Hey bees, a few years ago my mum gave me her wedding ring as it was too small for and said that I was always going to be left it in the future and it was a shame to have it sitting in a drawer-I wear it as a RHR a lot. This evening my mum, with my dad’s blessing gave me her e-ring as she said she is not wearing it and she would be happier seeing it on me. I am over the moon-both rings are over 40 years old the sentimental value is priceless. It got me thinking how the trends have changed over the years and thought it would be nice to share any rings which were inherited. I will wear both rings separetly on different occasions, but iv added a picture of how my mum wore them to show you what they look like together. The diamonds are still sparkly (not good picture) all these years later!

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.

housebee: thank you. I know either have I. I get compliments on it when I wear it. It’s white gold and looks quite yellowish now but I like that about it!

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 point.it’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.
