In a previous post i talked about how honored and humbled i was that my grandma gave me a family heirloom to use to make my wedding band.
now i need some jewelry help! The band is 5 diamonds that were originally on a diamond pin, they are all different cuts, slightly differnet sizes. Any suggestions on how to add some continuity to the ring? Do you think i should leave as is with imperfections, make into a jacket for my e-ring?? All thoughts and comments welcome, if you have pictures or examples that would be great! Below is a pic, and thers another in the link to the previous post.
THANK YOU BEES

I think it looks beautiful just as it is, but it’s a little harder to tell with your e-ring right next to it.

I think I would leave it as it is, too. Could you maybe show us a more close up pic of the band? From this pic, I can barely tell that the diamonds are different shapes/sizes.

i will try and take a picturee with my actual camera and not just my phone and see if that helps.

I love the “history” of the ring and think that you should leave it as is to be honest with you. Maybe one day you can give it to your granddaughter as it was given to you….

I think it looks great the way it is and has such a story behind the piece. I vote to leave as is.

i am tempted to leave as is, the only problem is they don’t flesh together at all and i think i’d get annoyed… . Some options i’m considering:
1) leave as is
2) as jewler to leave pretty much as is but create way for them to flesh together
3) add diamonds and turn into half eternity band

I think the sentimental value of it is worth keeping it as is. Maybe you and your grandma can get together for lunch or coffee some weekend and you can try to learn more about the ring and the pin the diamonds came from. Maybe see if she has any photos of her/your family wearing either? It would be a fun way to get more history on the ring, maybe make a little note/letter about it, and then you’ll have an amazing history and sweet story if you choose to someday pass the ring on.

I would not change a thing. Think of the story behind it and it may bring bad luck… plus it looks great together.
