So partly for fun, what would you do if you inherited a 2.2ct round diamond? It’s being willed to me (total shocker because I’m not the oldest grandchild). The ring itself is damaged from wear, so no matter what it would have to be reset.
Would you wear it as your engagement/wedding ring?
Right hand ring? (Isn’t a big diamond weird for a right hand ring though)? What kind of setting would you get?

I would wear it as an alternate ering. I don’t like rhr’s to be be bigger than my ering. For the setting, it depends on the stats o f the stone. But I would set it different than my other rings or my ering…so maybe yellow gold or rose gold.

Ring. I rarely wear jewelry other than rings. I like my sparklies right where I can see them, so I can stop and admire.

@PinkMagnolia: wow! i’d probably get it set in a necklace. Darling Husband is proud of his stone pick so out of respect for him, i don’t think i’d wear it as an e-ring unless he suggested it.

I have seen a ton of ladies wear diamonds on their right hands. I would have it reset as a right handed ring and would wear it all the time.

I would definately turn it into a new ring, lucky you!

I wonder about it being set in a pendant necklace though, what if the chain breaks??! I feel like I might lose/break a necklace more than a ring.

I would have it set in a solitaire and wear as my ering. I would keep my current one too, probaby for my daughters.

what kind of right hand ring? A solitaire? Or something that is very big (like 3-4mm) to look less engagement ring-y.

I would have it set as a stunning solitaire necklace

I’d probably have it set as a solitaire necklace, too. I’m sure you could find a chain and clasp that were sturdy enough to make sure it didn’t break and get lost.

I would have it put in a necklace I think. That’s what I’ve thought about doing with the much smaller heirloom stones that I have. Some places charge a mint for setting a loose stone, so that’s whats been keeping me from doing it!

How exciting! I would keep my ering setting, but have the new stone set in the original’s place. Maybe use my first ering stone as a right hand ring or set in a necklace. My fiance isnt sensitive to this though, if he had an issue with it, then I would probably have set in necklace so as to not upstage my ering.

depends on if i already had an ering or not – since i do i would most likely get it put in a necklace. My sister was given my grandmothers diamond when she passed. its a 1.5ct round diamond and beautiful! She had it in her engagment ring but when she divorced she had it enclosed in a casing for a necklace and it looks beautiful. I actually wore it for my wedding. you can kind of see it in this picture
If i didnt have an e-ring i would totally get it reset and use it for my ering.
