Is anyone else glad the holidays are FINALLY over? I had to put wedding planning on hold for two months because I work in retail but on Christmas Eve, I got a super special surprise!
We were sitting around the table with my fiance’s family talking about just about anything when we started talking about what the boys were going to do for wedding bands… (His little brother is getting married this year also…) His dad mentioned that he still had his father’s ring and he’d always wanted to turn it into something new – as it sits, the ring is huge and a largely outdated style for the modern man. When my fiance and I first met, his grandfather was in the hospital and after two months, he passed away, but I never got to meet him. This was the first time I ever saw my fiance cry. He regrets not taking me to the hospital in those first couple months. When I told his father this story that night, he said he would love for us to have it to make his wedding band out of! I’m so excited about having something so special to help eliminate regret by still including his grandfather in our relationship somehow!
There’s even enough gold in the ring to create an anniversary band that matches the set I have (my ring came with a band already)!

I don’t have a photo of the original yet but hopefully we’ll be at the jeweler sometime soon to figure out what style he’d like it turned into and get estimated costs!

That’s awesome! We are doing something similar. Both of my parents and FI’s mom have passed away. We designed my engagement ring to include diamonds from both of their engagement rings. We’ve talked about melting the gold down from their rings and using it for FI’s band. Both of our grandfather’s passed away within 2 months of each other, so maybe we can include his grandpa’s band into the mix as well! Post pics if you have them!

What a great story, it made me tear up! That will be amazing and so sentimental. Definitely will make some great heirloom jewelry to pass on to your children or grandchildren. I’m very excited for you guys and can’t wait to see the new rings 🙂

No photos yet but I’ll definitely be snapping some before and after… It’s still in his dad’s possession… I told him it’d be safer that way until we go to the jeweler because we live in a small mobile home right now and little things tend to get lost.
