    Absolutely, I deserve BIGGER!

    A little bit, maybe upgrade down the line

    No, it's value is in the history of it

    gingermamalife:  You can’t ever be wrong for loving a piece of jewellery especially with a story behind it! Think of all the sentiment behind the ring… It’s way more important than the size or weight of a diamond or gem.

    If you really want something with more wow factor then you guys can design a wedding band with some bling or something that represents the 2 of you.

    I personally love heirlooms and everything they represent.

    I voted no, love it because it’s a heirloom, however, I agree with others that you have options on how to proceed down the road.  You can change to a RHR, or use as part of stacking on your set, or upgrade later.  My first ER from my ex was a family ring….his mothers engagement diamond and his fathers wedding band diamonds that he made into a ring.  I learned to love it because it was sentimental.

    gingermamalife:  I would rather have a family heirloom than anything else. It is 100% unique, which, even ladies with the biggest diamond rings around, can’t say. 

    Really, I would be absolutely thrilled with that!
