I like your original ring the best, but I think it’s fine to wear your grandma’s ring until yours gets fixed or redone. I’m going to be honest though, it does look dated to me. Not sure where the third ring fits in.

You could put the diamonds and metal from both your original e-ring and your grandma’s ring toward the purchase of a new, higher clarity ring.

If you don’t feel your ring is safe while you wear it then it will nag at you incessantly.  It’s tough with an heirloom.  I don’t know if I would take it apart or melt it down since thenit has lost its personal meaning and maybe you could pass it on to your kids? I would just start fresh with a new ring design.

NonannaS:  I think I misunderstood.   Your original ring was not an heirloom?  The stand in is?  I just saw you post a pic of that on another thread today and admired it.  It looks like an authentic vintage ering to me.  It looks great!  I would  go with it if it fits well and you like it well enough.  I would have a jeweler look it over closely though to be sure the stones are secure.

Your Grandmother’s ring is gorgeous and I think it is a great idea to wear it while you save up to re-make your original ring!

NonannaS:  yes, i am so glad to hear say that, don’t touch your grandmas ring! I love it.

In time when you have the funds for the upgrade to your ring, you can wear that — something to look forward to. But in the meantime your grandmas ring is so pretty, so special.

NonannaS:  I like the large yellow orange stone ring as a stand in. But I like colour. All rings are stunning either way

Your grandma’s ring is beautiful and has so much sentimental value!  I would leave it intact and wear it until your upgrade is ready.

Your grandmother’s ring is stunning and I think it looks vintage, not necessarily dated. I would rock it.
