No idea on the size but, that ring looks just like my grandmother’s engagement ring that she gave me a couple years ago. Same style, with the same itty bitty diamond and likely all my grandfather could afford as well. Very sweet. It’s great that you’re making it into your own ring. I was thinking of ways to incorporate my grandmother’s ring into my ensemble somehow as my “something old.”

Oh it’s beautiful. And I am actually a bit sad you’re melting it down. But I LOVE vintage and antique rings, so I understand if it’s not your style. What a beautiful idea.

Have you considered making them into a piece of jewelry that incorporates them as is?  Tiffany Marx, a jewelry designer, did this for someone and I thought it is the sweetest tribute.

I am guessing around .08 as I have a vintage 3 stone similar star cut w/ diamonds set in and they are .08 size. My first e ring wad ta .08 solitaire with a heart wrap wedding ring. It has been upgraded to around .2 and the little diamond will be reset in an antique yg fillagree illusion setting solitaire mount I inherited. Here is my 3 stone…

I’m a fan of super petite bezel rings.  Maybe something like this?  Whatever you decide will be beatiful!

BrookeCas:  I also like old rings for what they are.  I’d speak with a jeweller to see if there’s any way to honour its original setting while making it suitable for you to wear. 

I wear my late grandmother’s wedding band as an RHR.  It’s 1 tiny diamond with two even tinier diamonds on either side.  And its two toned (way back then she was on trend!)  The ring itself is yellow gold, but the setting is a white/silver metal (not sure if its white gold… its very white/silver).  It’s about 3/4 of a size too big, but I can’t deal with the idea of resizing it. It stays on fine, but I don’t wear it if I do anything physical.  

I love that she’s with me.  And I’m wearing 5 generations of wedding bands on my wedding day.  My own, obviously, one of my mother’s (she has a double band, I will too), my grandmother’s, my great grand mothers and my great-great grand mothers.  My sister has my great great grandmother’s engagement ring (we think its from the 1880s or so.)  It’s gorgeous.  It also has a teensy diamond.  The band is too thin right now to wear and the ring is way too big for her, she has to get it reconstructed.

I don’t know if I could change the ring if it were me because I can be quite sentimental and the meaning behind it is so sweet being that your father gave it to your mother. I think it would be really neat to keep it as is and  wear it on a chain as a symbol of rememberance. and someday you could maybe pass it along to one of your children if you decide to have any. I have 2 angel babies and I wear a chain that has their birthstone and two tiny baby rings as a remembrance and I absolutely love the meaning behind it…. makes me feel like they are still a part of me.

majorairhead:  Not yet.  I will after the wedding.  My bands are almost done, but all the other bands are at my parents’ place (except my grandmothers, obviously, since I wear it every day.)  This is one of the ‘little’ wedding details that I love the most!

BrookeCas:  Oh, I just love that ring! I don’t know the answer as far as size—but as is, I find both the stone and setting so sweet, and special.

majorairhead:  Wow! I LOVE your 3-stone as well. Very unique and cool—haven’t seen one like it anywhere.
