Aww that’s so nice of your mom!  Very cool and unique wedding band btw, I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like it.

I have my great grandmother’s ering.  It does not have a diamond in it, but it is lovely.  The gold has beautiful scroll work.  I don’t have a picture of it, but I want to have it reset with a different stone and wear it as a RHR.

VioletV:  Your mom’s rings are beautiful! And how incredibly special to have something like that gifted to you. I would be over the moon with it, especially because of the sentimental value.

I’ll post a picture of my mom’s rings. They aren’t mine yet, but she often reminds me they will be one day. I’m in no hurry, though. They’ve been on her finger for 56 years (and still counting … ).

VioletV:  I love this post! Thank you for sharing your beautiful ring. My ring, which we are in the process of sizing, in my Nana’s ring that was left to me. I wasn’t sure how I felt about the yellow gold at first but it is precious in my eyes due to the sentimental value. Congrats on your new gift!

I don’t have a photo of my mums ring, but it is a solitaire, very high setting, and a very industrial band look from the 80’s.  I am not a fan of it and her marriage was before I was born so it doesn’t have much sentimental value.  I tried to give it back to her but she didn’t want it so its just sitting in my drawer now.

She gave FI her ring in secret to propose to me.  He wanted to get something else but since I control the finances, he couldn’t hide the cash from me to save up lol.

Once he proposed we went ring shopping together and I chose a small modest ring similar to my mums but a more modern setting.  

I don’t really know what I’m going to do with her ring.  I might get the diamond reset at some’s only small though a good quality diamond.

Nice post! I love the stars engraved on the wedding band. Sentimental rings are HUGE for me. I have my grandmas ering and band and I have a minor ( ok major!) love affair with her set from the 30s. FI recently suggested I reset my stone into a setting to match it and I’m so glad he did. Now my ering matches my grandmas I feel even closer to her ( she passed away years ago). Wear those rings in good health! Here’s my ring and hers on the right.
