alabamagirl:  So the top is old and the bottom is new? I think they are both gorgeous, the bottom is much more modern but equally as classy. Compliments your hand with the thinner band 🙂

Both rings are beautiful. But if you have been struggling with liking your reset for over a month now (given your past posts), perhaps you need to look into something else. I am NOT saying that the new ring isn’t gorgeous – it is. But I tend to think that if you were going to be satisfied with it, you would have settled on it or decided by now. You know that you probably don’t want to go back to your original setting, but is there something else you have been considering? I just think it’s a beautiful stone, and that you should love your ring, so it might be worth resetting one more time to get what you truly love. If I’m out of line, just ignore me.

I did not reset mine, but my DH upgraded my ring after 15 years. It is exactly what I wanted, but then again it is a relatively plain solitaire, so there isn’t much about the setting either to love or not to love! I find it very appealing that I can wear it stacked with other bands, diamond or plain, or just wear it with its plain wedding band I can change the look without changing the ring. Perhaps you don’t want to go back to a solitiare-type setting, but maybe something similar would appeal to you so that you could change the look of your rings depending on how you felt that day.

I think that once you have a ring you are truly happy with, you won’t have to let anything go; your worry will disappear on its own. Believe me, I understand how a person can obsess over rings and settings until it isn’t even fun anymore. I agonized over every detail about my new ring, and almost had a coronary decicing whether or not I wanted to custom make the shank to be 2 mm instead of 2.5 mm. Then I finally decided that I just couldn’t drive myself insane over .5 mm (nor justify paying significantly more for less ring, as they would have had to make a separate mould). 

I hope that you find the CZ setting to be something you love (though it is hard to not feel a little different about a ring that isn’t really the real deal without your own stone in it). Good luck!

alabamagirl:  I just had mine reset yesterday! I originally had a knife edge setting but I couldn’t get it to fit correctly and when my fingers shrunk a bit with the colder weather, it got really uncomfortable. I picked a new setting, but I miss my old one.. I’m hoping I’ll slowly adjust to the new one since it’s more comfortable and my diamond does sparkle more in it.

alabamagirl:  Wow, beautiful! I think getting rid of the halo and letting your center stone shine was a smart choice!!! 🙂 Gorgeous rock, sister! You rock it!!! LOL! 🙂

I had mine reset from a solitaire Leo to something with a little more bling. I never thought I wanted it more blingy but I went for it. i did regret the change at first Bc I was sad I didn’t have “the ring” he proposed with but now I couldnt love it more 😉 I think your reset is stunning!!!! And totally understand the feeling. Pics of my reset are below!! First is original solitaire, second is reset + wedding band

alabamagirl: awe thank you!!! once I realized my FI was happy that I was happy with it I felt a lot better. I didn’t want people to judge or him to be upset that I reset the ring he picked. I felt a little guilty Bc of it. Also once I found the wedding band for it I knew i did the right thing! It became my dream ring 🙂

The top is my original engagement ring, and the bottom is my current ring. I had it reset in a halo and it is exactly what I always wanted. I really love your reset! My thoughts are that you are going to wear the ring for the rest of your life, so you might as well love it!
