We parceled the rings out to different descendants. I'm now holding my father's wedding ring to be worn by one of my sons, who is about to become engaged, and my mother's engagement and wedding rings have been split between my sister and me.

It's interesting that you have all the family rings on one bracelet!
My grandparents and parents had no other children. My aunt and uncle had a son but my aunt died in childbirth and the boy died in childhood. I have very few memories of my parents. My uncle was more like a father to me. So yes, I have all the family rings and heirlooms.

Mine is put away in my jewelry box. It's just a small plain white gold band. It's a part of my past.

I get rashes under rings in the summer and have never worn them all of the time. Not even when I was married.

I am very touched by the stories from the men on here who are still so in love with their late wives. Curmudgeon, I am so sorry for your recent loss. I have seen your name on here for years. I have often wondered what married people do about their wedding ring when a spouse dies. That would have to be a super-tough decision.

My father died in '72....when I married for the right time in '83, my mother presented to my bride and I my fathers band, and her band which was her mothers band. Both are treasured and worn proudly today...and will be passed on to the next generation when the time comes.

Mine is right where it has always been, and there it will stay. My husband was the love of my life. He just died on May 25 of this year. I'm still so very heartbroken.

I'm so sorry about that. This is still very fresh for you. I understand the intense pain and loss. Take care of yourself.
