theweddingunplanner :  both rings sounds lovely and yeah please post pictures when you can. 

If I was you, as it’s not your style I would get the stones and remake something with them. Either that or just wear it as is as an occasional right hand ring. 

Not all your jewellery has to match and the fact it doesn’t makes it more interesting. People will probably ask you about it and you can talk to them about your grandmother. 

I have my great grandmas engagment ring,  was pass to my grandma who wore it for years as her engagement ring and it was passed onto me on my wedding day. I wear it was my ering or as a rhr depending upon my mood, what I am doing or who I am with lol.

I wear an heirloom ring 24/7 as my ering, which is a bit of a different situation. 

But I think it’s fine to wear different ring styles – what about wearing it on your right hand so it doesn’t compete with your normal set? Alternately, you could switch it out with your normal set sometimes to change up your look.

I have an heirloom ring (FH’s great-grandmother’s engagement ring), as well as my e-ring. I wear my heirloom ring on my right hand ring finger and it never comes off.

When we do the ring warming ceremony at our wedding with our wedding bands, the heirloom band will also be passed around for well wishes and loving energy.

blushingbee2019 :  I have seen your ring on a number of posts now, and I have to say – it is the most amazing ring I have ever seen!

I hope you don’t mind me asking but where did you get it from and what are the specs?

I have an Edwardian filigree ring that is almost 100 years old or so as my ering. It is currently getting repaired due to a stone on the side missing and there is a bit of wear and tear from generations of people wearing it. I wear it on my right hand because the ring finger on my left hand is really sensitive for some reason and I can’t tolerate wearing rings on it. I get a lot of flack from my aunt wearing it on my right hand, but that is part of sensory processing disorder associated with autism.

I wear my great great aunt’s ring from the 20s/30s everyday as my engagement ring
