No, I will pass them on to someone who can enjoy them.

Nope.  The diamond on my finger is from my grandmother.  My sister in law has the diamond from my mom’s ring. I think it’s more useful/sentimental to pass those things along.  It’s not going to do me anygood any longer, may as well pass them on.

I agree with PP, I would want my ring to be handed down in the family.

I’m getting cremated, so I don’t think that would be able to happen. Since we aren’t having kids, I’m not sure what we will be doing with our rings. Maybe pass them on to nieces or nephews

honestly, I can’t say I’ve thought about this ever, but now that you’ve brought it up….

I don’t think I could literally bury money like that, so I will definitely pass  them down in my family rather than be buried in them.  Even if they were not expensive, I’d be dead!  I’m pretty sure whatever my children/whoever buries me decides to do will be just fine since I won’t know the difference.

I hadn’t thought about it. I don’t have or want children so that’s not a huge concern to me.

I am definitely going to pass mine down.  I would like someone in my family to be able to enjoy them 🙂

My Fiance says he’s buying me an upgrade in 5 or so years. He wants me to keep my original ring to give to our grandchildren when they are a little older and be buried with my upgrade. I still don’t know what I want to do… but I know I don’t want to be buried… I want to have my ashes spread. =/ (I think both rings will be passed down to family).

It is morbid, but I’ve actually thought about this and I would prefer to pass my rings down to my child or niece/nephew. I feel like a part of me and my relationship with DH would live on that way and it would give someone I love the opportunity to start their married lives off a little easier.

My e-ring was his grandmothers, so I would like to pass it along if the oppertunity presents itself! Maybe the wedding bands though…

We will both be cremated.

It would be absolutely silly for me to be buried with jewellry. Why have it deteriorating 6 feet beneath the ground when my daughter could be enjoying it and having a remembrance of the best mother she ever had?

Yes , I am selfish like that 🙂 

ETA: maybe that will change if I have kids

My ring was passed down to me, so I’d like to pass it down as well.
