Hi bees! I recently went ring shopping and we were leaning towards a certain style ring, pictured below:
Well…since then it was brought to my attention that there are some rings in the family that my grandma wants to pass down to me. The two are my grandmas engagment ring, ~0.25 ct solitare, and my great-grandma’s (who recently passed) engagement ring, a ~0.25 ct round diamond in a boxy setting. Since I’m fairly certain the two stones are almost idental size and very similar in cut I feel like it would be relatively easy to incorporate these into my engagement ring. However, I’m not having much luck finding any pictures of something that I think I would actually like.
These are a few ideas I’ve found, but neither are spot on:
I like the fact that the first ring doesn’t have the mini halos around the side stones, but I also like how the side stones are incorporated into the halo in the second ring. I also would like to keep the twisted band that my first ring pick had. I’m not sure if these things are all possible or if it would even be possible to use these family stones like this, but it’s something to be special to me and my family, so if anyone has any ideas or advice please let me know! I feel like something like this would have to be custom and I’m worried that I won’t be able to get such beautiful side detailing if I go that route…
