Repurposing my Grandmother's setting

My grandmother had a 3 stone OEC ring that she wore everyday. As a child, I adored it and would ask to try it on at any opportunity. It consisted of her mother’s 1.11 H VVS/IF (except for a girdle chip) oec, her own 0.3 engagement OEC, and an aunt’s 0.3 OEc. After she passed in 2010, I got the 1.11, an aunt got one 0.3, and a cousin got the other 0.3. That left the setting. I have another aunt who is an incredibly generous person and is always helping with my kids or whatever she can, whenever she can. She is a self-described loser of jewelry, however, so she didn’t want anything extremely valuable. So I just took the setting and had a 7 mm moissanite and 2 amethysts put into it for her. Amethyst is her birthstone and conveniently inexpensive. Here it is - I can’t wait to give it to her!!! It’s an 8.5 and my ring finger is a 6, but you get the idea

Beautiful ring. And a perfect example of the impact small sidetones can make in changing the overall profile of a design.

Wonderful!

How incredibly thoughtful of you, and wonderfully generous to acknowledge her for all the help she gives by helping her keep and enjoy this piece of family history. It just gives you the warm fuzzies to read about!

That is exactly what I thought. Jewelry can be so emotionally powerful and this one hit me right in the heart. It's also beautiful <3
