@wisher558:  My fiancée’s e-ring was made new from rings that were my mom’s and grandma’s, and some other gold my family contributed (earrings that had lost their mates, etc) and a new sapphire.  It’s old, new, and blue.  She just needs to borrow something – perhaps I’ll lend her my love of attention. 😛

Also, where does one find a sixpence!  LOVE IT!

You could try ebay.

 

I know here in the UK they are easy to find though I have heard of people substituting other coins such as a similar sized coin of local currancy or from the country their familiy originated from.

 

EDIT: If you find one minted before about 1920 they are also made from 925 silver

@clumsylawyer:  I’ve found there are tons on eBay, and there is actually a website that sells nothing but sixpences!

@clumsylawyer:  How lovely! I’m wearing my grandmother’s gold and pearl bracelet as my something old (my sister borrowed it for her wedding). I don’t have a something borrowed yet, it’s a bit of a hard one because I don’t really want to ask someone for something…
