Love your ring, OP! That setting is beautiful.

Here’s my heirloom diamond! It belonged to DH’s great aunt & we had it set into a simple rose gold solitaire. We don’t know the exact ct weight, but we think it’s between .25 and .3

ericarenee427 :  that’s a beautiful story. I bet your mum would be delighted. 

Is it an oec diamond?


i have an antique ring but it was bought not an heirloom but passing down and resetting if you like is a lovely thing.

I love the sentiment of heirloom rings. And I love you ladies’ sets!

One of the side stones in my ring came from my fiance’s mom’s ring. She passed away when he was very young and I’m honored to wear her diamond. Here’s a pic of her original ring (we still have those accent stones and I hope to have them set around an opal for a RHR), a couple of what we reset it into and a side view – I can tell which diamond is hers because it’s slightly shorter.

That is so meaningful that you have your mom’s diamond! I also have my mom’s diamond, when Fiance and I were looking to design my ring, my parents approached us and said they would be happy to let us use my mom’s original engagement ring diamond for my ring. I love it!
