    @missmonsterjeep:  I’m pretty sure it is possible, I don’t know how much it would cost,  it would depend on if they needed to add extra gold/diamonds etc. I would suggest getting quotes from a few different jewelers, as sometmes there is a large price difference from one jeweler to the next.

    If it were me, I’d keep the ring as is.  Are you planning on having children?  If so, if you have a daughter, that would make a kick-ass birthday gift for a 16th birthday or something.

     

    I’m a sentimental sap, like you.  I really treasure the jewelry that my mother and grandmothers have given me over the years.

    I think it would be easiest/cheapest to have it re-purposed into a necklace by taking off the band and adding a small loop at the top.  Just an idea.

    I support the necklace idea because then it retains the shape of the original object you loved 😀 I would also consider the possibility of just alternating it as a RHR off and on with your mother’s set. I have a diamond promise ring from FI that I have had for 6 years, so I understand not wanting to be apart from it :/ and I do think it is a lovely piece of jewelry to keep for family/posterity

    ps love your ring!! 😀

    How do you think I feel? My FH gave me rings as gifts for each anniversary, weve had 6. 🙂 I alternate on my RH and wear as a necklace on special occasions. I plan on giving one to my future daughter(s). That ring is beautiful, you shouldn’t melt it and remake a new ring IMO.

    Keep the heart and use the gold of the ring to turn it into a necklace
