    just because its her mother and your grandmother does it make it any less important to you than it is to her. Keep the ring, but explain to her that you’re sorry but it’s really sentimental to you and the only thing you have. show some sympathy, but she’ll have to get over it.

    It is yours now, so I wouldn’t give it to your aunt.

    Definitely agree, she freely gave it to you, can’t come back month’s later and ask for it,

    She shouldn’t have offered it if she didn’t mean it. It’s yours and you’re attached to it. I would keep it.

    It means so much to you…why would you give it up?  You love it and wear it to remember  your grandmother.  It would be different if you stuck it in a jewelry box. You have as much right to it as your aunt; especially since she gave it to your mom and has changed her mind. I don’t see how you deserve it less than your aunt’s daughter. Do what is in your heart, but it sounds like you shouldn’t feel guilty for keeping it.

    Keep it. Your mom was being more than generous and very reasonable by offering the band, and if she doesn’t want that I think you’re probably right that she’s planning on giving it to someone else.

    Your aunt has no more right to it than your mother does.  The two of them decided that your mother should take it so now it’s hers to do with as she will, (give it to you.)  At this point your aunt can’t ask for the ring “back” especially because it was never hers to begin with.

    SHE gave up the ring, and your Mom gave it to you. It’s yours. I can tell you will treasure this and always have it as a reminder of your grandma. Don’t let her melodramatics ruin that for you.
