If you love it, go for it.  If I had a 3ct diamond laying around, I’d certainly rock it.  Who cares if people think its fake, it’s for MY pleasure and *I* know its real.

@MrsNeutrino:  If the heirloom is an old cut, I say definitely yes (assuming it suits the setting) as I have a love of old cuts. If not, then I say yes too if that is what you want!

I do not see how it is a bad idea if you and your Fiance are both on board. But I also don’t care much what judgments other make (I actually wear created stones like lab sapphires and moissanite, and don’t try and pass them, but people sometimes make assumptions).

I would check that you CAN use your current setting with the heirloom stone with some modifications. Not all settings allow for an easy swap, or a swap at all, when it comes to putting a much larger stone in.

Whatever you decide, I would either use the extra stone for a new RHR design or a pretty flashy looking pendant.

It only matters if you and your Fiance are happy with it. It shouldn’t matter what others think.

If Fiance doesn’t care and you don’t care, then heck yes!

I asked sort of the same question, and got totally different answers. But I say go for it! Flaunt what you got. 🙂

I’d go for it! (: You and the people you’re close to will know that it’s real and won’t judge and that’s what matters.

OMG.  Same problem here!  I look very young as well and people look at me funny too when they notice the 3 ct on my hand.  Doesn’t help that my hands are small too and a size 4.5! yikes!

I would make the switch if i were you.  especially if its a family heirloom.  DEF GO FOR IT!

The question is…why would you question not using a 3 ct ring you have lying around?

@TopazWedding:  Not to stir the pot, but your situation was presented quite differently in which your Fiance was adamant about picking out your ring himself instead of using an heirloom.  The OP in this situation says her Fiance doesn’t care at all.
