I’ve had this for a while, but I’d thought I’d share. Unfortunately, my grandparents got a divorce a few years back. My grandma was going to sell her wedding set to a pawn shop, but instead she gave it to me. They met in 1963, when my grandpa was in the army and was stationed in Japan. My grandma had just gotten off work and was sitting at a bus stop when my grandpa walked by, saw her, and pointed at his watch then the movie theatre behind him. She couldn’t speak English and he couldn’t speak Japanese, but they went on their first date to the movies that night. A few months later, he bought the rings in a little jewelry store in Tokyo.
My grandma has tiny little hands, the rings are about a size 3 and fit perfectly on my pinky. I’m planning on getting it resized to fit me. My BF is going to propose with a ring he bought, but I want to wear her set sometimes.

I love the story of how they met – beautiful. Your rings are vintage and lovely. I can’t wait to see them sized on your wedding finger. Once you have another ring from your bf, they would make wonderful rhr’s!

That’s so sweet! What a beautiful set! It’s awesome how they fell in love even though there was a language barrier. Once you get your ring you could wear your grandmother’s set on your right hand or wear it in place of yours sonetimes. Hold on to those rings so you can pass them on to your children or grand children someday!
