Wonderful, congrats!!

I have an heirloom center stone–it’s been passed down for four generations and re-set for each bride. Here’s my lovely!

My mother passed away in August and my FI proposed using her ring in September. It was yellow gold and I had it rhodium plated because I prefer white gold but I don’t feel comfortable chsnging anything else about it. It is a round center with a trillion on each side. Sorry my iPad photos aren’t great.

Dang, there are some gorgeous rings in here! 

I’ve totally posted these plenty in the heirloom ring threads… but oh well! My e-ring was my great-grandmother’s, and I totally love it so didn’t change the setting or anything.  My wedding band was my grandmother’s. So happy to have this sentimental, affordable, eco/socially friendly option 🙂

@blushblossom91:  The stone was DW’s grandmother’s; we customized a new setting for it 🙂

My ring/set belonged to my FI’s mom. She asked that he propose with the ring as-is, and then we could decide if we wanted to reset the diamond or not. We decided not to touch it. 🙂 When I look at it, I am reminded of the love that resulted in my fiance, as well as his parents’ support of our relationship.

I didn’t inherit mine but it has definitely belonged to some other ladies!
