Heirlooms Wedding Rings
An Heirloom ring is one that is treasured through each generation it is passed down. As part of a family’s history, it is sentimental and inspirational.
Many of our couples have had wedding rings passed down to them by their parents, grandparents, or relatives. As a blessing of the marriage, they are presented with either wedding bands or an engagement ring to give to the person they’ll spend the rest of their life with. It represents the love and commitment the couple who exchanged the ring initially shared, and that of which they wish for you and your partner to share.
Typically, the person proposing asks for, or receives, the heirloom ring either from their family or from their partner’s family.
An heirloom ring connects you with the person who originally wore it, along with any others who wore it. This connection builds the generational tree loved ones who treasured the piece of jewelry. And with each branch extension, the durability of the ring increases, symbolizing the strength of the marriage.
The value of an heirloom engagement ring is associated with the memories and love that surrounded the ring for years. There is no amount of money that could replace the sentiment of an heirloom ring, making it invaluable in the hearts of it’s owners.
