The original “stacking” can be seen right here, ladies. This thing swallows up a knuckle! They are all soldered together. As a little girl I loved her set! It means so much to me to inheriit her rings.
Now I just need to figure out what to do with it/how to potentially wear it. I’ve thought about taking the two outside “tiara” type rings and making them one ring that I’d wear on my right hand. I just don’t wear yelow gold, so I’d probably have to get them dipped, too. But then what to do with the engagement ring/wedding band?
On the flip side, I have also considered updating it so that I would just wear her engagement ring/wedding band on my right hand without the tiaras around it. Then what to do with those?
But the other side of me gets all sentimental and thinks I shouldn’t separate them at all because she chose this and it’s lovely in it’s own way. What would you do with this set?

How cool! I would leave them soldered and wear them as is on my right hand occasionally – like when you are going out somewhere nice. Those rings say “take me to the opera!” Lol. Does the stack fit your right hand??

I would separate the two tiara styled rings and wear them together on my right hand. I wouldn’t think of rhodium plating. When yellow gold is rhodium plated, it “bleeds” through very quickly – much more so than white gold. There is real beauty in the rich hue of yellow for that piece.
I would consider matching my watch/earrings etc. by going two-toned. That way, you have the best of both worlds.

howtobeawife: I think your ring is absolutely stunning. Are the ends by the crown high enough to slip a flat Platinum band under, so that the bands would be “hugging” the body of the ring?
If so, the Platinum could peak through the scalloped part of the crown.
Please see how that looks before you change anything. It’s just too precious as it is to change anything at all.

wrkbrk: majorairhead: I have to get the rings resized to fit my right hand. She had tiny fingers 🙂
womanofsubstance: Thanks for the tip about not getting yellow gold rhodium plated!
ann.reid.9277: No, I don’t think I could squish anything under the tiara parts. But that was a good thought!

wrkbrk: Yes! My thought exactly!! 🙂 “Take me to the opera!”
howtobeawife: I would leave them soldered for a bit, if they stay that way after resizing. Then, if you find you never wear it like that, you could separate them and then play around with them. Stack them all kinds of different ways until you find a combo that you like. What a lovely thing to inherit.

Fizzy8: So I found out that in order to get it resized they need to cut the rings apart and resize them individually. Then it would be a matter of do I get them resoldered back together or make my own new ring from her set. But I think I’m leaning more towards keeping them the way she had them (soldered together). It’s so hard to decide!
