I don't care where it's been...

Engagement is in the air... How can I tactfully let my future fiance know that I would be honored to receive his great- great grandmother's ring? -The catch? He was married very briefly (3months- she had an affair & left him) and gave it to his first wife as her engagement ring. [more inside]

Wedding commitment symbol that is not a ring?

Let's say you want to marry someone, but they don't want a ring. This would be because the person doesn't ever wear rings, not wanting to draw attention to their hands (long story, just know that hand-oriented things are out). What other options are there for a wedding token? Are there cool options from cultures that do not have the wedding ring as part of their history? Any non-hand-based suggestions are welcome.

Which ring adjuster for an engagement ring?

I am now wearing a shiny new engagement ring (yay!), but it's sliding a bit more on my finger than I'm comfortable with (boo!). I suspect it's just because of the cold weather and so I don't want to get it resized yet (and besides, I have larger knuckles). I'm looking for opinions on what type of ring-size adjuster I should use until I determine whether this ring is the right size. Options listed inside. [more inside]

What worth a pearl ring?

My mother gave me a pearl ring (one white and one black natural pearls on a simple silver band, can't find a close match online) to give to my fiance. It's incredibly small, and I would absolutely need to have it resized to fit her finger, by at least a half size, and as much as a whole size. What would that cost, and given the ring, is it worth it? It's from about 1970 or so. I'm in Chicago, is there any place that you can recommend?

Men's casual rings in NYC?

I'm looking for a men's thumb ring in the NYC area. I've never had a ring before, so I'm looking for something inexpensive, simple and casual to see if I like it first. Inexpensive is definitely under $50, preferably around $20. There's a lot of simple stuff I like here, but I'd really like to go somewhere I can get sized and try a bunch on in person.
