I think its beautiful! I’m not sentimental but I’d have a hard time selling something like that! Though what would be the difference remaking it vs making another piece of jewelry ? Do you see yourself wearing one over the other ? Or what about price difference ? As long as it gets worn or loved 🙂 (though if you were tight on cash then I’d lean towards selling assuming youre not attached to it )

I don’t know if this may be considered harsh, but I’m the kind of person that doesn’t hold  too much sentimental value in family pieces. It’s my belief that I think when someone gives you a gift, they wanted to be useful in your life, however you see fit. If The ring is not useful for you right now as it is, then you should use it in the form in which it is useful for you , And if that form is in a currency, I don’t see a problem with that. There are many other ways to remember your grandmother (Pictures for me are very important). Remember that you also have numerous other pieces of jewelry to remember her by. Just my two cents.

@ChocolateLime:  i would make it into a beautiful pendant or brooch. to have something so beautiful from such a relative is very rare – i would never sell something like that. you can always save up for the band you want, but once you sell that piece, you can’t ever get it back.

I would never sell that. How beautiful. How lucky you are!

Make it into a necklace or better yet, save it for your future daughter or daughter in law. Keep it in the family. It will mean a lot to someone along the way.

Do not sell it. You should continue the tradition and pass it on. PS it could be close to the cost of having the ring restored to get the necklace or whatever made Unless the necklace is real plain. I would only sell it if you were flat broke and were in a bind.

I would have it restored and wear it as a RHR.  It is so pretty…I love it!

@ChocolateLime:  I would get a second option on the restoration. £750 sounds very high. Was thins through a high street jeweller or a independant one?

I have to say, i  dont hold too much sentimental value in things, i’d sell it, im sure your grandmother would want you to have what you want, and if that means selling it, then she would be happy

I would take the head of the ring and have it made into a pendant. That way you are not changing the look of the ring, but changing the ring into something you would wear more.< no idea if that makes sense, but it did in my head 🙂
