This one’s mine. It’s not super old, but it was his mothers (she passed away and I never got to meet her) and we would like to also pass it to our children one day.

@beetee123:  Yea, I’m personally a fan of yellow gold, but I can see how white or platinum can really bring out the sparkles in the gem. πŸ™‚

And that ring you posted is absolutely lovely. If your ring is even half a detailed as that one I’m sure it will be a stunner

this was my original engagement ring. rubies and diamonds set in platinum. it’s very antique. my grandmother passed this ring to my mom when she turned 16 and my mom gave this ring to me when i turned 16. of course at 16, i didn’t really care for it. so when i got engaged, this was my e-ring.

I have a whole bunch of estate jewelry that was passed down to me from my mom and step mom. This is the only picture of them I can find.

I have a sapphire and diamond ring from my step mo (Third row, 4th from the left),  a  marquis cut black diamond from my great grand mother (Third row, furthest right), a small opal from my mom (second row, 4th from the left)  a gold puzzle ring that I can’t figure out how to put back together, a ruby from my mom as well (third row, second from the left). And I will eventually get my grandmother’s engagement ring and my mom’s engagement ring (one sapphire one diamond). I wish I had some pictures of them, because they are super pretty pieces. I find that older rings are so muc more intricate and sturdier. I love wearing estate pieces. Now if I could only convince my SO that ‘estate’ does not mean ‘unwanted by someone else!)

@beetee123:  as much as i love this ring, i didn’t really like it as an engagement ring. right now, we’re in the process of ordering a new setting and i just received a brand new stone! πŸ™‚ i didn’t go with a gemstone this time. it’s very classic and timeless.

@beetee123:  OP that is such a beautiful ring. I love Edwardian rings and that one is just stunning.

@somethingaquamarine:  haha yes they are! They orignally came on a necklace, and then I noticed that I could fit them on my finger and they joined my ring collection. I wear the Ravenclaw one a lot.

My Fiance purchased mine from an estate jewelry store. Its from the 1950s or 60s.  I was never keen on getting a diamond, and I absolutely adore my unique halo setting.

@beetee123:  well they’re over a decade old, does that make them estate pieces? πŸ˜‰
