It sounds as if it’s really just not the ring for you. Definitely hang on to it, but get your own e-ring.

@Cordellia:  Normally I’m not a fan of separating heirloom pieces, but I think I would reset it in this case.

@Cordellia:  Pic of the one you’ve been eyeing?  I agree that it doesn’t sound like the right ring for you!  If you are wanting something affordable, have you considered Moissanite?

My fiance proposed with my grandmother’s ring.  With my parents blessing, he had them reset it with new platinum and a lower setting.  The jeweler said that they recommend it because with older rings, the setting can loosen over time and the diamond is more likely to fall out.  So it might be something to do if you are planning on wearing it around, as an ering or a fancy ring to wear.  I do not think it is a bad thing to reset an heirloom ring- things get old and outdated and as long as his family is ok with it, you should not feel guilty

Most important is if you will like the ring.  If you will always be thinking about the other one you liked, then it is not the ring for you.  

An heirloom ring does allow for more money to be saved and spent on other things- which was a nice perk!
