I think that’s a wonderful and special way to both honor your grandmother and fill the space of your engagement ring.

I audibly gasped the other day when I read your story about what happened to you, btw. I’m so sorry!

I think that’s a really great way to turn a sucky situation into something special and memorable…Wearing your grandmother’s diamonds will have a lot of significance for you, I’m sure, sooooo glad you were able to recover from the HORROR of what happened to your e-ring!

i think that’s a wonderful gift and makes it even more special to your brother’s future wife.

I would be so honored to wear that ring if I was your younger brother’s FI! What a neat way to join the family 🙂

How creative of your parents, too. Does your brother have a say in the new setting of the diamonds?

That sounds great!!  I was so sad when I read what happened to your ring!  I am in Boston too, so all I kept thinking is “how can I help from here??”  But I don’t think there is anything I could have done.  (But of course, if there is, let me know!)
