    Would love to see photos.

    BUT I too VOTED for it to be a RHRing…

    When I frist read the title I thought you might be talking about an Engagement Ring from a Former Beau / Husband

    But no, you are talking about an ERing from your current Husband

    Truthfully…

    I cannot see WHY you wouldn’t honour your Husband in this way… and the ring sounds BEAUTIFUL

    Lots of women would kill to be able to have a Diamond RHRing, and at 0.60 this one is significant and should see the light of day, not be closeted away in your Jewellery Box

    If it needs to be resized… get it done.

    And ya, down the road in like 25 years if there is a DD or DS about to get married, then sure if you want offer it up then as a choice to them… in the same way that your Grampa did for you.

    Nice tradition… and it means more in that the ring was actually worn & cherished by a loved one.

    Hope this helps,

    To @MDtoJerseyBride:  Thanks for the Photos…

    GORGEOUS Ring… rock it baby.

    That isn’t too small for a RHRing at all… RHRings come in all sorts of styles…

    And as I said in my post above… usually NOT Diamonds.

    Consider yourself well loved & blessed… wear them all !!

    @MDtoJerseyBride:  both are beautiful.  i’d wear the first ring as a rhr and then give it to your first child for their ering.

    Definitely wear it as a RHR, especially if your husband was bothered by the fact that you aren’t wearing it. It’s a great ring and it is in no way too small for a RHR or an e-ring, honestly.

    @MDtoJerseyBride:   I would wear it as a RHR until I could give it to my daughter.

    @MDtoJerseyBride:  I would have it made into a pendant, that way you can wear it everyday.  I’m not a fan of RHR for every day, that’s just my personal taste, I find multiple rings to be too much for some reason (but I also have pretty small hands!)

    I think you should definatly have it set as a neclace. something that special shouldn’t be in a box. But Its your decision ultimatly, both of your rings are beautiful!
