I wonder if the original ring could actually be turned into a halo with a small blue diamond in the centre? Or as you said adding more metal, maybe have it hand engraved with a Celtic pattern. Might be worth taking it to a jeweller to find out what they can do, then you can still give her the blue diamond she wanta, wiht a little added bling and Celtic design all in one

LadyCapricorn:  if you go with option 3, it will be the most sentimental. Definitely go into a jeweler and ask. Once you tell her the story behind it and how you customised it just for her she’ll really appreciate it, if she’s a sentimental person. 

In terms of your other options, definitely don’t give her a Topaz if you know she isn’t interested in it at all. She may not complain about it but as you said, she won’t be proud of it. 

If you customise the ring you have now with a blue diamond she’ll be sharing that story with anyone who’ll listen.

1.  Have a secret blue diamond set at the base of the current stone so that it can only be seen from the side, or

2  Have the blue diamond set into the inside of the band.  Only she will know that it is there.

3.  Buy a ring that you know that she will really like.  Keep this ring for an anniversary.

What about London Blue Topaz to give her the look until you could afford the real thing?
