Today, I'm sporting my grandmother's engagement ring on my ring hand. It was from her second marriage, hence its modern design. (P.S. They met through an advertisement in the newspaper. Can we say predecessor to online dating?!) I think its diamond bookends show off the citrine's unique color so nicely.
Though I wear it for sentimental reasons, tons of people use their grandmother or great grandmother's engagement ring as their own (our editor in chief, included!). Or, in a twist, the groom will propose with the ring of his grammy. What a great way to celebrate your loved one!
Is your ring an heirloom piece? If so, we'd love to see it!
