I have a few rings that were passed down but nothing overly sentimental….I do, however, ahve a beautiful white gold and diamons cross that my grandfather gave me that I wear evey day. I am not hugely religious, but grandpa is and it is a beautiful cross. My mom and two aunts all have the same cross from my grandpa that they wear every day (mom’s has emeralds in it, one aunt has rubies in it and the other has sapphires in it). Its grandpa’s special thing he does and it warms my heart to be part of that tradition.

I have a necklace and ring set that belonged to my great-great-grandmother, and then my great-grandmother (who I was very close with), who left it to me when she died. It was originally a brooch but was made into a necklace and ring at some point along the way. The necklace is a gold crescent moon covered in garnets and the ring is a cluster of garnets. Unfortunately, the ring doesn’t fit me as I have sausage fingers and my great-grandma was a very petite woman…but I plan on getting it sized when I can. Until then, it’s hanging out in my jewelry box (which is an awesome music box that also belonged to my great-grandma).

I don’t have a photo of the set right now, but these are items I’ve found that come from the same era, so they’re quite similar:

(the ring is probably closer to the size of the inner part of this…it’s not quite as big, but the same is about the same)

I have a James Avery heart shaped necklace that I wear everyday that my DH gave to me our first christmas together…it means alot because we were both very poor and he really wanted to get me something nice.

I know I will get my grandmothers e-ring that my grandfather got her for their 50th wedding anniversary….she never had a diamond till then and always just wore a really thick yellow gold band. My mom has it now and has told me that I will end up with it.

My mom bought me a really pretty necklace for my wedding day that I treasure but it has CZ’s in it so I am not sure how long I will be able to wear it.

And of course my wedding set is very special to me too.

Well, besides my e-ring…. I guess it would be my elephant necklace given to me by my grandmother on my 16th birthday (it will be my something old).  Since the e-ring I got from my grandmother and the ring I got from my sister both got stolen and I don’t have much jewelry from fi, that is it.

Other than my wedding set, I have a pearl necklace that was my great-grandmas, then  a few other costume pieces that are heirloom too that I love. Something I REALLY hope my mom gives me one day is either the pendant necklace she has that is a re-setting of my dad’s mom’s engagment ring or a cameo that was my grandma’s.

Mine is a star sapphire pendant that my dad gave my mom.  I inherited it when she passed away.  I had never noticed until I decided to wear it on my wedding day that it had 3 small diamonds above the sapphire forming a triangle–matching an earring/pendant set that DH bought me years ago.  So I wore my mom’s necklace and my earrings from DH when we got married.

I am NOT a jewelry person…. the only jewelry I own is my engagement ring… and these two that mean so much to me and were given to me by the two men that mean the most to me.  ๐Ÿ™‚

  This is a ring my dad gave me.  It swivels.. one side says… “Always my daughter.” and the other side says, “now too my friend.”  I don’t know what its made of but I plan to wear this ring as a necklace on my wedding day. ๐Ÿ™‚

And this was given to me by my Fiance.  It is the state of California in rose gold with a diamond where San Diego is.  It means a lot because I moved from there to where we live now and I get homesick a lot!

Other then my engagemnet ring… Is a diamond and ruby necklace.

I was given it for my 16th birthday from my aunt. The backstory behind it is: When she turned 21 my father(her brother) asked what she wanted, and she gave him a jewelry magizine and said anything out of it. Well he took her serioulsy and got her the necklace, in which she passed down to me. .. i love it.

@Katie1359:  I have a lot of jewelry that is meaningful but the one that I treasure the most is my promise ring. It was a special night and my husband (boyfriend at the time) bought it for me and I had no idea I would use it as my wedding ring during our first year of marriage. It was a very romantic moment for us out of the very many we’ve had.

My E-Ring of course; and also a pair of diamond studs my Fiance bought me when we first started dating.

He had never bought anything like that; it was just so sweet how he did research and picked them himself ๐Ÿ™‚

Other than my e-ring/wedding band I would have to say the cross my dad bought me for confirmation when I was 13. It’s really not my taste and I’m really not religious, but he put so much time and effort into picking out my first “real” piece of jewelry that there is so much meaning behind it for me. It looks very similar to this:
