    I’d keep it gold and wear it!!! I like mixed metals, and you’ll feel so happy everytime you look down at it!

    If you’re going to have to keep getting it replated, I wouldn’t bother doing that. How does it look with the white gold? I’ve seen some interesting gold/white gold combos on WB.

    Could this be your “second” band? Ex: My wedding band has diamonds, so I don’t wear it for certain activities. If it really doesn’t look good with your ER, maybe make it a RHR.

    Just resize it and leave the gold as is. You could use that as the band you are married with and then decide if you want a second band in white gold for your everyday band.

    if you don’t like the gold, it could just be a right-hand ring and you could get a white gold band for your WB.

    I say keep it gold and use it.  My grandmother’s yellow gold wedding ring is mine too.  I was extrmely hesitant at first because of color until I smacked myself in the head for it.  I wear it everyday.  The sentinmental value trumps color by a long shot.

    Just keep it, and if it doesn’t match your ring, use it as a second band for when you don’t feel like wearing your regular one. Maybe in the wedding ceremony you can use both and wear them stacked throughout the wedding (grandmother’s band and WG band) with your e-ring on the other hand.

    I agree with all the others – keep it as your “second ring” (or even wear it every day on your right hand!) and pick out a white gold ring that matches your engagement ring (if you want a matching look on your left hand).

    On my wedding day my parents gave me my great-grandmother’s ring (who I’m named after). It doesn’t match my e-ring, so I wear my matching wedding band with my e-ring on a daily basis, and I wear my great-grandmother’s ring on my right hand whenever I get dressed up.

    I would be concerned about using a ring I felt didn’t work with my e-ring. This is my second marriage. I love, love, love my wedding band this time around. I settled for something someone else wanted me to wear the first time around.

    I know it’s such a beautiful sentiment and honour to wear her band. If it were me, I would consider having both slipped on my left hand and later, after the ceremony, slip the yellow gold one on my right finger. 

    You can then wear it alone on your left hand when you don’t want to wear a diamond (ie working out, cleaning etc). It would make such a beautiful story and memory..

    Just a thought 🙂

    keep it gold, I LOVE mixing metals, and the sentiment is even better. i’d almost feel worried about messing with a good thing.

    any pictures? would love to see the two together!

    If it were me, I’d leave the ring as it is (Aside from sizing it to fit you.)

    It’s a sentimental piece, and despite it being a different metal, you’d look at it and remember her, and the marriage between your grandparents.
