  • Give them to 1 (or more) of her children? Have them made into something else- necklace, different style ring? She can remove the stones and melt the rings down, then put the stones into a new setting. Save them for her grandchildren?

  • What about using those pieces to turn into a new piece of jewelry to represent her new life.

  • I had and ex whose father was married 4xs. He melted them all down into one band and put a diamond in the middle. Your mom might be able to make some other jewelry

  • I love the idea of them going to the grandchildren. It would be really special since you have your grandma's rings.

  • she could have the gold and stuff melted down to make a totally different band/setting and use the diamonds in a different arrangement
