I just wanted to see if anyone else was doing what I was doing and taking the diamond from their e-ring and putting it into a whole different ring for their wedding ring. We looked all over and could not find a wedding band that looked good with my e-ring, so after much thought we decided to buy a whole new ring. I would like to keep the e-ring band and have something else set in there. But, I’m not sure what and how much that will cost… Has anyone else done this?
Here is my e-ring…

@hmmtmar: I have done this…. Was not liking my first Ering setting with 1.75 ct center as I felt it was too large to sit on top of halo ring….. So we selected a new pave style to fit a larger diamond…. Then SO saw the blue diamond for original Ering and the ret is history…. Blue diamond is a 1.20 ct…. I love both my erings and wear blue as my RHR

You couldn’t find anything to match a Tiffany style solitaire on a knife edge band? Anything would go with that ring! I have a channel set half eternity to go with mine. I wouldn’t change your ring – it’s gorgeous!

I donlt understand… your e-ring is a classic, OP! It will go with pretty much any wedding band, including the most traditional (a simple precious metal band).

That is what I am doing! My FI knew I wanted a custom design so he bought me a tiffany setting for engagement ring and we are creating a new ring that I will get on my wedding day! 🙂

@hmmtmar: Yep! I kept my same center stone and got a new setting. I did the opposite of you though, lol.. My first setting was too intricate and detailed and didn’t match with any wedding bands I had seen, so I switch to a tiffany style knife edge solitaire (similar to what you have now) and I loooove it. It’s so timless!
And yes, you can definitely keep your current setting and put a gemstone in it! It wouldn’t cost much at all, depending on what kind of stone you want. http://www.gemselect.com has some awesome gemstones for good prices, just make sure to keep it the same shape and around the same size as your diamond so that they don’t have to make the prongs bigger (that will get a little pricey) 🙂

@october22: Thank you 🙂 You ring is very pretty (both of them!)
I completey agree that the ring is timeless! That’s why I fell in love with it imediately when originally trying on e-rings with FI.
@oneofthesethings: There was just nothing that I liked I guess. I’m a little weird and picky…I originally wanted what you have, but I found it to be unbalanced.

Why don’t you get a statement wedding ring and move your engagement ring to your right hand. It is such a beautiful ring.

You could always get a band for each side.

Yes, you definitely can do this!
OP, I completely understand your feelings. I was originally proposed to with a solitaire — I agree solitaires are classic and timeless and go with everything — but it just felt a little too simple for my taste. I wanted a more sparkly/blingy setting and DH told me to pick whatever I wanted. I found a setting I liked, and our jeweler just removed the “basket” (the metal prong thing holding your diamond together) and popped it into the new setting. It cost $125 which included re-sizing the new setting.
Go for it! My advice would be to take your time and try on lots of different styles. And before you actually get a new setting and have the work done, try to find a CZ version of the look you’re going for. Wear the CZ version for a couple of weeks to help you be sure that you know what you really want. Right now I’m wearing a CZ halo as a RHR and I’m trying to decide if I want to get a “real” one in morganite and/or diamond.

I think your setting is STUNNING! But if you don’t like it, you can definitely get a new one and stick a gemstone in that setting!
