I’m generally picky with things matching so if I could see a noticeable colour difference between my ring and wedding band I wouldn’t be happy with it. I usually stay in the same colour range.

But to each their own. I think it’s really nice that you want to use your mother’s stones. If the colour difference doesn’t bother you, I say go for it!

I had a very similar situation.  I had two diamond cluster rings from my late parents; one from my mother, and one from my father.  Because they were not going to be here for the wedding (I am encore and over 40) I wanted to incorporate their diamonds into my wedding band, so that I knew they could somehow be part of my marriage.  I chose seven similarly-sized diamonds from the two rings, and had them set in a channel-set band.  The clarity in them is marginal, and I (from time to time) notice a difference in color, as compared to my solitaire, but all that’s just not important to me…  I don’t think you’d notice.

My wedding band and engagement ring have different diamond clarity. I figure it didn’t matter too much because the diamonds on the wedding band are small (half eternity totaling .3 carats).  My engagement ring specs are D, IF (GIA) and there was no point in getting that for the tiny stones so they are F, VS1.

I wouldn’t worry about it. My E-ring is an I color with G color side stones and my wedding band has G color stones and I think it all looks fine together.
