I like the chain idea for the ceremony and then moving it to your right had later on.


If I were you I wouldn’t want to change it from ring form, I too understand the sentimentality of the gold and her wearing it.

I wore my e-ring on my left and he put my band on next to my e-ring during the ceremony and I wore a ring my sister gave me on my right…..do you have to wear your e-ring on your right hand?

I immediately thought about putting it on your bouquet even before I got to that part in your post. I think that is a great idea because you won’t have to compromise your own jewerlly choices for your wedding day, and having it on your bouquet will mean she will be close to your heart as you are walking down the aisle. And when you look down, you will see your mom’s ring.

Or, you could find someone who could incorporate the ring into an interesting hair piece. A friend of mine creates beautiful hair pieces and she uses lots of different materials, feathers, beads, charms etc. I’m sure a professional could come up with some fantastic.

Or, you could get your seamstress to sew it into your dress somewhere, on the inside lining, close to your heart or something…

Just a few ideas 🙂

This may not be an option for you, depending on your religious persuasons, but a friend of mine tied her mother’s wedding ring on a ribbon and placed the ribbon in the family Bible like a bookmark with the ring hanging down. Her brother brought the Bible down and placed it where the Mother of the Bride would sit, along with one of her mother’s favorite flowers.


It was very sweet.

I think it would be wonderful to have to on your bouquet, but it’s ultimately up to you 🙂

gneiss:  I’m not engaged. I came here looking for idea as to what to do with my grandmother and mother’s engagement rings. My mother passed away in February, and, with a bunch of weddings this summer, it’s hitting me quite hard that she won’t be at my wedding, whenever that may be. I’m still debating what to do with her engagement ring for the long term, but I know what I am doing with her wedding ring when I do get married.  What a lovely idea. Now if I could just stop crying….
