Ok Bee’s, Need some advice. My fiance proposed with a BEAUTIFUL 18kt yellow gold 1ctw ring. I LOVE IT. So what’s wrong? Nothing. This sucker SPARKLES and I get compliments ALL THE TIME. BUT…. I am not a materialistic person. I wear things that have a deep personal meaning. I wear the same earrings that my grandma bought me for xmas when i was 8, the same necklace my great great auntie gave me when i was a little girl, my sons ID bracelet i bought when he was born, and my grandfathers wedding ring as a thumb ring. day in and day out. I NEVER take this jewelry off. so. Even though I absolutely love my engagement ring, there is a ring that my son bought me when he was about 4 (he’ll be 12 soon). I had given him $2. that day for helping me around the house and cleaning up his room. He bought some pokemon cards and then went to one of them 25 cent machines that sell stickers and whatnot. Put the last of his little money in the machine and out came a little plastic ring which he then proudly announced as a gift for me with the biggest smile ever. This was the FIRST thing the boy bought me with his own money. So, i’m really thinking of having that little ring that was given to me by my son as my wedding ring but buying 2 thin gold bands to wear on each side of the ring. The pictures of the rings are below. You guys let me know your thoughts.
you’ll have to excuse the kitchen. it was the only place i could get good light.

While it is so sweet that your son did this, I wouldn’t be comfortable with this if I was your SO. I would want you to have something that represents our relationship rather than your relationship with your son. However, you should choose what is right for you. Your engagement ring is beautiful, and the ring your son gave you is too because of the sentiment. If it were me, I would keep the engagement ring as a symbol of your relationship with your Fiance and wear the ring your son gave you on your right hand to represent your relationship with him.

I agree. Wear the son ring on your right hand.

I would keep the e-ring from your Fiance, if it were me on your wedding finger and move the one from your son across to the other hand.
That’s just me though 🙂

Your e-ring will be the start of new memories for you. Each piece of jewelry that you wear every day was new at one point in time, and had no sentimental value. Your e-ring symbolizes the beginning of your life together with your Fiance. Keep it and wear it on your left hand.

@tashajaysen: I agree with MsPoodles. And besides the engagement ring has a deep personal meaning too. I personally feel that my ring finger should be used to represent my dedication and love to my husband and only that. Your sons ring has deep sentiment too but I would probably wear it on the other hand. With that being said, everyone is different and you should do what you, your Fiance and son feel is best. By The Way your ring is gorgeous!

It’s great that your son gave you a ring that means so much…
But your ring finger is definitely meant for your SO… I think your engagement has huge sentimental connections and that should mean something too… Wear your son’s ring on your right hand, and maybe have your SO and Son help pick out your wedding band! 🙂

I would wear the ring from your son on your right hand or on a necklace if it was me.
Beautiful rings, all of them! 🙂

Hey THANKS ladies!!!!! I totally didn’t view it as “my marrying my son” type of way. Thanks for posting your view in a respectful way instead of just saying it looked f’n stupid or wtf dumba$$. LMAO! I’m going to go with the BLING. but I think I may look into having the setting lowered a bit. Not only do i catch it on stuff (like my pockets) but i’ve gotten my hair caught in it (i’m super curly) and had to cut my hair off and out of the ring, and i’ve scratched my face up a couple good times taking a shower. I know, i’m a bit on the “special” side . But again, THANKS! totally appreciate your input!
