So on my wedding day I want to have my great-grandmothers sapphire ring on me somewhere. My mom gave it to me when I was 8 for dress up and I used to pretend it was my wedding ring! I can’t were it on my hand because I’ll be wearing my e-ring on my right and then I’ll get my wedding ring on my right at the ceremony. I need ideas on where to keep it. So far I thought about putting it on a chain and wearing it around my neck, or maybe tying to to my bouquet. I want it to be my “something old.”
This is what it looks like except it’s yellow gold.

I know this may not help; but I would want to wear it. I would wear it on my right and maybe have your Maid/Matron of Honor or mom hold onto or wear your e-ring. Then after the ceremony you can just slip your ER on in front of your wedding band.

I am wearing a sapphire ring that my dad gave my mom when they were dating, it is going to be my something blue. As of now I plan on actually wearing it on my right hand, but I may end up tying it to my boquet.

If you are considering wearing it on a chain around your neck you could just have it made into a necklace.

I like the idea of wearing it on a chain but you might not be able to see the stone, unless you make it a necklace, taht way you can wear it later.
It’ll be cute to have it in you bouquet, just put it someplace easy to see, not hiding between the flowers.

I have a similar ring from my grandma and as my grandma passed away several years ago, it was more important to me to wear her ring than my Engagement Ring. My mom slipped my e-ring onto her pinky for the ceremony and gave it to me as soon as the ceremony was over.
I saw your dress post and am just wondering how your ring would look hanging on a chain…. I can’t really picture it but what I have in my head doesn’t quite look right. You could always tie it to your bouquet but you would just have to be really careful that it didn’t fall off and/or get forgotten and tossed out later.

Some may disagree, but there’s really nothing wrong with wearing your e-ring on your left hand on your wedding day. I wore mine because it doesn’t quite fit on my right hand. I switched their order (wedding band on the bottom) after the ceremony. No big deal, and the only person who even knew was my husband and our pastor.

I would wear it on my right hand like a lot of you have suggested, but my Fiance isnt just getting me a band, I’m getting a new ring. (Spoiled? maybe..) but I always dreamed of having a yellow ring, but I didn’t want it forever. So my engagement ring is yellow sapphire (see picture) and I’m getting a simpler diamond for my wedding ring. I feel if I was to wear the blue sapphire AND my yellow sapphire It’ll be too much…

I love the idea of incorporating into your bouquet or depending upon how large it is, could you attach it to your garter somehow? Don’t know how you would, but it just popped into my head. In any case, it’s gorgeous!
