    Ooooh @missy! Seeing that lovely ring suddenly brought tears to my eyes - and I'm not even sure why. Reminds me, I suppose, of all the best parts of having an engagement ring. And what a truly wonderful example of a ring with history and an antique cut diamond! I'm so glad you shared this special piece.

    Aww thank you @mrs-b. My great grandma's ring brings tears to my eyes too. I miss my grandma and even though it wasn't her ring (it was her mom's ring) I associate it with her.

    Here is a photo of my grandma's engagement ring. Small but a very sweet solitaire.

    and if I may share a photo of my grandparents.

    Lastly a shot of my mom's engagement ring. She never upgraded or changed a thing but when they first got married they had no money so they married with only wedding bands and after the first year of marriage my dad was able to afford an engagement ring for my mom.

    Not a great photo but the only one I have.

    I have a photo of all 4 generations...my great grandma, my grandma and my mom and me but it is so faded so not worth sharing. I have to find out if I can get it restored or if it is too late. It's a super old photo...over 50 years old.

    @missy I would love to see the pic of all four generations if you are able to restore it :) Have you shared a pic of your original?

    Thanks @Wewechew. I only have this photo and it is faded terribly...I doubt it can be restored. I'll ask my mom if she has any other 4 generation photos but I don't think she does. In this photo it is me, my mom, my grandmother and my great grandmother. My sister was not yet born and she is named after my great grandmother (because she was born after my great grandmother died).

    Posting my new eternity band. Too much with the rest of the set? 7449C3FE-EB8C-4D91-93BC-F046CE87D996.jpeg 262ADD19-EA1E-469E-A858-1383E46FDC95.jpeg 51DEB958-4638-4CC7-B8B3-48ABE6D6A271.jpeg 3891C19A-9259-47E2-8D80-A62233A31CDA.jpeg 421E3E7D-3411-46EA-A7CA-3B0AE66AA2B8.jpeg AB93FFF5-A1B1-48C2-A330-146B602AB715.jpeg

    Your new eternity is beautiful @cpmhjpj!!! :love: This is jmo but I think the 3 rings are a little too much together, and the eternity is a different height from the others. That's just my personal preference though...if you love the look go for it! Your rings are all very lovely.

    Beautiful collection! To me it looks a bit clunky altogether, but hey, who cares what others think! Do you with confidence whatever that looks like!

Here it is—modest by PS standards, but not by mine! I pick up my matching platinum knife edge band tomorrow.

    Awww, @missy... I love these photos, esp the one of your grandparents! You look just like your grandmother! So sweet. And your mother's ring is the epitome of class - love it!

    Thank you! It’s 1.7 carat and about 7.8mmx 6.7mm if I’m remembering correctly. I totally agree I love the size!! To me it feels very substantial without being too much for my daily routines and job :)

    Thank you so much! I’ve found myself wondering if the pears should be a bit smaller, but I do love that it retains the three-stone look rather than looking like a round with accent stones. My original e-ring was a three-stone with rounds, so I guess I’m attached to that three-stone look. It’s at the jewelers right now having the prongs changed to a claw style, so fingers crossed it’s perfect when I pick it up on Friday!

I was so excited to add it to my collection (wedding band and ering) but I think you’re right that it may be too much. I do still feel like I may want a very thin band in the future- maybe like a spacer. But for now, I’m wearing my new band (push present, early anniversary present, and early Xmas present) with my ering alone and my original wedding band on my right hand. Original set is pictured below

    It looks beautiful Nala! You need to do a SMTB thread! I know you've got the stacking bands lined up to go with it!

    You are too kind! I’m not doing a thread bc although I love it, my sidestones are not ideal cut or even close to it. But they are good enough for me and allowed me to explore this option without spending 2k. Lol.

    Oh ! Congratulations!!!! What a lovely surprise! Your E-ring is so pretty, and fits your hands perfectly.
    Enjoy !!!!! If you want, be sure to post pics in daylight, or ambient light.
    And don't forget to share a wedding pic or too!

    I'm sure other people will be posting responses to you soon...I think your post got swamped by the holidays!

I really like having something to wear on the rare occasion I don’t want to wear the e-ring. But I’m not sure if I like the e-ring alone or with the band better. :think: Any thoughts? Also, here’s a bonus sparky pic. :love:

    Here's my engagement ring, 2ct G SI1 in the center (it is so much more sparkly and fire-y in person, it really is hard to get a good picture of diamonds!). The one smaller side diamond is from my FI's great-grandmother's engagement ring, and the rubies came from my grandma's wedding band. :kiss2: He put them together into a custom ring with a local jeweler. It's different, but I love the sentimentality!

    I love it! It's very unusual and very very pretty. It has an air of flighty fancy, not sure how to explain. Super pretty!
