My jaw sorta dropped at the first photo, and without reading I thought that was the ring you were complaining about lol. SO LOVELY! The second one is lovely, too, but the styles are so different, and I def get why you’re disappointed. Get a kick-ass sapphire wedding band to go with it!

joyfulgirl9682: I think you are being very considerate. I do think some of the suggestions like melting the ring are wayy too harsh and confrontational in this situation where your Fiance didn’t even want the stone reset.
I think it would be a good idea to discuss wearing this as a RHR and your sapphire/diamond wedding band on your left hand ring finger. Or telling Fiance that you love being included in the family with this special gesture but the ring itself isn’t exactly your style and maybe Fiance could wear it on her hand since she loves it and you both could find a ring you like for you.
But if your Future Mother-In-Law would be really sad/offended if you didn’t wear it on your left hand, I can understand not wanting to hurt their feelings. Maybe a diamond and sapphire enhancer (on top and bottom) would work as a band.

Yeah I would def not melt the ring down and have it remade. If this ring is so special they don’t even want it reset, that won’t fly. I think the best solution is to pick an awesome stand alone wedding band and wear this ring on your right hand OR save it for a future child OR have it be your FI’s ring since she loves it.

Am I the only one who thinks it’s weird to give your Fiance your mother’s ring? I can see a family heirloom, like, that of your grandmother or great grandmother who have passed away, maybe, but your mother?
That is just… eww. I don’t blame you for wanting your own ring.

@Firework: This is what I was thinking. I’m just worried it will end up being too big and crazy, so I’m hopeful I can get something delicate but still with sapphires made. If not, I will have to look into other options.

i agree with PP’s- get an AMAZING standalone wedding band with the sapphires, or have the diamond from her ring reset.
