I don’t have ring regret, but I do know that one e-ring will be hard for me because I am such a jewelry freak that I just want them all!

I think at this point the problem isn’t that you don’t like your ring, it’s that you wish you had more in order to switch it up. I wouldn’t do anything to get rid of the one you have now, I would just start saving up and give him the money you save and ask him to add to it to buy another ring of your choosing for a holiday or your b-day 🙂

I guess I kinda have ring regret. I wanted and got morganite. I loved it when I saw it online and the shaped that I picked, which is oval, decided the setting that its in. Its set in a halo with a split shank and pave with diamonds. My issue with my ring now is that the halo has a basket and the morganite, since its so pale and has a few facets, seems like it collects dirt like none other in the basket under the stone! It takes away from the color making it look dingy and when you look directly into the stone, it looks fuzzy. It looks like a craptastic diamond! I told my husband this and his solution was to get another morganite but I dont want another one.. this is the one he got me when he was in Iraq (deployed) so I plan on keeping it forever, setting it in a vintage silver comb to pass on.Sooo then he said we will just put a diamond in the center, but I dont know yet.

* oops.. I havent gotten the hang on this yet 🙂

@Metalkisses:  put a diamond, keep the morganite to pass on or wear as a pendant because it is beryl and really brittal and soft for rings anyway…

 

@ImeldaV:  don’t fret

@Kat:  +1 I think that’s exactly what she should do

I think that @KatNewby is absolutely right. I get sick of mine too from time to time and wish I had something else, it is a looooong time to be wearing the same ring! However I am getting a new e-ring/weedding ring, we just had our 4th anniversary and since we now are 4 (we now have two beautiful daughters) my husband wanted to get me something. Very sweet of him and I knew instantly that I wanted a new ring to symbolize our marriage and familiy (made a post about it her on the board, a ruby three stone) so I can switch around and change things up if I want. I love jewelry and especially rings ( ‘cos you get to look at them all the time lol) but if is very important to me that any new ring has meaning to it, that it’s not just a pretty ring, but symbolizes something by the stones or inscription or whatever. Maybe you could wait and get a new ring, e-ring/new band/RHR, for your anniversary or something? In the meantime, try taking the ring off for a while, that might sound odd, but you will probably realize that you really miss it when not on your finger!

Why dont you use different stackers with your ring to change up the look. That is what I do and it keeps my ADD at bay.

I just posted about this!  I sometimes get “sick” of wearing my wedding set every day.  I wish I had some options to switch it up from time to time!  I love my wedding set, but I feel like I would love it more if I could wear something else from time to time and switch it up!

sometimes i think i should have got a brilliant cut. But i love my ring because my FI chose it.  And its DEFINITELY been an adjustment to wear it every day and remember it.  I never used to wear a ring on that hand and now none of my other rings go with it.

I definitely had ring regret. twice haha. The first time I traded in the center diamond and setting and upgraded to a bigger diamond and a new halo setting. The second time I kept the center diamond and reset it into a solitaire setting with an eternity wedding band. I love my ring the way it is now – simple, classic, beautiful. But I am like you, I have no routine and like to change things up all the time. So I occasionally buy cz rings from HSN that I really like for when I feel like wearing something different. They really are good quality there, and always look real to me. Plus when I wear them for a few days, it makes me love and appreciate my diamond rings all over again.

ETA: I just had my second baby and my fingers are still a little swollen, so here’s what I’ve been wearing lately until my diamond ring fits again – cz cathedral ring, created sapphire eternity band (both from HSN)

I understand how you feel!  I love my ering, but it’s very tall and gets knocked around a lot.  So I ordered a 5 stone from Berricle, and am loving it.

Beloved ering:

Berricle ring that makes me happy:

Berricle’s a great place to get your fix when you want something different.  Also, remember there are birthdays, holidays, and anniversaries!  Down the road, you can get something different as an anniversary gift, and switch things up once in a while.  It’s a lot easier to have more options when you like cheaper alternatives like moissy.

Oh, I came back to say that I actually DID had a certain ring regret actually, in that I initially started out with a RB 9mm Moissy, and then upgraded to an OEC Amora 9mm Moissy before we had the ring created.

I’ve never had ring regret about the shape/size/etc, but I HAVE had regret about the center stone. I love my moissanite, but I’ve always wanted color! Something that has a pop, so to speak. I know, I could’ve gotten colored moissanite, but I didn’t really want that…I wanted london blue topaz or garnet. I ended up caving to pressure and letting FI buy the clear stone, but I have had a tinge of sadness when I don’t see color. I satisfy that with LOTS of RHR’s, and FI always reminds me “Anniversary ring, sweetie. I’ll get you whatever stone you want.” Hah. 🙂

Sometimes I get tired of wearing the same thing all the time. So some days I’ll wear just my wedding band and some days I’ll wear just my e-ring, but mostly I wear the set. I don’t like the idea of changing it just because I’m tired of it though. Someone once said to me that the ring symbolizes marriage and sometimes you’ll be tired of your marriage and worn down by it being the same all the time (maybe you’re in a rut), but you can’t just upgrade your marriage or change it and get a new one and the ring should reflect that commitment you made to the person.

@Metalkisses:  i had the same problem with an amethyst RHR… since i only wear it every once in a while, i didnt do anything about it. but sounds like you should replace it with something else… i know you giys aee thinking diamond which would be beautiful, but maybe look into peachy pink moissanite if you did love the color. it sparkles and has a cut more similar to a diamond so you shouldnt have the dirt/see through problemyou do now.
