My Moms Wedding Band.

Recommended Posts

:) so my mom and i were ripping through her old jewelery box to get rid of junk and she came across her wedding band (hasnt fit her in years) i tried it on and it fits like a glove and looks just perfect with my engagment ring. The problem is.. Its yellow gold and my Engagment ring is White gold.

 

She said i could get it plated or dipped to match. Has anyone ever tried this with any rings? Does it look good, or stay on for a long time? I would love to have my moms ring but it does look awfully silly two toned.

white gold is actually rhodium plated yellow gold. you will find over time with your engagement ring you will probably have to re-rhodium plate it once every 1-2 years (depending on wear, etc.) That is so special your moms ring works with yours though! I wanted to use the diamond my dad gave my mom (they are divorced) but she didn't want to give it up yet:-(.

Well that makes my life so much easier! haha Thank you :) i was wondering why my sister said she had to get hers done every so often.

 

My mom had to think about it for a little while, she mustve talked to my sister who im assuming told her that it would eventually turn back the way it originally was. Or i dont think she wouldve given it up either. Even though it hasnt fit her in about 15 years. Same goes for my dad.

 

Maybe she'll realize just how special it would be to have her daughter wear her diamond eventually. I guess it would be a hard thing to let go of. but she should know that it would be in very appreciative hands <3

That is so great!!! Can't wait to see pics when you are all done.

 

It means a lot to have family jewelry. I have FI's grandmother's engagement ring and almost every time she sees it; she gets a misty eyed.

I have a diamond in my e ring from grandmother and I have diamonds in my band from my moms ring (my father passed 3 years ago). It means alot to me.

 

I have also been married before and I am keeping that ring for my daughter. It has no meaning to me, but it will to her.

White gold is not just yellow gold that has been rhodium plated. It is an alloy of yellow gold with a whiter metal like nickel or palladium. White gold does still have a yellow tinge to it which is why it needs to be rhodium plated. Your mom's yellow gold ring that's been rhodium plated will probably turn more yellow than your e-ring as time goes on, but re-dipping them more often should take care of that. I think it's such a great thing to wear your mom's wedding ring!

That's a great idea! I would def talk to a jeweler though. There is one on the board, if you want to PM her - lilpaisley. She was very helpful to me when I had some jewelry questions before.

 

My mom had my Nana's wedding band re-shaped and gave it to me at my wedding. It's really cool to have that.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&amp;ga_search_type=all&amp;ga_view_type=gallery&amp;ga_search_query=personalized necklace&amp;ref=sc_gallery-3-9&amp;plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
