does he wear any other jewelry? My fiance wears a necklace of St. Florian (he’s a firefighter) that would be awesome as your melted down ring.

Meldown down jewelry tends to be costly. Since its just silver why not leave it in the box for memories sake. Men just aren’t that sentimental.

Its a purity ring, so there for I would put it away for memories sake. You are married now & it has no purpose anymore. Your wedding ring took its place! 🙂

Toss it out the window?  😉

 

 

haha Kidding, kinda.  I think just storing it in a jewelry box would be good enough.

Maybe if you make a shadow box from your wedding, you can include it in there. Alternatively, you could see about getting it hammerd out into dogtags. Those are a bit more manly than a feminine ring on a necklace, and you can inscribe on it what you’d like.

Why don’t you get a gold mens band and melt it in with that?  Mine and my fiances are going to both be gold 🙂

I would find a jeweler in your area willing to melt it down before deciding.  Unfortunately, it seems like a lot of jewelers aren’t keen on working with silver, and you may find it easier to keep it as is and find a solution that way.  I love the idea and symbolism behind giving your purity ring to your husband, I think it’s sweet…just now sure how it would work. 

If you do find a jeweler willing to melt it, I think making a seperate ring is a great idea!  If he’s rough on his hands, depending on his job, maybe he should wear it on special occasions so it doesn’t get too banged up.

I think you should keep it for your children- either a daughter and tell her that it was yours etc or a son who can pass it onto his gf? The msg behind a purity ring is so special and having one handed down just makes it that little bit more special (IMO).

Have it melted down into silver cufflinks and present them to him on your wedding day?
