We purchased my rings from a family jeweler and he gave us this as an option as well. I had an old ring with diamonds that I was never going to wear again and was thinking about using it to create my wedding band. The stones were of lesser quality in comparison to my engagement ring. Since he was also an appraiser, he suggested taking it as a trade in towards the band that went with my ring. 

Instead of getting a simple shadow band; I was able to get one with diamonds for what I would’ve paid for just a white gold band. He gave me 3 times what I thought the ring was worth. It’s a wonderful way to cut costs and still hold on to the sentimental values that the jewelry holds.
