I always thought this was a sweet idea to do someday. I wanted to see if others were planning on doing this down the line when your children are ready to get married? I actually have more then 1 e-ring cause the very first one was very cheap and he wantes to get me a big fancy one. then he didnt like the next ones i picked out. now i finally got one we both like but all together i have like 4, only 1 was real tho so thats how we were able to afford them. anyway someday I would like to give them to our children to use as their erings when they get engaged. that is if they want any of them. the one i have now isnt getting soddered to my wedding ring cause that has its own diamonds and that one is real. anyone else thinking of giving away their rings someday or you want to keep yours special just for you guys and they can get their own?

I’m keeping mine until I leave it to someone in a will – I don’t want to upgrade from what we had originally ever. I answered no, I plan on keeping my ring. We do keep jewelry in the family, my right hand ring is my grandmother’s engagement diamond remade. My mother has an INSANE ring it is gorgeous, I’m sure she’ll leave it to me and I might pass it on to a daughter perhaps.

My mom gave the diamond from her wedding band to my brother, but she has been divorced for 23 years so it really did not have special meaning to it. I really like my ring and plan on keeping it personally.

I will be keeping mine until I leave it to someone in my will. It’s already almost 100 years old though, so I’m not sure any of my kids would want it.

I gave my rings from my first marriage to my daughter (from that marriage) and had the diamonds from the ering reset into a pendant for her. Now that her father has passed, it’s meaning is extra special for her.

Can’t take it with you… I do plan for it to be a family heirloom. As to the specifics, we’ll have to see how life unfolds. I’ll be careful to avoid favoritism though.

I love my ring and my FI too much to ever see myself parting with it on purpose. When I pass I’ll leave it to whomever I trust to hold on to it, hopefully to give it to a descendant getting married for them or their love to wear as a forever e-ring 🙂

Nope. Mine will go to a grandchild after I die.

I think that’s a really sweet idea. I have no clue what the future holds for my e-ring. It would help if I had a wedding band first, LOL. But, I think it’s really sweet to hand it down to a son or daughter. It could also be sweet to lend it for a child’s wedding day as a something borrowed. Mine has aquamarines in it so it could double as a something blue 🙂

My engagement ring is a family heirloom so it will definitely be offered up when and if our child wants it.

Only if I get an upgrade in this lifetime lol. I’ll leave it to them in my will…and probably my daughter if I have one. If I have a son, I wouldn’t want his wife to get it and divorce him and have my ring. So I guess I’ll give it to my granddaughters

@beachbride1216: Me too! The center stone has been passed down for 4 generations, so I definitely plan to give it to one of my children. We have lots of heirloom jewelry, so hopefully we’ll have something to offer each child, if they want it!

I will probably pass mine down, if and when any kids want it

No, I wasn’t planning on giving my e-ring to my kids….until I die of course 🙂 I have 2 daugthers and a son, so maybe if I only had one child I would do that. Now, my mother has about 4 different diamond wedding sets (can you tell she loves rings?) I think they will each get one of her’s when the time comes for them to get engaged.

My wedding ring set is from my mother in law. While it isn’t my absolute dream ring, it’s gorgeous and has a lot of meaning to it. She has had at least three upgrades from the ring I have now, so this one was just sitting in her jewelry chest. DH wants to pass my ring down to our children one day, and I’m happy with this idea. It gives the ring even more meaning, and gives me a chance to get my dream ring one day when we can afford it.
