canadian diamond… But that wasn’t so important as long as the stone was conflict free.

Nope! But we are both such mutts of every single european heritage that neither of us even identify with any particular nationality beyond “american”

However, I think that it is so beautiful when I see women with stunning rings that represent their, or their Fiance’s nationalities.

Some of the claddagh enagement rings I have seen seriously take my breath away.


I’d feel weird wearing onemyself because neither my FI or I are particularly irish. I have a little fraction of irish in me but that’s it.

@lavenderstone:  Not technically. However, I have been dancing hula for almost 8 years and I fell in love with a Hawaiian designed ring which is now my e-ring.

absolutely. People accurately guess where my husband is from based on my ring all the time.

I guess it did. My guy’s family is from Asia where solid gold jewelry is more common/popular. We ended up with solid gold ring, a combination of that and personal taste. The women in my family didn’t quite get it but the women in his family went nuts over it.
