This is an old ring of my maternal grandmothet whom I nevet knew – stone is missing but since DH upgraded my ring a few years ago I am going to set my original .10 diamond in it. It has an illusion setting as was popular for that era.

We had the matching set designed to look vintage, but the band on the top was my great grandmother’s.

I love all these! My e-ring was my great-grandmother’s and then grandmother’s, and me wedding band was also my grandmother’s. She died when I was pretty young and was a wonderful lady (smart, feminist college professor and mother of 4).

lolot:  I aways drool when I see your set! 

I love all these lovely vintage rings! 

my 1940’s ering I got at a vintage shop (upgrade from my original ering). i normally wear it with two half eternity bands, but am going simple lately (got this band on etsy). 

 

My recent etsy find! A 1920’s ering I am wearing on my right hand. This pic is a bit dark. The side stones are sapphires.

My E-Ring is my great grnadmothers ring (who I never met, but my Dad was very close with her).  The wedding band is my FI’s great Aunt- It’s an eternity band that just happened to be my exact size!  It has their initials and wedding date engraved in the side which I love.  We took it to get cleaned though and the jeweler said that as it is so old the stones could potentially start to fall out and the only thing to do would be to reset them.  I love the engraving so much that I don’t want to do that so we bought a new wedding band for me, but I will be using this to get married with and wear on special occasions.

Mine me isn’t an heirloom from either of our families, but it is antique. It’s from the 1920’s, bought from a jeweler that specializes in estate/antique jewelry.
