So when fiance first proposed, I absolutely loved my ring. It was the perfect size and everything I could have wanted and more…. After a couple months of being engaged, the band started to get really tight on me and we were having a hard time finding a matching wedding band due to the design of the engagement ring. I really wanted a thin delicate wedding band with diamonds going around it, but it totally did not match my current setting of my engagement ring 🙁
After much debate, my fiance proposed an idea to me. He said I could decide whether or not to change the setting of my current engagement ring, or we could custom make a wedding band (estimate cost was close to $3000).
After much thinking and a lot of debate, I decided to go with a delicate engagment ring setting with an added halo. A friend of mine is in the jewerly business, so after talking to her, we came up with the perfect setting that would go perfect with a thin delicate wedding band that I wanted!
Without further due…. here is my new setting! 🙂 and I absolutely LOVE it.
Can’t believe how much of a difference a setting makes! It is the same diamond in the old and new setting 🙂

So pretty! I am going to have my diamond reset in a halo too. Your old setting was pretty too but I just love the halo!

@tweedy902: LOVE IT!! I did the same thing and could not believe what a difference it made!! 🙂 I advise all ladies before exchanging their ring to look into a new setting with their current stone, it’s crazy what a difference it can make!!
