For our vow renewal, we want to have our original rings refashioned into a new set. I had a chat with a jeweler Friday about what we could do and my problem is that there are too many diamonds for what I want done. This set has 10 baguette-cut diamonds and a large marquee-cut diamond. It has always been way to large and showy for my taste and my small hands (I wear between a 4 & 5 ring). So, a thought that came to mind was to turn the marquee sideways, set it INTO the band, and do 3 channel-set baguettes on each side and leave 4 baguettes off completely. With those 4 diamonds, we would make each of our kids a piece of jewelry of their choice as they got old enough to take care of such a thing. I think it is a neat thought that they each would have a diamond from our original wedding set. It even gives me chills to think our great-grands somewhere along the way might be able to say, "This diamond is from my great-grandparent's original wedding ring set."
What makes me reluctant, though, is what kind of jewelry do men wear these days? Since coming up with the idea, I've been trying to pay attention to men and their jewelry, but it doesn't seem men wear much in my area other than wedding rings. The girls are easy, but I'm wondering if our boys will think it as special, you know? Any ideas out there?
