I sort of do? The centre diamond and the gold is from a ring my dad had given my mom. We had it worked into a new setting, which happens to also be very vintage-inspired so it also looks like an old family heirloom.

Family stone yes in my engagement ring. I kept my grandmother’s setting in case I ever want to restore it and wear it or if my daughter wants it. It desperately needs a reshank and a polish

My mom gave me her grandmother’s opal ring when she died. The ring was very old and in need of repair so the stones wouldn’t fall out! 

I also inherited my dad’s mother’s plain wedding band and my mother in law’s plain wedding band. All 3 sat in my jewelry box untouched for many years. Finally, I decided to melt down the gold and have a new ring made. So….I know the history behind the current ring…and although it is not an antique, it does have a lot of sentimental value and meaning to it. I will give it to one of my children when I pass away.

I wear my mother’s wedding ring and one of her two engagement rings (neither from my dad LOL), and my grandmother’s massive 18k gold band and also her 25 point Belcher set engagement ring.

I love wearing them all.

The gold one was my great grandmothers, it belongs to my grandmother now, she says when she passes I will get it. It’s on my hand so I could see what it looks like on me.

I have my mum’s wedding set. I also have my dad’s wedding band which is the really thick gold one. The thin gold one was my gran’s.

I do – my grandfather’s (my dad’s dad) wedding ring will be my wedding ring. I have worn it a few times on my right hand though.

I love the history and sentiment behind family rings!

The solitaire was my maternal grandmothers engagement ring from the 1950s, the three stone ring was my fiancé’s maternal engagement ring, supposedly from the 1930s

This is my mom’s ring given to her as a wedding gift by er older sister. It isn’t common for russian men to give engagement rings to their women, so unfortunately, my mom didn’t have one (although she truly deserves all the diamonds) she wore this ring along with her wedding band. I think I’m gonna pass this ring on to the generations. It is a pink ruby and yellow+white gold ring, made in the USSR, and it’s nice to have a piece of home and your mom when you’re on the other side of the world. I believe my mom is also giving me my grandparents’ wedding bands, which I am hoping to use when I get married, as long as my boyfriend (and hopefully my future husband) and my family don’t mind. But for now, I am a waiting bee

This was my mother-in-law’s engagement and wedding ring (now mine). I’m not 100% sure, but I think it’s from the ’60s or early ’70s.
