    Rock it!

    I wouldn't

    It competes with your set but wear it anyways

    Maybe on special occasions but not everyday

    I have another opinion

    MsGinkgo:  I would. But I wear my grandma’s ring as RHR, it’s totally different in style from my ring. It’s sentimental and important to me, so too bad for any haters:-)

    If you want to wear then go for it! You could also have it reset to a necklace, have your grandmothers stone near your heart in memory.

    I wear my grandmother’s/ mother’s engagement ring as a RHR every day. Go for it!

    I would reset it to a solitaire necklace.

    It’s lovely. Could you have it resized to fit your RH middle finger? Less engagement-y then.

    it’s a beautiful ring. If I saw that on someone’s right hand, I would just assume it’s an heirloom that was very special and worth wearing. If you are unsure about having it reset into something else, I definitely wouldn’t.

    Wear it! Wear jewelry for you. What makes you happy is all that matters IMO. I ❤️ Heirlooms. It’s beautiful!

    My cousin wears my great-grandmother’s original engagement ring on her right hand and her wedding band on the left, I say go for it! Especially since it’s a family heirloom.

    rock that rock!  I disagree about resetting it into a necklace or something else. What if you have children and want to have it as their engangment ring?  I love the history of it as it was given to your grandma. Keep it. Wear it. Enjoy it.

    You can wear anything you want as a rhr. My engagement ring I’d a halo and I plain to have a solitaire made as a rhr. So even though it may not be tradional to wear solitaires on your right hand, there really isn’t any rule saying you shouldnt. I’d go for it! It’s a beautiful ring with an antique cut diamond, and is very sentimental. Since they would be worn on different hands, I don’t think they would compete with eachother.

    Diamond RHRs are gorgeous, and there’s no reason you should not wear and love this ring. It does not “compete” with your ER; they are both beautiful rings, and there is no reason there should be any comparison or competition between them whatsoever.

    MsGinkgo:  I’d wear it but then again I basically do the same thing myself. I’ve got my own engagement ring on my right hand ring finger because I have a stand alone ring as my wedding ring on my left hand ring finger. They don’t match and are far too big to wear together anyway. So I go around with two nice rings and I don’t think anything of it. I’d love to wear an heirloom ring! I think UK-Bee’s idea of sizing it is a good one too.
