I have an engagement ring from my great grandmother. It’s beautiful and it’s something I hate having locked in a safe, but I’m not sure it’s RHR material – it’s very obviously an engagement ring and I’m afraid it competes with my wedding set. I’d love some opinions. Top left is my set, bottom left is my GG ring and for reference the right is them next to each other.

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:-)

Totally wear it! I weary mom’s set sometimes as rhr . Also my grandmother’s. It is beautiful and should be enjoyed!

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.

I’ve thought about having it reset, but I love the setting. The band has really subtle details on the side, I don’t know if there’s a way it could be reset but have that preserved.
those sets are gorgeous.

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.

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.
