I have a second hand diamond in my ring.

How it came to be there is quite a story:

When I originally went e-ring shoping with my then BF I chose the setting and then we chose the diamond size (about 0.5ct seemed perfect).

He was pleased a punch when he got me exactly the ring I wanted for a real bargain (to good to be true) with 0.6ct diamond, when I got it, it was beautiful but the diamond seemed kind of small, I was pretty dissapointed but thought, its what I chose, and it was still beautiful. But it bothered me and when he showed me the valuation I found out why, it was 0.6ct TDW, spread over the e-ring and wedding ring! No wonder he got such a bargain, the actual diamond was really only 0.25ct.

It didnt bother me to much and I kept wearing it, but soon after we got married someone he knew was selling a 0.5ct solitair ring for very little after his engagement ended and my Hubby bought it for me and I had the diamond swapped.

Overall the new diamond on my old ring, even with the work cost about half what we had originally planned to spend on a 0.5ct, because he got the second one so cheap second hand.

And I still have my little diamond which I think ill get made into a solitair ring to represent our first child.
