my FH didnt have a ring when he proposed. we picked something out together 🙂 it was like $100! Now He picked out something a little more expensive and better quality. He said he wants me to be happy I don’t think it matters if it was the first ring or the second ya know? that ring is symbolic for you, so keep it and give it to your daughter one day or wear it as a necklace 🙂

I have had two new rings since my original engagement ring, however in each of these rings I’ve kept my center stone. I don’t regret changing mine.

On the drama of rings! Let me share my huge ring mess (hopefully it will make you feel better! My Fiance and I went through a few different ringsbefore the proposal to find the “perfect” one and the ring my Fiance proposed with was a beautiful canary with a halo, but the stones started falling out after 2 days! Then, the second (which I wear now) is beautiful, but it is a yellow gold solitaire with a setting that is almost impossible to find a band for (without having one custom made), plus his band is white metal – and I wanted our bands to match as much as possible. So, we decided to get me a new ring to wear as my wedding ring and take the main stones from my other rings to make a white gold necklace that I can wear everyday and still keep close to my heart.

Maybe you could do something similar, or change out your ring on your anniversary?

Can you have a ring made with the stone(s) in the original?

@Kafrine:  If you don’t like it, you probably won’t regret it. I’d feel like a ring from a divorced couple was jinxed anyway (even though that’s kinda silly). I’d want my own, new ring.

Can’t you keep it somewhere anyway? Like surely the re-sale value is miniscule by this point, why not keep it if you’ll only make a few hundred bucks off of it?

My Fiance proposed with a stand in ring which had a 0.25ct diamond in it and then we went and shopped for my forever ring together. I am having my original diamond set in a solitaire necklace which I am planning to wear on my wedding day and then turn into an heirloom as I am hoping my future daughter/daugher in law will then wear it for their wedding day as their something old.
