Simply gorgeous!!! You couldn’t have purchased a prettier one and the fact that it was your grandmas’s makes it even better!

@MissSpark:  I love it.

Honestly, I wouldn’t upgrade this ring or touch it in any way.  I’m a sentimental sap, though.  The ring, as is, would have much more meaning to me than a new diamond that was purchaed….kwim?

 

I also have a family stone in my ring.  My husband always wanted to upgrade it, but I told him never to touch it.

Wonderful!  It’s a beautiful ring, and I’m sure your grandmother would be thrilled for you to have it now!

That’s so sweet that he gave it to you, and with those words! I would never change anything with the ring, just keep it like the beautiful memory it is!

@MissSpark:  gorgeous! I also wear my great-grandmother’s / grandmother’s ring and its a very special link to them :). Personally I’ll never upgrade it as the sentamentality is more important to me than the size of the stone – just my opinion tho

I actually think it’s a great idea to keep the setting, and you and FI can choose your own round diamond to put in it – that way it’s like the ring is from both FI and grandma. Then you can have grandma’s diamond set in a pendant so it will be close to your heart :).
