futurejewell2017:  Thanks so much! And how awesome to be twins with someone for our parents having a long marriage! I feel very fortunate that my parents stayed together for so long. They have been good role models, in that they showed me how to stick things out through thick and thin. And there were some pretty hard times, which I think is natural in any marriage. But seeing them weather that made me realize that, no matter how awful the hard times seem, we can probably get through it. My mom was 19 and my dad was 25 when they got married.

I’m not positive about the exact year when my grandparents got married. (These are the grandparents on my mom’s side. I know virtually nothing about my grandparents on my dad’s side, as he came from a very dysfunctional family, sadly.) My mom was born around 1937, so my guess is that my grandmother’s ring is early to mid-1930s. I love how it’s got such a pretty art deco look to it.

futurejewell2017:  I had to laugh when I read what you wrote about you and your Fiance figuring you will stay together until you die or kill each other. DH and I say that all the time. πŸ˜›

I’m very sorry about your first marriage. That sounds really difficult and heartbreaking. But, with those kinds of outside issues, it seems like you did the best thing for yourself in getting out of that situation. And now, you are with your Fiance, who is your forever person! So that is awesome. I was lucky that I met my forever guy right away. It doesn’t always work out that way.

futurejewell2017:  Unfortunately she had damage to her finger, which has made it permanently larger; luckily they missed the maker’s mark (which was really important to her for sentimental reasons; they’ve been married 44 years now, the jeweller they bought it from no longer exists, and she has never take it off) when they cut it off at the hospital (pure luck), and the jeweller who repaired it (the same one who made our wedding and engagement rings) was able to simply ‘add in’ extra gold and keep the original marks intact. I think it cost about £150 though as the ring is very thick and wide. 

Also,court shape refers to the shape of the band; if you cut through a court-shaped band it looks like an oval; whereas a D-shape (which is also curved on the outside) looks like a D. Court shapes are more expensive for that reason, as more metal goes into them (in simplistic terms, a D-shape is about half the thickness). OH also has a court-shaped band (in platinum) and it cost a lot more than a similar band of a different shape would have done. Apparently, they’re considered more comfortable due to the curved shape. 

I also hear you re yellow gold; I have a few yellow gold pieces but find white metals suit me better, so my ‘every day’  jewellery (wedding set and a pendant) is platinum, then I have a mix of jewellery in yellow gold/white gold/silver.

MrsSparkleBee13:  That is too cute for words. Some of my best memories were doing the same thing with my Grandmother. Your kids will be happy they were able to share that with her when they get older.
