    When my husband and I got engaged we were broke college students.  We both got money from our parents to buy $150 matching plain white gold mens’ bands (he proposed with mine, and I gave him his at the wedding).  Now we’re older.  He earns a lot of money, and our friends are all starting to get engaged.  They have beautiful custom platinum rings with lots of stunning gemstones.  I was ony for a second jealous of their beautiful rings.  Our rings reflect who we were at the time we first fell in love.  It’s a reminder of the journey we’ve had together.  I don’t think it’s silly to feel sentimental for your original ring.  And maybe you should keep it.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so it really comes down to what YOU think. Hope things look up for you! Sounds like it would be helpful to take a day for yourself, to relax, and decompress from all of the stress in your life 🙂

    Your rings are GORGEOUS! Just let yourself recover from the last week before making any big decisions.

    @oxstardust421xo:  I would size up, and not worry about the actual number of the size.  Different widths of bands fit differently.  As women, we could wear one size one week and a different size the next week, depending on what day we are in our cycle.  

    My wedding rings that I lost 3 weeks ago were: Ering: 4.5 and wedding band: 4.25.  I just replaced my ring today and I got a size 5, guess my finger swelled, lol.  I bet I will have to make another trip once the cold weather sets in.  

    Can you maybe not go up a whole size and leave your ering the same size?  If you live in a cold winter state, they might end up being too big.  

    Get some rest, and when you’re refreshed, you’ll love your bling bling again!!  🙂

    @oxstardust421xo:  You actually have a design very similar to what we were originally looking for! It looks beautiful. If you want to have it look less “traditionally blingy” then you could consider changing the stones in the guard to colored gem stones, eventually.

    I personally don’t really love the enhancer/band look. Sorry to be a downer, just wanted to give an opinion. I think as long as you and FI love it, you should be happy!

    I think it’s beautiful! I love enhancers….I wish I could have gotten one.

    It’s still your original ring….to me, it’s no different then just putting a wedding band with your e-ring. I agree that once you get it sized and it fits good…I’m sure you will be happy with it.

    You probably are just feeling down from the past week and are having second thoughts.  I think it’ll just take some getting use to seeing it on your hand everyday.  It does look really pretty and unique! And it’s still the original diamond he gave you!  This enhancer just represents your new life together as a married couple 🙂

    If this makes you feel any better – I was like that all the time, with everything.. my now husband said something to me – “make a decision, and stand by your decision” – that motto’s help me with alot things in my life when I have feelings of regret.  I hope that helps you!

    I guess it depends on if you love 3-stone rings or not. Personally, I like the elegance of a solitaire. I’m sure plenty of others like the style of 3 stone rings. Then others who think anything that adds more diamonds is good.

    All depends on your personal preference, I would not get hung up on the “it must look exactly like the day it was given to me,”..its still the same diamond, ring, etc… The ring is just a symbol, the relationship is what counts. Relationships grow and change, so can the rings that symbolize it.
