can someone knock some sense into me please? My boyfriend and I just got engaged. We have two kids together- a 2 week old and an 18 month old.
Im really a little bummed. Although my boyfriend (I guess, fiancé now lol) designed my setting- the diamond itself is from my nana… which is so special absolutely and I’m not trying to be ungrateful or anything- but every time I look at it I think of my family. They are the ones that introduced him to the jeweler where he got the setting designed and they gave him the diamond. So even though the setting he designed- I just feel like.. idk how to explain it… but it doesn’t feel like mine. Idk … I know I’m being stupid. Has anyone else experienced this with a family heirloom engagement ring or am I just being hormonal, irrational, and idiotic?

sophiar727 : congratulations on the baba
The ring iis beautiful and i understand how you feel
I have my grandma’s ring and even after getting it on my wweddin day in 2006 i still look at itiand think of her. I don’t wear it often bbecause of this because I don’t want to loose or damage it. I’ve got othot sets i wear and swaswabout.
However at thr sasa time I feel honoured and privileged to hhav a ring with a story strong family history and i cherish that.
So while you feel itit not your ring, it is and cherish every facet, every bit of metal and every blemish

My guess is that it’s your post partum hormones talking. With time, I think you may come to adore your ring. It’s beautiful and a wonderful combination of old nd new – your grandmother’s heirloom diamond and your fiance’s custom design.

I think it’s great that her stone was used! We used my grandmother’s stone also and it makes me happy when I look at it because I think of the effort my husband made to reset it as well as remembering how much grandma loved me and the good times we had together.
Your fiance did a great job! You have a beautiful ring!

Once you’ve worn it for a little while, I think it will feel like yours. It took me about a week or two of wearing my ring daily before it felt like mine.

The stone has been passed on to you, it is absolutely your ring. It simply has lineage behind it. Think of this creation being a collaboration of your fiancé and family. He designed what will cradle your family’s center stone, and you’ll have that for the rest of your life: your fiancé embracing your family.
