A ring that my late grandfather left to my father. I remember my grandfather wearing the ring all the time! I’m either going to wear it on my right hand or have it attached to my bouquet.

My pearl necklace and earrings are my something old…how old does your "something old" have to be? Really old? Heirloom? We were burglarized when I was a kid, so my mom has no jewelry to pass down… 🙁

My grandmother, who passed away before I was born, designated a fabulous emerald and diamond cocktail ring for me. I will carry it in my bouquet as I walk down the aisle in her memory and in honor of those women in my life who have survived breast cancer.

My "something old" will actually act as 3 roles. My mom made two gold bangles from her gold jewelry that she received from my maternal grandmother on her wedding day as a gift to me and my sister (she’s also getting married this year). So, the bangle will be "something old, something new" and I might borrow the other bangle from my sister, so "something borrowed."

I have a ring that was passed down to me and my mom is giving me the handkerchief with sixpence she had on her wedding day.

I’m really excited about my something old! It’s a gold heart-shaped charm (not a locket, it doesn’t open) which currently lives on my mother’s charm bracelet (a gift from her grandmother). My great-grandmother (mother’s mother’s mother) teethed on it, so there are little baby toothmarks in it. There is a monogram on it in curly script, but we’re not able to identify whose monogram it is – we think it might be my great-great -grandmother’s, it fits with her maiden name. I’ll be attaching it to a (not-charm) bracelet for the wedding.
