Mine is only from the 1980’s and was my mom’s wedding set.  My parents are still married after 26 years but it doesn’t really fit her finger anymore.  I love it!

This ring was passed down to me a few years back. My grandfather was a jeweler in the 50’s and he made this three stone diamond ring YG and PLAT himself! I feel honored to wear it and I love it! .5cttw

My Grandmothers’s ring. I think it looks like Jackie-O’s when she was married to JFK.

I also have my Great-Grandmother’s ring. Orginally it was opal and pearls, but now it has pink and white(?) diamonds.

FutureMrsHitBee:  Can we see a picture of the ring?? 🙂 I had my ring’s shank redone and the prongs rebuilt it was like $400, but worth the price. If we see your ring maybe we can help you determine what needs done?

This ring was FH’s grandmother’s wedding ring! From the 1930s, a midcentury design. It was a complete surprise to receive this ring, and I love it so much. I didn’t find anything in stores that I liked, and FH said that when his mother showed him this ring he knew it was the one for me! He was right 🙂

FutureMrsHitBee:  I’m sure when they resize it they can fix the bend, such a nice band! Very “married”!

It’s so lovely that lots of you have your mums rings or your grannies rings. 

My e-ring is antique but bought not through my family. It’s a platinum ring about 100 years old. Diamond in the centre is 2.4ct OMC thought to be mined in the 1800s.  It has a very pretty hearts and scroll setting. 

I do often wonder where it’s been and what it’s ‘seen’ and if its previous owners are happy that we now have it.  

and in the same week as getting engaged i also got gifted this pretty little flower style ring from a distant relative.  It’s not really my style so I considered resetting the diamonds but some of the Bees commented to say I should keep it as it is and maybe pass it on to a daughter or god daughter. It’s ever so cute. It must be about 80 years old but I’m not sure.
