Personally, I like the idea. I had a friend who got married recently and both her mother and her husband’s mother had passed away a few years before the wedding. They used diamonds from both mothers’ rings in her engagement ring. I think it was a nice way to remember them. However, not everyone may feel the same way, so I would recommend getting your mom’s thoughts on the idea.

My DH used diamonds from a ring that my grandmother left me in the band of my engagement ring. The original ring was HUGE, chunky, yellow gold and I told him when I got it that it’s a shame that I would never wear it and I wish I could do something with the diamonds.

He snuck it out of my jewelry box when he was having my ring made. It means SO much to me that I get to carry a part of her around everyday.

I say GO FOR IT!

I’m planning to do the same thing with one of my grandmother’s rings!  My mom is fully on board, she would rather have us change it to something that would actually get worn than leave it in a jewelry box.

My mom did this with a couple of her grandmother’s rings!  She also had a ring restored for me!  The restoration made a ring that was no longer wearable look as good as new, but as marvelous as old!
