I want to honor my Grandmother, who passed away a few months ago in a special way. So, my idea is to wear her wedding band around a plain chain for my necklace.
Though, I’m wondering two things:
1. Would it look weird in general?
2. Would it look weird because Grandma’s ring is gold and my rings are white gold (so, I would be wearing a gold necklace with white gold rings…)
Thoughts? Ideas on how else to wear her ring?

Thanks, guys! I just I just worry too much about all the little details. Has anyone else done something similar? Post some pictures!

I think it’s a lovely way to make your grandmother present that day. I’m wearing my great grandmother’s wedding band on my right hand. It’s a simple gold band while my rings are platinum. I say the sentimentality outweighs any difference in color.

I don’t think anyone would notice, and it’s a beautiful sentiment. I had something of the same happen at our wedding–but choose to wear grandmas gold ring on my right hand, and my wedding & engagement ring on my left. That works too (if the ring fits).

i think rings are exempt from the metal matching rule. like, i would never mismatch earrings and necklaces, but my e-ring is white gold and i rarely wear white/silver jewelry. but then again, my wedding band is rose gold (i wear it on my left hand and ering on my right), so i mismatch all the time and think it’s okay, so maybe don’t take my word for it 😉
i think it’s a lovely sentiment to wear your grandma’s ring! i wore a watch from my grandmother to honor her memory.

Thanks, ladies. You are all right. I’ll just have pearl or gold earrings to match the necklace and not worry about the rest. Thanks!! 🙂

That’s amazing 🙂 you shouldn’t worry about the metals not matching. I think it’s super sweet that you’re doing that!
