    Mine isn’t small, but it’s not large, it’s 1.11 center cushion and I can’t imagine it not being my e-ring…I don’t think I’d ever upgrade, unless something terrible happened to my ring and I had no choice.

    No, there are no plans to upgrade my ring.  My center is already bigger than I thought I’d ever have and it just wouldn’t be worth it to buy a new one.

    No. It’s the one he chose for me.

    Never.  An engagement ring or stone just isn’t something that can be replaced.

    DH and I have always been open to the idea of upgrading my ring and passing my current ering down.

    Yes, my diamond is 1.07ct and I plan on resetting it into an art deco style halo.  That is my DHs fav style, and right now it is in a solitaire.  And then I will set a new diamond into the solitiare.  I want something between 2t and 3ct for the new stone.

    I voted no and I’m 95% sure on that but since I don’t actually HAVE my e-ring yet, I can’t be 100%. A little part of me could see upgrading the center stone from a 9×7 to a 10×8 or from a yellow sapphire to a yellow diamond at some point but I think it’s because it doesn’t have emotional attachment yet.

    I don’t know.

    I’d like to one day, ideally I’d like to upgrade my 1.1 ct to a 2-2.5 ct center stone. However, my FI and I have a mutual understanding that our money is better spent on a house, retirement, college funds, ect.

    Both of our careers have the potential to be lucrative, so if we end up having the extra money to upgrade my stone, fantastic. If not, I love my ring as is and would be completely content to put that money else where.

    We do.  We both fell in love with a setting that was close to what our total budget was at the time (around 5k), and since having a diamond wasnt a huge priority  for me, we chose a yellow citrine for the centre.  Being part of the quartz family, its a little soft though, and I already have a couple of tiny scratches across the table, so for our 5year we’re looking at replacing it with a yellow diamond.

    We are actually in the process of upgrading my stone right now. We got engaged in October and our wedding is October of this year. I decided I wanted to change from a .5 center to 1.04 center before the wedding, because that is when the rings will be more sentimental for me, after we have said our vows, and have the rings blessed. I love the setting fiancé picked but we had no issues changing the center stone to what I wanted

    My princess diamond centre stone is 1.78 cts, so it’s big enough for me! Plus pave on the sides and band…plenty of bling:)

    Nope. I have a .7ct I love. He choose it for cut, color and clarity. I think he made a great choice. I just don’t see the value in upgrading and spending more money on something that is just sitting on my finger. Instead, I bought a wedding band that was reasonable ($399) and I think compliments my e-ring really well. I love them together and do not plan on changing them. 🙂

    will never get rid of the original, but will probably get more e-rings in the future, while always holding on to the original one.
