Maybe I’m just missing my Mum a bit today (who lives interstate). I’m very blessed to have been gifted her engagement ring many years after she divorced my Dad. Thought I’d show you the differences between hers and mine – so sweet!
Enjoy and please share your Mum’s e-rings too if possible! Would love to see them.

@Charbelle: moms ring and my ring. Moms is yellow gold with a “striped” band of hammered and satin textures. The far left is my late maternal grandmothers that was gifted to me just before the wedding (it’s about 4 sizes too small and contains 3 small old mine cut diamonds.)

My Mum didn’t have an engagement ring, but I think that this post is lovely so I’d like to follow it 🙂

I wish I had a picture of my mom’s. Her first, from 1969 (not my dad) was a really pretty wide filigree setting in yellow gold.
Hers from my dad I am indescribably sentimental about. It is a yellow gold setting with a band that wraps around the center stone and a small sapphire side. I will try to find a picture of it. She offered us the center stone from it, but I couldn’t bear to take the ring apart, because the setting is so my dad, and he designed it.

My mum doesn’t have an e-ring (it’s not common in the South Indian tradition, they have necklaces called ‘mangal sutras’ instead). At least not in her generation. if I had a photo of that I would post it!

First pic is my mum’s, second is mine.
I am going to wear my mum’s e-ring as my something borrowed and return it to her after the ceremony. My parents will celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary in February.

Your e-ring is almost the same as mine!
My mother in law’s ring is very similar too, haha!

My center stone was my mom’s! It’s been passed down through 4 generations now and re-set for every bride. It used to be a very simple, classic yellow gold solitaire–she was a little horrified by my blingtastic halo re-set, lol. (I wish I knew what it looked like when it was my grandma’s and my great-aunt’s!)

Also commenting just to follow! I don’t have a picture but my mother has a 1/2 carat round cut in yellow gold and was married in the mid-1980s.

I don’t have a photo of my mums ering, and I had the diamonds removed (it was a cluster) to use in my wedding band. She passed away 26 years ago and I am excited to be able to repurpose her ring.
