Experiencing the loss of a spouse is emotional. It brings about so many uprooting life changes such as the “taking off” of wedding rings.
I’ve had many clients ask…
Is there a “right” time to stop wearing my wedding rings after the loss of my husband?
Should a widow or widower still wear their wedding rings?
I don’t wear my weddings rings any more and my children don’t want them. I wouldn’t sell them…what can I do?
There is no right or wrong protocol.
You may continue to wear your wedding rings as they bring you comfort. Over time you may decide to remove them, a difficult thing to do after you’ve been wearing them every day for years. They hold great sentiment.
If you decide you’re ready to make a change…
Jeanette, I’m so pleased!!!It’s wonderful to have a ring back on my hand and I can’t tell you how many compliments I’ve had this week. My daughter and son will be contacting you soon. They also want to have a special piece in memory of their Dad.Thank you for your infinite patience and kindness,~ M. Stokes – Vermont
