This is a little morbid, but as I have my hubby’s great grandmothers engagement ring I would like both of them to be passed down through the family.

No. I want to be cremated and I would love to pass my rings to my children – I think it is a lovely gesture and bonds the family long after some members are no longer present 🙂

I will leave mine to my daughter. They are of no good to me dead!

I will probably pass them on to a child. We talk about an upgrade maybe at some point so hopefully my original e-ring will go one of our children. I would love it so much if my daughter (currently a hope) could wear it.  DH is sure he’s going to die before me if that is the case I plan to have this done….http://www.lifegem.com and have a ring made. This will be what I’m buried with.

I’ll pass mine down to family.

I’m leaning towards creamation instead of burial. Given the option that my dead body be burned or rot, I think I prefer burned.

I want to be buried with my wedding band on–it’s just plain gold w/ no stones, so it’s not like I am burying something expensive. Same with my husband’s wedding band.  My engagement ring, however, I do not want to have buried–if we have children, then I would want one of them to have it, otherwise my sister.

Hmm that’s kind of a tough question…

I remember when my grandfather died. He had been in the hospital for 2 months with cancer prior to his death, and had taken off his wedding band and left it somewhere at home because he lost a lot of weight and it wasn’t tight anymore. After he died, my poor grandma was frantically trying to find it in the house so he could be buried in it – it was so important to her. She never did find it in time, and has always been really upset with that.

I think I’d want to be buried with it, because it’s something I’ll wear my entire life. Even though it will just sit in the ground with my rotting body… it’s kind of wasteful… but I guess I’m sentimental that way. Maybe that would change if we ever had kids?

I don’t plan on being buried, I want to be cremated, so I would like my rings to be passed on to my children! Even those who have been buried in my family pass on their rings and are not buried with them.

I plan to have them passed down to children/nieces/nephews. I did make Fiance promise that if after I die he decides to remarry, he is never allowed to give my ring to another woman (romantically). Which is a given. But, if I were to die young I would want Fiance to have the opportunity to be happy and loved again. Man, it hurts my heart to just type that.

I have no human children….though I suspect my little girl chihuahua would LOVE to have my rings….

My plan is to make sure my nieces and nephew get my jewelry. When my fiance proposed to me, he gave me his mom’s size 4 heirloom rings. I wear a size 8 (or 8.5 depending on the day) so that ring set will probably go to my nephew. (My fiance is an only child, and he has no children either) I think it would be neat if he gave it to his future bride, even if she decided not to wear it!  We’ve ordered my wedding set- which will go to my oldest niece. My other diamond solitaire will go to my youngest niece.

My fiance loves to buy me jewelry, so I suspect we will buy other stuff as the years pass…I sure hope none of my rings end up on my dead body, to be put in the ground.
