I’m mulling over two different rings right now, one is classic and clean, the other is antique-y with many little details. I *think* I want the classic one more, but part of me wonders if I’ll ever wish I went with something more unique. (Another part of me thinks I’ll be happier over the years with something simple, yet still beautiful.)
Have you ever wanted to change the style of your e-ring? What style did you start off with and what style did you want after (and why)?
Would love to hear from you bees who are totally happy with what you have, too!

This is my original erng that my husband proposed with
I got married very young and wasn’t much into jewellery. This one caught my eye and we both thought it was beautiful, so bought it. Fast forward 7 years. My friends all have white gold or platinum and diamonds and I have been on the hive looking at rings for months and am convinced I don’t like my ring anymore and it’s not really me etc and I want something more up to date. My love hubby upgrades my ring and buys me this, which I chose…
It is very pretty and fits in well with all my friends bling but I miss my sapphire terribly. I am currently having the diamonds of the new ring reset into a right hand ring and wearing my original ering. I was stupid to second guess my first choice, I thought I wanted a change of style but it just didn’t feel right. I love my ring. Go with your heart and choose the one that really speaks to you and gives you butterflies. Don’t worry about the future, choose the ring that you adore and you will always love it.

I so worried about this! That’s why I want a ring that’s just a plain solitaire, because it’s something I could never get sick of. But there are also so many beautiful different styles I would be missing out on

I have a princess cut solitaire in a trellis setting and I am SO in love with it! But sometimes I wish that I had a gemstone right, or an emerald cut, or maybe even an antique looking ring….always something. But at the end of the day I realize that I love my ring the way it is and that my Fiance did an AMAZING job and I wouldn’t trade it in for anything in the world!
Go with what you love, don’t worry about what you will think of it years from now because honestly, you’ll probably love it just as much!

I think you can never go wrong with a classic solitaire with a simple design. it will never go out of style, and you can pair it with so many different kinds of wedding bands. also, it’s easier to keep clean!

Yes! After I saw all these beautiful detailed rings, especially halos, I wanted one too! I got a very simple solitaire on pave band, just smooth all around, no detail, or fancy scrollwork. And I loved how you get the apperaance of an even bigger center with the halo. My husband haates if I mention changing anything about my ring, so I (shhhh) secretly tried on some halos while shopping with a friend and thankfully found that they werent for me. So I never actually change it and totally dont have the desire to anymore.

I had never thought about changing my rings stlye before. I was thinking about getting a second band for the other side so started looking online & found a setting for a little over 200 dollars! I thought how cheapppp & beautiful the setting was & thought about getting it since it would cost about the same as a second band would. But over all I could not change my ring! I only thought about it because the setting was so cheap. Nothing more!
Here is my ring & I would never change it:

@pinkshoes: trying different ring styles is a very good idea! once, while mine was away being appraised, I wore a CZ that was my dream design. after a week or so, I realized that it was way too big for my taste and I missed my smaller ring!
@lumos: so if you’re in doubt: maybe buy a CZ ring in the style you like and wear it around the house. if you don’t like it, then maybe the other style is more for you!

Keep in mind that filigree/engraved designs will wear down over time 😉 I opted for a classic solitaire because the way I see it, I can always get an ornate right hand ring or earrings/necklace.

I have thought about it, however I am a touch sentimental, and it would make hubby cry too!
Instead, I have several stunning right hand rings which I interchange.

yes. all i ever wanted my whole life was a princess cut solitaire. in my mind, it wasn’t an engagement ring if it wasn’t a solitaire. why? because that’s what you see on tv and cartoons and pictures.
then i came on here to the bee… started looking at ring porn. and i realized all these different styles that were out there! i didn’t even know these types of rings existed! i still want a princess cut, but i want a halo now too…

I never looked at rings before I tried them on one day with my now-fiance. I only tried on a few and I fell instantly in love with a princess cut ring with little diamonds on the band. It is absolutely stunning, very classic looking.
Now that I love looking at ring porn on the bee, I wonder whether I should have looked at more rings? Don’t get me wrong, I love my ring. But I have to say, halo rings really catch my eye, and I had never seen one before I started looking on here!

I do want to change mine, but I only want to turn the stones so they are in a kite setting rather than straight. I have a 3 stone princess cut ring btw. 🙂

I chose a princess cut engagement ring 3 years ago when I got engaged. I was only 21. Now I wish I had chosen a more classic cut. The princess cut seems like it will be dated. I think if I were to chose a new ring it would still be a solitare but probably an emerald cut or a round so it would be classic forever. I’m hoping to convince my husband that I need an upgrade as a baby gift when we get pregnant…so I can save the e-ring I have now to give to our firstborn one day (or if it’s a he, to his future wife)

Nope, never wanted to change it and I probably won’t. Even if I ever did an upgrade for any reason, it would be the same style. Halo all the way!
