Relative noob here....my sweet mother passed away a few months ago, and I recently did a makeover of her wedding ring. The top left picture is her ring. I had the 3 round diamonds reset (one of the smaller diamonds was from her original engagement ring from 1953), and had a simple band made with 4 small baguettes that were on the sides of her ring. I wanted something that I could wear all the time, to remind me that my mom is always with me. The band is already a little scratched up, should have taken pictures before I wore it for a while.

Thanks for looking!

I really love how you reset the stones! I also am so sorry for the loss of your mother. My mother recently had a stroke and went into assisted living, so I got her diamond and reset it into a pendant. It is nice to have special heirlooms to remember our mothers!

Diamond Seeker, I'm so sorry about your mother's recent illness. It's so difficult to watch a parent getting older and frailer. That's really nice that you have her diamond, wear it in good health!

emdash, bethprov, DandiAndi, lknvrb4, Amy's Bling, tyty333- thank you all for your kind words....I like to think she would be proud, and it comforts me to have something that was on her hand for so many years.
