Went home this weekend and found her ring, I guess my mom left it out. I think she got married in 1918, if I’m thinking of the right person. Thought I’d share. It’s a very sparkly diamond set in white gold. Pics aren’t the greatest, sorry. And my fingers look awful.
Also, I wish I knew this existed before getting my ‘temporary’ ering (switching it out to something nicer in a year or two).

rosecut: Beautiful! It looks Edwardian. I love antique jewelry (my e-ring is vintage too) so I’m a little biased 🙂

futuremrsstraight: same. i’m surprised by how well it’s held up. very little wear and tear. even the white gold isn’t fading (but maybe my great grandma got it redipped at some point)

rosecut: in those days they made the white gold alloy more white I think. I have old white gold that was never plaTed and looks whiter than my new pieces!
it’s so beautiful! I love jewelry with a history! Enjoy!

Slick: oh interesting.
i really don’t know anything about my great grandma, so not a lot of history for me to share.
it’s not mine btw. my mom has probably hid it by now.
