@jcotter90:  Yes indeed!  My center stone is an Old Mine Cut from my FI’s grandmother.  I’d choose it over anything else, I love it so much!!!

Yours is stunning!!

Yep! The diamonds are my grandmother’s, as is the design. We had it re-cast in white gold because I don’t like yellow gold.

Yay for family stones!

My ring is stll being made, but it has two diamonds from SO’s family (one from grandmother, one from great-grandmother, both maternal) as the outer stones, the center diamond was my mom’s, and my halo is made of diamonds from my aunt.

love all these rings!!

Lovely rings and stones!  

My e-ring was my great-grandmother’s and then my grandmother’s.  I absolutely love the style so we didn’t bother to reset the stones!

Both of my grandmothers are still wearing their engagment rings.  My mom’s mom wears one on each hand (she re-married after my grandpa died).  I’d rather have it that way.  🙂

My ring was my fiance’s grandmother’s. The diamond is an OMC and was originally used in something else before it was made into this ring sometime in the 30’s.

@FutureMrsHolmes:  I’m still a waiting bee 🙁 My SO wants to give me a three stone though to compliment my RHR. Its so hard trying to find something that won’t compete but will also be different. I had asked my mom a while back if I could use it as my engagement ring- but my grandfather really wanted us to pass it down and it would suck to have to give away my engagement ring. Plus she feels the man should buy a ring lol!

@FutureMrsHolmes:  ohh!! what does your moms ring look like? and ah that is so hard. I would hate to not know! its hard enough to pick a style of ring. You will be fine either way, though! I would just try to pick two styles you like and either way you cant go wrong 🙂 when do you expect a proposal?? 😀
