Hello,

 

I just recently got engaged, and my wonderful Fiance proposed using a ring his mother that just passed away last November has left for him to give to the woman he chose to marry. I absolutely love it as it is very meaningful to both of us and his family. It has a pearl and 8 diamonds around it. He said that if I want I can get my diamond ring when we get married and wear that ring on the other hand. However I was thinking that maybe I would want to have my wedding band fit with the ring he proposed with... I just keep going back and forth about it. Does anyone have advice on this?

@Lilian84 - what does your heart say?? There's no right or wrong answer, it's just what you (and he) want. If you keep this ring on your left hand, you can have a custom made band made to wrap around it. So many options!!

Thank you Allie, and you are right there is not right or wrong. I guess I will wait until we meet up with his fathers friend who is a jeweler, he will probably have great ideas for us.

That's really sweet that he gave you his mum's ring. Follow your gut instinct here, you and your h2b will figure it out. I'd say you most probably could get a wedding band to fit with your engagement ring. I did that, it just involved me giving my engagement ring to the jeweler for a day so heccould make a mould of it. I tried them both on last week, the sit perfectly flush! Good luck with your decision and congratulations on your engagement :-)

Do whatever you want to do while keeping his emotions in mind. Its your wedding so the decision should be yours on any issue.But also think that he must be having sentimental attachment to that ring which allowed him to give it to you. SO,  whatever you do respect his feelings to that ring.

Oh absolutely! The fact he proposed with this ring means so much to both of us. And I want it on my finger everyday for the rest of my life. Just a matter of deciding on which hand. When he proposed he thought for sure the ring would be too small, his mother was very petite, but it was a perfect fit. We couldn't believe it. It was like it was meant to be!  :wub:
