@208bride- I know exactly where you are coming from!! I had some of the same insecurities about my ring since we got engaged with my promise ring and had people ask me that exact question ” when’s he getting you a real ring” ugh. We then were gifted my husbands moms engagement ring (from a broken marriage) that was 1/3 carat. I found a wrap that gave it enough pizzaz but never soldered them together in hopes of upgrading at some point, and I’m VERY thankful I didn’t! We just ordered my new set and I’m now selling the wrap and keeping his moms ring for sentimental value. Ultimately you have to be in love with what you are wearing and looking at everyday! My suggestion is to either ramp up the look of the ring with a new wrap, maybe one with pave diamonds on either side since it sounds like you like that look or you could see how much room you have to go bigger with the center stone in the wrap you have. if you do decide to get a whole new set you can always make the set you have now a right hand ring since that is the first ring he proposed with. Good luck and keep us posted, I’d love to see what you end up going with!!!

First of all. Theta Love!!  


Second, if you solder it, you can unsolder it later.  😉  So no worries there.  I am sorry you do not love your ring.  🙁

I agree, it can be unsoldered. So, don’t worry about that! But, personally, I wouldn’t change a thing! Maybe an upgrade on the size of the stone, but your set is gorgeous!

anything that has been soldered can be released, if that helps your decision. soldering does not have to be permanent.
