This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

Something Borrowed

To finish my Heritage Bridal Collection, I picked back up on the family heirloom theme. Something "borrowed" was interpreted as the ring of a family matriarch, passed down to the new bride.

The Engagement Ring



After much debate in chat, it was determined that the engagement ring is typically the one with the diamond. I don't much fancy the EA ring, because it's not sparkly enough for me. I wanted something simple (yet shiny) to grace my sims' finger.

The Wedding Band

For some reason EA decided that females couldn't wear wedding bands, which I think is kinda silly.



So, I converted the male wedding band over to females.

The Stacked Rings



Annnnddd, bringing it all home, we have the stacked rings. Your new bride can display both her wedding ring and her engagement ring at the same time.

All rings are available for YA through elder, and have two channels (with the exception of the band, which only has one). The stacked rings are slaved to one another, meaning that they share the same texture.

Each ring comes with two versions, a studded one and a "plain" one. Plain simply means that it does not have a studded diamond overlay.

Looking for something blue?
Use CASt, kthnxbai.

Polygon Counts:
Engagement - 240
Wedding Band - 226

Stacked - 466

Additional Credits:
The black model's hair is an Anto conversion by Robodl95.

The bow hair is from the EA Store

My graphics are being shitty again...I'll try to update with better pictures later.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

No they are in the ring category, and the nails are in the glove category.

~happy dance~ Thank you!! I know it's too soon but thought I'd ask anyway.... can you make other stacked sets with larger diamonds in different styles? I love different choices of stacked sets!! BIg diamonds for my richer sims and all that When you get a sec or three... no rush Otherwise, I'm happy with this

Okay you read everyone's subconscious simming mind, including mine! I was just manually putting on wedding rings to their respective owners (how annoying that you have to go through all of the outfits to put rings on) and I thought, how boring is the selection? Especially for women? Thank you thank you thank you!!!

OMG Thank you! It kills me that married Sims have the ring animation when they get engaged, but then it disappears. What's up with that? Thank you Dal!
