Mine may not now, but it will I hope.  My FH made my ring out of a butcher knife, it was the one thing I asked for when we got engaged that he make my ring.  He is making his also.   I can only hope that future generations appriciate the work, craftmanship, and love that went into it.

My ring is my great-great aunt’s from my mom’s side. I was very close to my grandmother, and as she became ill, she told us about this jewelry she had that she wanted to pass down. Mr.ND and I had been together for over 6 years by this time, and she loved him just as much as she loved me.

I asked him to talk to her about our wedding soon, even if he didn’t plan to ask me right away, I wanted her to be ‘in on it’ before she passed because she was so special to us. She was so excited to give him this ring that she had inherited, and FI planned a big proposal including a ton of our family and friends – including my grandma. Even though she’d just gotten out of surgery and was supposed to stay at home, Mr.ND planned the proposal for a time when she would be able to join in the surprise and celebration. It means so much to me since she’s passed away and won’t be at our wedding, but every day I have a reminder of her love for us, and I hope to one day pass it down to my grandkids or great-grandkids.

@Mrs.tobe: Thanks. It meant so much to me that FI did all that planning and he knew how special she was to me (and he loved her, too).

I think it’s awesome that your FI’s great-grandma went out and got her own job and got her own ring! That is some progressive woman right there! And that ring is gorgeous. I think it’s a pretty fabulous ring with a great story, and a source of encouragement, too. You want it – then work hard and go get it!

My ring is my great-grandmothers ring, has her initials engraved on the inside and their wedding date 1/27/1951 -so we just passed what would have been their 60th wedding anniversary.

I love that it has history, it gets “big rock” comments now, I can only imagine what it was in that time!

FI had asked me to go ring shopping right around the time Grandma asked me if I would want this ring for “now” or in the will (urgh, she literally said did I want it when she was dead or alive…..joking -but still!) the ring from the store I picked is nothingggg like what my great grandmothers ring is, but I don’t think that ring would have held the extra meaning that this one has!

My center diamond is from my fiance’s grandmother’s diamond.  I believe his mom said it was actually in her upgraded ring on their 25th wedding anniversary and they still didn’t have a lot of money so he sold his tractor in order to buy it for her (his mom is from a very small, rural Georgia town).

@Mrs.tobe:

Mine is yellow gold on the band, white gold to hold the solitaire! I am so lucky to have inherited this ring, no idea what to get with it for a wedding band -need to get shopping!

Mine is was my husband’s great grandma’s. Her husband was a jeweler, and he gave her the ring. It wasn’t an engagement ring either, but when it got passed down to my MIL, she turned it into an engagement ring.
