@Miss Care Bear:  You are lucky enough to have such symbols of love (no matter how long it lasted!) and I think it is amazing that she offered the wedding ring to you. That love along the way turned into YOU! I would wear it, and thank your grandmother every day! It is not only a financial gift (now you don’t have to buy a ring) but also an emotional, family one. You will be able to pass this ring down too one day (if you choose to have children). I think it’s a priceless gift. I understand your concern about bad mojo, but it’s not like you bought this at a pawn shop after a broken 72 day marriage. This is family 🙂

I agree. This marriage,while it ended in divorce, also resulted in your father, and you! It’s family history, and it matches your GORGEOUS engagement ring wonderfully.

My center diamond is from FI’s grandmother (it was also a failed marriage) and I try to look at it as more of a symbol of the love of family. I believe superstition eats at you only if you let it. You should definitely consider this beautiful gift!

I agree with the previous posters. Not only are both rings beautiful together but they symbolize love – romantic and family. Your dad came out of your paternal grandmother’s union as did you. Just because the marriage didn’t last doesn’t mean your grandmother and grandfather loved eachother any less while they were married.Take the ring and cherish it as a symbol of love and fily history. It will look great when you get it fixed and your grandmother will be happy youhave it.

i think it’s touching to have a ring from both grandmothers.  i don’t think having a ring from a divorce should make any difference.

@Miss Care Bear:  I’ve never been a big one for thinking that jewelry could have bad karma.  It is just a ring after all and it looks so pretty with your engagement ring.  And you would be giving that wedding ring a wonderful new home with a perfect e-ring and a chance to be part of a wonderful marriage.  The part of it being a family heirloom, in my opinion, makes it all the more special.

But if you’re worried about the bad karma or it bothers you, don’t take it.  You could have a custom jewel copy it or copy it so that it will work with your e-ring better if you want them to fit perfectly.  But I always love the old world feel of rings that don’t fit quite perfectly together.
