I think an heirloom as a right hand ring is perfect. Or consider resetting the pear into something more your style!

I much prefer the pear, but that is just my personal style. There’s no reason you can’t wear both, keep grandmas ring for an RHR if you prefer the rose gold ring.

I  wear my Nana’s right on my right hand. Then again, I did not have the option to use it for my engagement since I did not get it until she passed away. If given the choice, I probably would’ve used her ring. However, her ring is very similiar to what I ended up picking out – round brilliant with baguette side stones (mine is round brilliant with pave shared prong band)

Of those you posted, I do like the round one better, but the meaning behind your grandma’s ring can’t be replicated. Could you perhaps add a halo to make it more your style?

I would wear the round as a engagement ring and the pear as a RHR!

bclaytonsc :  I like the second one better. I am not fond of pear shaped rings either. Have it made into a necklace or a broach  so you can remember your lovely grandmother.

The pear looks more classic. The rose gold looks too trendy.

Why can’t you use your gramma pear on the twist/infinity band?

Definitely nothing wrong with keeping your grandmother’s ring as a RHR and getting the engagement ring you truly want 🙂 You will still be honoring her by wearing it, whether you’re wearing it as your engagement ring or not.

I think I prefer the pear on your finger. It looks nicer on your hands. But you have to know what you like!

I would reset the pear! Then you have the best of both worlds!
