How special! It is a beautiful ring and it is wonderful that it has the extra meaning!

That’s beautiful! If it’s yours, I would save it and get an engagement ring to match it one day 🙂

That is a beautiful band! My set is very similar; above is the engagement ring. You can’t see from this angle, but it has the same triangle designs on each end and the milgrain edging. The style is 1930s Art Deco, and the bead diamonds are not as sparkly because they’re Old European cut rather than brilliant (Brilliant became popular in the 40s, as jewelers learned more about getting maximum refraction from the stones).  I love the shapes and symmetry of Art Deco jewelry! I would definitely hold onto that piece if I were you (:

@kgirl91:  Omg it’s beautiful! I would be so touched to have found that and be able to wear it as my wedding ring. Family heirlooms are so so so special.

@kgirl91:  Wow, that’s beautiful! i’m finding it really surprising that it belonged/belongs to your grandma because I guess that means it’s quite old (probably over 50 years, right?) and it looks so modern! It’s really lovely and I hope you get to make proper use of it one day *wink wink*.

@kgirl91:  That’s so beautiful! You see a lot of milgrain detail in the rings of today as well. It fits you perfectly – perhaps you should use it one day!

The oldest piece of jewelry I have came from my grandmother as well.  It’s a bracelet, and it shares some characteristics of your ring and is probably from the same general time period.  It has sapphires and diamonds and is platinum.

The round stones are probably an old mine it which is why they don’t sparkle as much. It may also just need a good cleaning. Looks very 1930s to me with the milgraine and geometric designs. An antique shop may be able to help you pin point it more.

@kgirl91:  maybe they bought it used at a pawn shop or second hand shop.

The beauty of older stones are they sparkle like mad in candlelight. 

Give it a try 🙂
