My grandmother was married around 1931. Her engagement ring is tiny. She was tiny. It was worn until she wore the gold in two on the band. I am not sure when this happened. She told us a lot about this ring when we were little but only what we asked and I'm sure I've forgotten a lot. My grandfather died many years before I was born. My grandparents were savers but never had large amounts of money and lived in a tiny southern Alabama town where an engagement ring for the daughter of a subsistence farmer was pretty unheard of. That makes this ring a curiosity. I look at and it seems as if it might be Edwardian but I'm no expert and wouldn't dare say so. I think there are markings but they are faint or almost rubbed out. I wonder if maybe it was a family heirloom and that is how my grandfather came to have even this tiny diamond ring to give to her. If anyone can give me any information about it I would be greatly appreciative. I want to have it repaired. Thanks in advance.
