Can you post a top view of your ring? I’m not really sure what you mean by changing the top. Do you mean the top of the band or do you mean the basket for the diamond?

@bride2bee21:  I’m not sure if you can alter it. I would ask a jeweler…But, if you can’t just know that it is absolutely beautiful! Congrats on your engagement.

You’d have to see the jeweler, but I doubt they’d just be able to alter the setting – my guess is they’d probably have to cast an entirely new one to get the same look.  If you can’t, you could always get a wedding band with a similar design – it would still be cohesive.  

For example, something like this with milgrain:

What a beautiful ring!! I understand wanting those gorgeous vintage scrolls and milgrain on the top too. What a contrast between the top and profile! I have to say I look at the profile of my ring too, as much as the top. 

Not sure what a jeweler could do..perhaps add milgrain? Consult a good jeweler to see. My impression is that you’ll need a new setting if you want to change the top. 

Now the other issue is that your fiance seems to take a lot of pride in picking out the “perfect” ring for the woman “he knows so well”. I’m more of fan of women absolutely loving their ring but there’s all kinds of mentalities our there 😉 So you have to weigh in how much this would hurt his ego…

Good luck and congrats on getting engaged!
