    @MadameX:  I would choose the one that makes you feel the happiest when you look at it.

    What about wearing your mom’s ring as a right hand ring?

    Do you have other siblings or are you an only child? If it is just you, I would accept your FI’s family ring, wear your mother’s wedding ring on your RH for your wedding day, and keep your mother’s ring to pass on to your children (if that’s in the plan!)

    Would it be possible to get the ring altered & use your Mom’s stone? Then you could have a little bit of both families in one ring. We used all heirloom pieces and melted ours down & designed our own rings. Since you really like the one from his family (it’s very pretty), you may not need to start for scratch like we did, but at least you could combine them!

    If you plan on having kids keep the one you don’t wear for them. You can always try each out for a little while and see which you feel most comfortable with.

    Lucky you! Haha. Very hard to choose though. Fwiw I think his family ring will look amazing once it’s resized and I don’t think you have to worry about it looking small or making your fingers look bigger.

    I think the first wedding set would look great on you!! It’s a beautiful! Have you thought of wearing your mom’s ring as a right hand ring? That way, you could wear both of them. Just a thought…..

    Engagement ring is supposed to come from FI, not from your folks. Can you keep mom’s ring as a sentimental RHR instead of your engagement ring? And use FI’s family ring as your wedding set?

    wear both, one engagement, one RHR.  or, can you do something else with your mom’s ring, make a pendant for a necklace?

    I would choose his family’s ring and save your mom’s for your children (either your son to give to his future bride, or daughter to give to her groom). 

    But I also agree with @FLBlonde93:.

    If reading anyone’s suggestion makes you go.. ehhhh I don’t think so – you know what decision makes you happiest.
