I don’t have pictures of my mom or grandma’s ring, but my grandma had a 4 carat round brilliant with baguette side stones. It was her 40th anniversary gift from my grandfather, who couldn’t afford a ring when they first married. Unfortunately, the ring was stolen (probably by one of the caretakers who was taking care of her when she was in her 90s and could no longer care for herself) and my family is devastated it’s gone.
My mom’s ring is a simple yellow gold oval solitaire in a six prong setting. Center stone is around 1 ct. she’s never been a huge diamond person so she never wanted something flashy.
Here’s a pic of my 2 ct center (3 cttw) triple shank e ring. Definitely the most intricate setting of the three rings!

The photos I have of my mom’s and my grandma’s (mom’s mom) rings aren’t the best quality, but I think it’s cool that we all have different colors of gold!
My grandma’s is a very flat and wide band, looks like channel set side stones and I think a bezel center, all set in white gold.
My mom just recently added a band to her ring. Her’s has been upgraded a few times now. Her current set is yellow gold.
Mine is a 1.31 carat center with milgrain and side stones, all set in rose gold.
I love how different they all are!! 🙂 Hoping to get a photo of all three of our hands together at my wedding in May!
