why not take your mothers and fathers rings and make a custom one for yourself , most good jewelers can melt down any gold and make it into whatever you want

You can ask your local jewelry to melt your mom’s ring, mix with new gold  and make a complete new ring for you.  Just an idea.

@talibear:  Yea have them melt down the ring and just purchase more gold so that you have enough to make a new ring. You can probably have them custom make it in the same style as your moms ring if you want.

I had both my parents rings sized to fit me. (mom’s was a 4.5 sized up to a 6.5 and dad’s was an 11 sized down to an 8) and I took it to several places that wouldn’t touch it. I finally found this little stand in the middle of the mall who did it for me in an hour for $85/each. Not perfect, but I will get it “touched up” later by a professional when I find one/have the time. As long as it’s not pave, the rings can be sized no problem. There were a few pave stones on one of my rings and I was fine with the risk of the stones falling out – I’ll just replace them later. I just wanted to wear the rings now for sentimental reasons!

And btw, I’ve had zero problems with the stones or the prongs and I’ve worn the rings for 6 months. If you’re in or near Atlanta, I went to the Perimeter Mall to have them sized and it was a little stand outside of a pretzel place (auntie something).
