hi there

my fiance used his great grandmothers ring as an engagement ring to me and i love the meaning behind it and feel honoured to wear it. i would like to keep on wearing it but would like to add something to it that makes it my own...is it wrong to change the ring? would it be better to just have a wedding ring matched to it and pizaz that part?

Hi Jess,
It's lovely that you feel honored to be wearing your fiance's great grandmother's ring. I don't think you can go wrong with either adjusting the ring to your liking or having a wedding ring matched to it. If you feel strongly that you would like to adjust the ring, I would definitely have a serious conversation with your fiance and make sure it is okay with him (and potentially his family). If they feel very strongly that you shouldn't do anything to the ring, than I would focus on getting the matching wedding ring, as the default.
Whatever you do, please send us a picture if you have a chance so we can see the ring :)
