by Irishgrrrl » Aug 15, 2008 . . . would it bug you to wear a ring that used to be the engagement ring of a couple who got divorced? What if that couple was your parents? Here''s the story: My parents married in 1972, and my Dad was in the military at the time. He was only 21, and my mom was only 18. So, they didn''t have a whole lot of money to spend on an e-ring. The ring he got my Mom was a diamond cluster ring. There were seven wee little round diamonds, and they were arranged in kind of a flower pattern, with one diamond in the center and the other six in a circle around it. (All of the diamonds are the same size.) So, viewed from a distance, it looked like a solitaire. My parents then got divorced in 1981, when I was three years old. My Mom had the diamonds from her e-ring reset into a band, which she later gave to me. It just happens to fit my right pinky perfectly. I haven''t worn it, mainly because I kinda forgot I had it! So, I''m thinking about wearing it regularly now. Not necessarily every day, but probably pretty often. Do you think that would just be weird, or should I go for it? I''m such a dork when it comes to diamonds that have a "history"! LOL!
