Hello, I just thought i would share my grandma engagement ring that i just recieved. I have actually had it for a long time just not ready to wear it. My grandparents were married in the early 40''s. I love having a piece of her with me.

The center stone is small but it sparkles like mad. When i took it in to get sized, the jeweler said it looked like it was about a D VS1, which suprised me and thats why i am so disapointed that the pictures are not better!

well i just thought i would share a little piece of my grandmas past. enjoy! and Merry Christmas!!!!

how wonderful to have such a meaningful piece of jewelry. Is this an engagement ring for you?

Thanks it means alot to me!

No it isnt an engagement ring for me

I had it sized for my right hand, although it doesnt seem to want to fit on that finger today and my ring finger is the only one it would go on! Go figure.

Hopefully we will see sun soon, I live in wisconsin and it has been pretty dreary here. with rain.. wheres my snow for christmas!!

Beanie,

I think it''s beautiful! A lovely ring, and a lovely sentiment. Your Grandma obviously means a lot to you and it is wonderful that you have her ring.

Lovely!

Good. I''m glad that you''re going to get to wear her ring! It looks lovely. Maybe you''re blocking the light from the stone. Takes many more photos to get it right. I know it looks even nicer in person. Congrats.

Beanie: Your Grandmother''s ring is beautiful. Both my grandmother and my mother had their rings re-done after their husbands passed away, without even any pictures of what they looked like. Had them turned into a right hand ring. You are very lucky to have that beautiful piece of your past.

Thank you everyone for your kind replies!

I will try to maybe get some better pictures when the sun comes out!
I was the only grand daughter, so we had a special bond. My mother told me that even at an early age i had an eye for the sparkly stuff! I guess i would walk around in my grandmas shoes and her ring and when my mom would come pick me up I would show it off.. What a goof! Of course the ring was WAY to big and she watched me with a hawk eye to make sure i did not loose it! Good thing!!!

It is just so different looking and love the vintage look about it. I told my boyfriend of 3.5 years i would be so happy to have this presented to me as an engagement ring. But so far he hasnt taken the bait!
