Originally I had planned to buy a white gold eternity wedding band to pair with my white gold halo engagement ring. Now I have had a change of heart and am planning to wear my grandmother’s platinum custom-made wedding band from the early 1940’s on my left hand and switch my e-ring to my right hand since it has much more sentimental value to it. It’s even in the shape of a bow! Do any other bees currently wear or are planning to wear a heirloom or vintage ring and if so please post a pic!
Here is a picture of my grandmother’s ring. It still needs to be cleaned, polished and re-soldered back together.

@janie-janie and @Sweet.Sugar.Rose: Thanks! My grandparents have been married for 67 years, so I’m hoping this ring will bring my Fiance and I good luck for a long and healthy marriage!
@awagy86: Gorgeous ring!

I actually have 2. When we got engaged 2.5 years ago, Fiance bought this one:
It isn’t vintage, but it is Deco-style. I know what he spent on it. It wasn’t much, but it means so much to me. It is on my right hand, where it will stay.
We are getting married in less than three weeks (YAY!!!!), & now I have a 2nd one, which is from the 50s. I will wear a plain gold band under it:
He knows my style so much 🙂

My fiancee & I always talked about getting engaged. I described to him the type of engagement ring that I would like .. if he someday decided to propose. He had my vintage style engagement ring custom made by a local jeweler .. the band is carved with vintage detail .. I LOVE it!

Here’s my engagement ring (though you may be have grown tired seeing it).
It’s FI’s great grandmother’s engagement ring from the 1930s. His great grandfather bought it on the Atlantic City boardwalk for $100.

My grandmother inherited this from her aunt and passed it on to me. I love it. Mr.ND’s ring is also his late grandfathers.
@Demarca11: I love the details on the old rings. It’s not around as much anymore.
@awagy86: Really pretty ring! Do you have a close up? i can’t tell if it’s a lot of detailing or small stones?
@summerteeth: I totally love your 2nd one. It’s very unique!
@CaydenceC: I like the side diamonds. Does your band sort of split near the basket?
@Rouquine: What a cool story (and a great price!). Do you have paperwork from it? I wish that my family would’ve kept track of the old documents, I think they’d be so fun to look at.

@indibee: This is the closest shot I have though not very clear. It’s a mix of detail and small stones. There are 3 small stones on either side of the center stone in the details on the side.

@Rouquine: Your ring is gorgeous! It reminds me a lot of my ring. Do you have a picture of the side of your ring?

This was my grandmother’s ring. The wedding band is just a plain gold band. I haven’t had it sized yet so I don’t have any pictures.

This is my ring. (big pictures…) The band is brand new, but the stones are all from his grandmother’s ring.
Her first (late) husband bought it for her when they were vacationing in…Costa Rica in the early 70s, I believe
