My e-ring is also my grandmothers and I’m so proud/honored to wear it!  It makes me so sad about your friend who thinks that.  I told Fiance that I didn’t want him spending so much money.  The amount of money he spends does not signify his love toward me.  My ring was purchased at the end of the depression (mid to late 1930s).  Grandma and Grandpa were married 55 years before she passed away and I can only pray that God blesses us with a wonderful marriage like they had.

I have my great-grandmothers ring as a RHR.  It is a garnet with green opals in 18k gold.  It almost looks like rosegold.

I have my grandmother’s wedding band, and I LOVE it. She’s been gone now for 13 years, and when I see it I feel close to her again. And she and my grandfather were married for over 50 years and had, by all accounts, a very loving and devoted marriage. So it means a lot to me. And I was lucky enough that it fit me perfectly, no resizing necessary. It felt like it was meant to be. <3
ETA: I believe it’s from the late 1920s.

I too, have my FI’s grandma’s ring, except he added two sapphires on either side to make it “mine” (my mom’s is sapphire with two diamonds on either side — he liked the symbolism and so do I). It’s a similar setting to

I picked out the setting for my ring, but the diamond was my FI’s grandmother’s, who he actually never met because she died before he was born. His mother inherited a ring that had two “twin” diamonds set next to each other (one being my diamond), so she had her birthstone (peridot) set into the ring she inherited and gave the diamonds to Fiance and his brother. It’s an OEC, so I love how unique it is on top of the fact that it’s a family stone. I can’t believe your friend was offended that her Fiance didn’t “spend enough.” In my opinion, family heirlooms are priceless!

@village_skeptic:  That is really pretty. I think that the addition of the sapphires was a great idea!

@village_skeptic:  Here is the wedding band that I picked out. I got it at the same estate jewelery store, and they told me that it is from the 1950s. I actually originally wanted my band to have a stone other than diamonds (emeralds, I was thinking), but this one spoke to me 🙂

Edit: Sorry about the HUGE photo. Looks like you’re viewing it through a microscope!

Wow all these rings are gorgeous!! Both my grandmothers are still around and I don’t think they had engagement rings so no dice there.

I have my grandmothers ring, although it’s not my engagement ring.  I wear it every day on my pointer finger (I know that sounds weird, but I can’t bring myself to size it smaller to fit me. I want it just how she had it, which is much bigger than my fingers)

This is my Grandma’s wedding ring, we are planning to have the gold melted down and made into a solitaire setting with her stone…I wish i knew the story behind this ring, My Grandfather was NOT one to spend money so we’re suprised that she even had a diamond!
