Gold can be remelted and recast into a new ring.

Yes, what you are asking can be done. It will be spendy though. You will need to research jewelers in your area. I would go to a jeweler that has an onsite shop, instead of one that will send the ring away and then sent back.

It would probably be less expensive for you to trade the ring in for another ring that he likes better.

Hmm, all excellent questions (to which I don’t know the answers!), but it sounds reasonable that you could reuse the gold from his current ring to make something new. Reusing gold is done all the time. However, it might be more expensive since there are two gold types involved. Still, never say never. Ask a jeweler to find out for sure though.

Can you sell your first wedding band you picked out, so that you can afford the new ring for him?

Jewelers can definitely melt down any rings you have, and if you have enough of the metal you want to use, you should just be paying for labor. My mother has had pieces made for me, my sister and herself out of our Grandmother and Aunt’s old jewelry. Try an independent jeweler though, not a chain like Zales or anything,  I do not know if they offer any such services.
