I remember seeing in a movie she put the ring on him. But I thought it was fabricated because I think she put it on his ring finger and there is no way it would fit; plus I have a hard time believing a widow at that moment so close to seeing her husband murdered would have the mindset to put her wedding ring on her husband so it could go with him; it's such a nice and symbolic gesture that I just didn't think a woman going through such a crisis could have thought to do it.
Melting the rings into one is quite a beautiful idea that I have never heard of before. I usually hear of the spouse still living just keeps them both and sometimes continues to wear theirs. Melting the rings and what Jackie did is a good way to symbolize that you are technically and legally no longer married.

Jackie did put her wedding ring on the President's finger but later it was returned to her. She wore the ring even after her marriage to Onassis. She wore both wedding rings on her left ring finger.

As far as I know it is not illegal for jewelry to be buried with the wearer. My mother was buried with her ring & a cross. My grandmothers were buried with their wedding rings.

That would be wonderful if that happened. It's my all time favorite engagement ring.

Ii thought it was interesting to see which jewelers made the royal engagement rings. these are those t I found so far:

Garrards seem popular amongst the british royals: Diana's, Sophie's and Sarah's engagement rings come from them

Hancocks made Zara's ring

W.A. Bolin made Victoria's (and possibly Sofia's)

Van Cleef and Arpels designed Margrethe's

Maison Repossi made Charlene's

Harry Winston for Soraya of Iran (22 carats!)

Madeleine's ring (by Jonas) was by Cartier

Cartier for Grace
