Engagement Rings




for my birthday recently my grandmother decided to give me three rings and a brooch. the sapphire and diamond ring is her engagement ring, the diamond ring and diamond brooch were her mother's and the gold band was her grandmother's. so she passed three generations of wedding rings down to me. i'm sure you all understand how special this is without me even needing to add anything extra. they are the most beautiful rings i've ever seen and they fit me perfectly. now, to find a husband!

  5. What an amazing present! I can't help but think of the times that these rings would have been worn through, so much history. I love vintage jewellery but it makes it that much more special when it used to belong to someone you were related to.

  6. My nan did the same sort of thing to my mum - she passed her wedding rings and engagements ring to her who then passed me them. They are the most beautiful things ever, I love how they have family qualities :)

  18. This is a lovely post! The notes your grandmother has given you with the rings are gorgeous.

    My Nan gave me some of her jewellery over the years and I know a little of the story behind each but would love to have known all the details. I can't wait to pass on to my grandchildren in years to come.

    You've made me want to dig out my old heirlooms and have trip down memory lane x
