Hi bees. I’ve been off the bee for a while due to work reasons but I’m back.
Alot has happened in the last 6 weeks or so, the biggest in terms of marriage/proposals is that we have been offered the use of my late grandfather’s diamond ring.
My mum and I were talking about rings and how it’s so hard to find something we both love and can afford, when she mentioned that my grandfather (and name sake) left a diamond ring to my dad.
Neither me or my SO have seen the ring, both my mum and I said that we both think it would be best approached when SO asks for my dad’s blessing, dad ask if SO would like to use it. me and SO have discussed him talking to my dad, and he knows that it’s important to us all.
The reason we’re not engaged already is because of the prices of e-rings in the UK, so in theory this lessens the stresses of buying new. We’re now just waiting for SO to ask and then we can move forwards.
Do any of you buys have an heirloom which came from a grandfather/man in your family?
We think we might design or find a new setting for it, so it’s a bit of us and a bit of the family history.
