I think if he wants to buy you a new ring then it is probably important to him to be the one to provide it for you.  If it were me I would let him be the one who buys your engagement ring and possibly wear your grandmother’s beautiful ring as a special right hand ring.

I love the vintage ring! I think that it is sweet that he wants to get you a ring himself.  However, if you would prefer the vintage ring (i think i would!) you should tell him how much it means to you!!

I always had my heart set on vintage. I didn’t know my husband had a ring in his family waiting for me, so I just told myself I’d be happy with whatever I got. But if I knew there was a family ring and I didn’t get it, I’d probably be a little upset. I think it’s sweet that he wants to do that for you, but maybe you can suggest him picking out the wedding band, since that seems to be the more meaningful ring anyway.

Personally I love the vintage ring, but if it’s important to him that he get you a new one, then let him do it 🙂

What about telling him you would love to wear the vintage ring to show the family history and the merging of two families, but if he really wants to buy you his own setting then offer to let him get a custom wedding band to match or get whatever setting he would like (hint a vintage feel) and wear the heirloom as a right hand ring. You might just get the best of both worlds!
