My beautiful 88 year old grandmother just flew across the world to come attend my younger brother’s wedding.

She gifted me a heart diamond ring when I got married. I’ve never worn it as it was too big for me. When she heard this, she asked to try on one of my rings to get a feel for my size... then walked into her room and came out with a ring that she said she would like me to have.

It’s an older style ballerina ring, but I love it because it’s from her. It also features a red stone (which I suspect is a garnet) which is so fitting for Valentine’s Day!

Sorry for the crappy pictures. Limited to my old iPhone camera. I do struggle to capture the colour in the photos, which make it look dull and dark. It’s kind of a deep rich red which lights up under different angles, especially in brighter lights.

A sentimental and lovely ring.

Re: the heart diamond ring, how about re-purposing it, say as a pendant or whatever, with her knowledge and blessing, so that you could wear it?

What a beautiful ring and I echo @Queenie60 's sentiments. It's a treasure you will always cherish because your dear Grandmother gave it to you. A beautiful ring from a beautiful woman to a beautiful woman. :love:

And that paraiba ring...wow!

It’s beautiful and such a wonderful gift to receive. Your grandma has great taste and is an angel, but I figure you already know that!

How lovely! I hope you can get the heart ring re-sized or be able to wear it somehow. What a lovely thing for your grandmother to do. I hope I am as able to travel as she when I reach her age.

Gorgeous! How special to have a beautiful piece from Grandma. My fiancé's 97 year old grandmother did the same thing a couple of months ago, she just needed to give me something right then and there. I got a lovely vintage cigarette purse from the 20s. I just love it (not a smoker) because of the intent!
