Yesicawest:  The stone used isn’t what makes your relationship special, it’s the bond that you and your FI have that makes the ring worth anything emotionally; the stone is just an object.  In my opinion you have two options: sell the stone and get something completely different, or get over it.

a diamond is just that- a diamond. i don’t see it as having any strings attached, because he set it into a setting that was yours. it’s not like he gave you the same ring he gave her.

just don’t tell people. put it to the back of your mind. because it doesn’t matter. when people ask, tell them it’s an heirloom stone.

Honestly. I dont think I would ever be ok with that..knowing he bought that diamond for her..my ex fiance is now engaged again and traded in the diamond to put towards her new ring i was upset because I wanted him to save the ring fot our daughter some day but if he would have given to his fiance I would have been furious. .if this is something you cant get over you could trade it in for another diamond..but mmaybe once your married and have your wedding band it wont bother you anymore..

My DH was previously engaged, and he used the same center stone in my ring. I didn’t see a problem with it, it’s just a stone. Better that he didn’t have to lose all that money he spent on it in the first place, and my setting makes it unique to me. You don’t have to tell the story about how he got the stone if you don’t want to.

It’s really a beautiful ring!

At this point though, since you already agreed to re-using the diamond I would just say let it go! I understand it’s hard to have something from the past but since you made the decision it was okay I think it would be inconsiderate to change your mind now that you are getting married and everything is underway.

Girl, I would take that ring ina heartbeat.. enjoy it!
