If you are determined to use the stones in a different way instead of keeping the heirloom ring intact, I think your idea is great. An eternity band would be beautiful. However, regardless of what you decide to do with the stones, make sure that you have the jeweler who works with it give you the original setting back, intact but sans stones. That way you can keep the actual heirloom ring and if at some point you or anyone else in the family decides that they loved that ring, they can either use the original setting and put new stones in, or they can have a copy of the setting made. In other words, don’t destroy the setting even if you use the stones for other rings.
