I think it’s totally fine since you have permission to do so. The only thing I would say is don’t use the current diamonds to put towards the value of your new diamond but it doesn’t sound like you would do that anyways. You could also get a brand new e-ring (if your Fiance is on board) and keep the heirloom as your RHR.

make a pendant with the heirloom one? and sure upgrade if you can and want to.

I think making another family heirloom is a great idea. A pendant or another ring.


The band it part of the past and the new diamond is the future. Marry the ring, the old and the new. 🙂

Can you change the setting so that the heirloom ring can be your wedding band and pair it with an engagement ring that you love?

@reebee:  I like this idea! Have the grandmother’s ring changed so that the center stones sit flush with the other two (like it was origionally) and it can be a three stone wedding band 🙂 I think it would be a shame to break up the ring too much. I’m always jealous of girls who have heirloom jewelry!

I might just wear it as a right hand ring and get a new ring made as a wedding band with a larger center stone, or whatever you like.  You don’t NEED two rings – you can wear one as a wedding band and keep that one as it is and still wear it. 

Or, change it to be more like a wedding band and add a solitaire.
