When England's Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton, he gave his bride his mother's engagement ring.
This touching tradition appeals very much to some people -- and not at all to others. On one hand, an heirloom ring, carries a sense of continuity and belonging go along with it that can't be duplicated. On the other, there's something so special about having a ring chosen just for you, to be worn on your finger alone.
Do you have an heirloom engagement ring, or would you want one?
