Although he never came home with a box of pretties like that, I know that feeling. I always knew that my fiance would never buy me an engagement ring because we were putting all our money into the deposit on our house. Having a big beautiful house is worth it, though, and is so much more practical than more diamonds.

You should be allowed to pick your favorite one to keep!  =)  Maybe you can convince him!?  It would be nice to keep at least one of his grandmother’s rings in the family, but I totally understand as I have house envy!

He won’t let you keep one of the rings?

He should let you keep them! The resale value of all those vintage rings will be very disappointing.  Honestly, maybe $400-$600 max for all of them together.

If it were me, I would beg him to be able to keep them and just keep saving for the house. OMG I would not be able to let those gorgeous heirlooms go!

Why can’t you keep them and what was the point of taunting you with them!  grrrrr.  Though, how can you hate life when you just got gifted a lump sum to pay the rest of your down payment!

The one that is in your “e-ring” position is my fave…any particular reason why you placed that one there? 😉

I agree with PPs – maybe he’ll let you keep just one?

I would convince him to hold onto those rings, at least a few of them. Once they’re gone, they’re gone forever and you can never get them back!

I would tell him he will wish he kept at least one.  Those are memories and things that can be passed down through your family!  I would try to keep the diamond one because that can be passed down for generations.

@Bubu82: It’s in her e-ring position because it IS her e-ring.

I’m with everyone else, I don’t think you’ll get as much as you think… and you should keep at least one to pass on to your kids or something! What a GREAT way to remember a family member! (I’m biased as my grandmother had absolutely BEAUTIFUL jewelery, and my cousins/aunts and I just LOVE sharing/wearing all the pieces)

@jumpthegun: Oops. Sorry, I admit I did not read through all of the ring description part.

If you get to keep just one, keep the one above your E-ring! I am LOVING that one, beautiful!
