    I think you should wear it because the symbolism is so special! A replica just won’t do!

     

    Also, I think you should choose whatever engagement ring you want, regardless of metal color. Nobody else willc are/notice what metal your secondary rings are made of!

    I would wear your grandmother’s ring and not even worry about it. It’s such a small part of your outfit and not even that visible since it will be on your hand. I wore a pearl/gold bracelet that belonged to my grandmother and the rest of my jewelry (and all of my bridesmaids’ jewelry) was silver. It meant a lot to me to be able to wear it. I’m sure you’ll feel the same way on your wedding day.

    I wear my grandma’s yellow gold ring on my right hand and my white gold e-ring on my left.  I don’t think its an issue at all.  All of my wedding jewelry will be yellow gold other than my e-ring and w-band, whatever 🙂

    I also wouldn’t do a replica; I feel like it defeats the purpose. 

    For reference:

    I don’t understand why you wouldn’t wear this?!  It’s a ring. It has incredible meaning to you.  Just wear it!!!

    You can wear the ring and it will be fine even though the metals are different!  My e-ring and wedding ring are moissanite and palladium, my accessories will be silver, and I will be wearing my Grandmother’s ring that is yellow gold and diamonds on my right hand.

    Um, I wear my gold engagement ring and assorted other gold pieces along with my assorted silver and platinum pieces all the time. White metal and gold metal do not clash, they look great together. That rule went out with matching your handbag to your shoes.
