    Don’t let one dozy woman’s comments upset you you were so happy before. I would love it if I could wear my Nan’s wedding band I think you’re very lucky and I think it’s so special that your hubby to be is wearing his grandfathers. Why are you letting what this lady said upset you? Please don’t x

    Ignore her!! Use your grandmother’s ring! I’m sorry, but don’t let other people tell you how you should feel! Wear your grandmother’s ring proudly, that has so much more value than some ring you pick up at a shop. Can we see pics? 🙂

    I wear my Grandmother’s wedding ring. She may be dead now but she wore her ring through 40 years of happy marriage. As well as having a part of her with me, I hope that my marriage will be as long lasting and beautiful as hers.

    Don’t let the stoopid woman put you off.

    I’m so sorry i accidentally voted that it’s wrong. I think it’s beautiful and it’s sentimental and forget other people. I can’t believe a professional would’ve used her opinion like that. It is none of her business so I hope you will make a complaint against her for whatever it’s worth. Unbelievable!

    Wow that woman was incrediy rude, I imagine she’d be in total disgust at how many women inherit their erings and wedding bands. Pls don’t let her stulid remark get to you, the fact that the ring was your grandmother’a is even more reason to wear it proudly. when we were planning out wedding my MIL plef out a box with both Dh’ grandmothers erings and wedding bands, she said his grandmothers had wanted to pass on their rings to any of the grand kids getting married except my Dh forgot about it when he proposed and bought me my own ering. anyway itried them on and his maternal grandma’s band fit and was so pretty I chose it asy wedding band. I love that it has a history behind it and that it will continue to be passed down, it has their wedding date engraved on it and even says “to J” (her name was Julia). Whenever people find out it was his grandmothers I’ve never gotten any bad look, everyone’s always complimented and think it’s sweet. 

    Your grandmother’s ring sounds beautiful, can we see a pic of it?

    I wear my grandmother’a engagement ring. There is absolutely no reason you shouldn’t wear it. That lady is nuts! I think it makes it special to wear a family heirloom.

    MrsEmployed:  oh my god, how ignorant is she???? I’ll have you know that not a day goes by where I am not dying of jealousy that my cousin owns my grandmother’s engagement ring. You wear that baby with pride and remember her fondly when you think of the generations of love that have passed down with that ring.

    That woman needs to learn some manners and keep her big, fat, ignorant, base, classless mouth shut.

    Wear your grandma’s ring with pride.  I think it’s great that you’re both wearing heirloom rings.  The clerk was rude, and she should have kept her opinion to herself.

    What the sales clerk said was disrespectful and wrong.  Your wedding band is a family heirloom, it has a history and immense sentimental value that this narrow minded sales oriented and highly disrestpectful woman failed to see.  Please don’t let that overshadow the pride and sentiment of wearing your grandmother’s ring.

    I wear my grandmss wedding ring on my right hand sometimes as its too delicate and worn for everyday. Doesn’t the fact that she’s passed make it MORE special? Smh at that weird sales clerk!!

    That is the rudest thing I’ve ever heard. Heirloom rings are fairly common as wedding or engagement rings. I’ll have FIs grandmothers engagement ring and his sister plans to use the wedding band when she eventually gets married. She was trying to sell you a matching band and was made she wasn’t going to get commission. If you love the band and it makes you feel special, then that is your band!
