Does anybody have either an engagement ring or wedding ring (or both?) with a story besides it being bought from a retailer and given as an engagement/marriage symbol? Such as an heirloom ring that’s been passed through generations, or a ring that’s made up of other pieces of jewellery? And of course, as always, pictures of your sentimental beauties!

- Wedding: April 2019 - Huntsville, AL
My ring belonged to his mother. She tucked it away after getting upgrades and wanted us to have it when we were starting to think about the next step. 🙂
Luckily for him, we are the same handsize and have similar taste, so it workedo out wonderfully.
I felt very flattered knowing that she wanted me to have it, it makes the ring perfect to me.

Yes! With my wedding ring, I used the stones from my mom’s wedding band to my dad. I’m very sad to say, my dad passed away when I was young. A few years ago my mom gave me her ring. I just got it from the jewelers and I love the new ring!

I have an inherited ring with a very dramatic story! Not a romantic one though. My ex-MIL is very much a mother to me, even though I’ve been divorced from her son for 12 years. She is very sick and knows she won’t be around much longer, so every time I see her she gives me a piece of jewelry. A coupe years ago, she gave me a .5 carat diamond engagement ring that belonged to her grandmother. Their family has always been a little… rough. Rowdy cowboys with hard lives in rural places.
So, Grandma went through a string of husbands over the years. This particular ring came from a very mean man to whom she was married to for a brief period of time. He started beating her up and one day she decided she couldn’t take it anymore, so she SHOT HIM!! The Sheriff declared it self defense, so she went free. And lived to marry again. This time to a much better man.
So even though this ring doesn’t have a sweet story, I still love it because it reminds me it’s ok to stand up for myself and be strong.

I also have my great grandmother’s wedding band with their initials and the date of their wedding (6-7-15… 1915!!!) engraved on the inside. My grandma wore it for the last 30 years and now I wear it all the time. I love the history!

Our wedding rings were made from the gold of our grandparents’ wedding rings. I considered wearing my grandma’s wedding ring but it didn’t quite feel right. Knowing that our rings are made from their rings feels perfect.

Oklahoma in the 1940’s must have been a wild place!
I love wearing it, it makes me feel connected to a line of strong women who don’t take any shit.

My RHR is my FH’s great-grandmothers wedding ring. Here it is with my engagement ring. We will be doing a ring warming ceremony at our wedding for our wedding bands and the heirloom ring will be passed along as well.
