If you upgraded; what did you do with your original stone?

NovaRising:  Your pendant is beautiful! I love all the gorgeous color it reflects, and I’ll bet it is super sparkly. Such a great setting for it, too. I think it really shows off the beauty of your stone.

When my DH surprised me with an upgrade, I ended up keeping my original ERing intact. At first, I was going to take the center stone from it and put it into the new setting, but my husband decided we should get a larger stone. (I definitely didn’t argue with that — ha, ha!)

This is my original lovely lady. I hope to pass her down to my daughter one day.

I upgraded from a 1ct  rb bezel to a 1.5 ct OEC in a cushion cut halo. I kept the my bezel, I LOVE it. It is put away for my daughter and I can’t wait for the day I see her with it on. DH knew I would lose my mind if I had to ever give it up.

Pretty! My jeweler has a policy where you can trade your diamond in (after a year) and they give you 110% of the price you paid. You only have to spend $1 more! 

So when I got a new diamond it was traded in for the old one.

My diamond was from FMIL.  Someday, I hope to pass it down to one of our children.  My FI took the diamond out of his mom’s setting and put it in one we picked out together,  so I would probably do the same thing (keep my setting for myself, pass the diamond down).
