Kate Middleton Engagement Ring: Would You Wear Your MIL's Ring?ToniFitz76
Kate Middleton’s engagement ring used to belong to Prince William’s late mother, Princess Diana. Would you wear an engagement ring that had belonged to your mother-in-law? I’ve heard some people saying today they would not want to wear their MIL’s ring, but I disagree.
I’d be happy to wear my mother-in-law’s ring, for these three reasons:
1. It shows that family means something to my husband even moreso in this case, because Prince William could obviously afford to buy something bling-tacular. Instead, he chose to use a family heirloom.
2. It’s a beautiful way to honor his late mother. She can’t be at the wedding, but Diana will be there in spirit through the ring. I think it’s a beautiful gesture by a loving son.
3. It’s not the ring that matters; it’s the thought behind it. I will admit I’m not a big jewelry person, but I’d never judge my prince by his princess diamond. I’d judge him on him.
Of course, I also adore my mother-in-law, so I know I’m going against the grain. What do you think would you wear your mother-in-law’s ring?
