We will more than likely pass them on, as it is very common to pass down jewelry in our families. I would like to be cremated so, being buried with jewelry is not possible. I understand the emotional value, however being buried with your ring seems just a tad unfitting as there are living people who would very much like to carry on your legacy with your ring. I would much rather give it to someone I love.

If I don’t hand it down, I’d have it sold and give the money to charity.

Though everyone else in my family has been burried, I don’t like the idea.  I want them to harvest whatever they can and burn the rest.

No.  Each of my daughters wil get the ring set that their respective fathers gave me.

I want my “disposal” to be as environmentally friendly as possible, so I’ll probably have to be not wearing anything at all when that happens, lol!

I would want my ring to be passed down to somebody important anyway. maybe my niece.

Lol! This made me chuckle! I will be creamated. I’d hope to give them to someone while I was alive so I know I made them happy.

No, I will pass them down to my future daughters.

I don’t want to take up any more precious earth space, and have to pay for it. I will be creamated. Therefore my posessions will need to be removed. They will probably be given to my daughter if I have one.

We’re not having kids, so there won’t really be anyone to pass it down to. Maybe a niece or nephew if we get those, or close cousins’ kids if we have those as well. To me, the ring(s) is an important symbol of being married, and I want to be buried as a married woman. However, if I die first, I would want Fiance to have my rings, and be buried with a simple gold band on my finger instead. And vice-versa: if Fiance dies first, I want to keep his ring but have him buried with a simple gold band in its place.

Whoever dies second can take both rings with them, or otherwise decide what to do with them.

@Kant: I like that idea a lot. I’m going to bring it up with Fiance. Thanks!

I guess it depends, though mine are soldered together (so passing them on isn’t really practical unless whoever gets it wants my wedding band, too).

Nope. I thought I would want them because I could not think of parting without them, but my Fiance and I were talking and we decided that I will have no use of them after I go. I will give it to the next person in line to get married in my direct family line. I want it to stay with our last name. I’m not sure if I want to keep my wedding band or not. I’m getting a plain white gold band as a travel band kinda, so I might be burried with that, but my other wedding band with diamonds I will pass down as well

 

Also, I don’t want anyone robbing my grave!

My ring is not a family heirloom, but is vintage from the 20s and part of the reason I wanted it was bc of the history and love stories behind it. To me it symbolizes the 10 years we had together before our engagement and our new bands will represent our future. So, I will most definitely be passing mine done to my daughter…probably before I die. For her, hopefully, it will symbolize the love between her father and I and serve as a remembrance after we die.
