    @FutureMrsCee:  Of course I’d change it….as sentimental as I am….Mr. 99 is the thing I would never change, everything else is up for debate!

    @FutureMrsCee:  Nope!  There’s something way too special about it.  My mom has traded hers up several times, I guess that’s for her, but I wouldn’t ever think about it. Why mess with perfection?

    After my fiancé proposed, we thought that maybe the ring was slightly too small (it fit but was a struggle to put on and off) and he offered to change it for a larger size. I said, absolutely not…I wanted the ring that he proposed with! I said, if he got me a new ring then he would have to propose again (which I didn’t really want either!) I have since had the ring resized…but my ring is special because he proposed with it, something he found quite difficult to do as he gets quite nervous.

    @FutureMrsCee:  I might change it if he gave me another ring, but I wouldn’t just go out and buy myself another ring and I wouldn’t get rid of, sell or trade-in my current ring (not that I could really get anything for it). I wouldn’t wear it as a RHR either. If I had two rings maybe I would wear whichever I felt like wearing that day.

    I voted maybe.. but in thinking about it I don’t know that I actually would.  I’d consider adding a band to match my (future) wedding band on the top in 5 or 10 years. I’m happy with my current ring, and I think I’ve got enough bling going on. Plus there will always be someone with a bigger, blingier ring… to me , size/stats isn’t so much what matters anymore.

    I won’t change mine, it is more than just a piece of jewelry to me.  Other people may feel differently, that if the ring they were proposed to with wasn’t exactly what they wanted/all they could afford at the time they will change it later.

    If I wanted a different ring I would get one to wear on my right hand and keep my engagement ring on my left hand where it belongs.

    I probably wouldn’t change it because I just don’t see the point.  I love the ring I got, but I’m really not a jewelry person.  The sentimental value will always be far greater than the object itself for me.

    I might. I really, really love my ring and love that it’s the one he used to propose to me with. But, maybe one day in the future, I wouldn’t mind an upgrade. It’s funny but when he gave it to me, he discussed upgrading it in the future. I was shocked and said no way because it was perfect. I purposely picked a setting that I think I will love forever (who knows? tastes and styles change!). But maybe in 10 ro 20 years, as an anniversary gift or something, I don’t see the problem. I actually do want a 2nd one in rose gold with a pink sapphire so I can switch them out, because you know.. white doesn’t match everything #firstworldproblems.

    @FutureMrsCee:  yep, and I did at the 8 year mark.  Now, at 11 years, I’m doing it again (because I lost it).  

    As long as I get to keep my amazing man, that’s all that matters!

    I would have liked thicker band with my solitiare, but I decided to leave it alone.   Men, while very strong can have fragile egos, and while they may NEVER say it… I think most would think it was hurtful if they put their heart i something and you wanted to switchit out.   So I will keep it till the day I die, that is unless he decides he wants me to have a new ring.  Otherwise, I am fine with it…. and for me personally, my future hubby is a divorced father with three girls, so I know how much he sacraficed and put his heart into the process.

    I would love an anniversary ring for a very large anniversary (20th, 25th, 50th) but only if I could keep this ring as well. Clearly this is only if we have extra money lying around…and we already have a boat….
