Ok, Ok…. So there have been many posts on here regarding bling size. This topic has led to much tension. Everyone has their own opinions on the subject, which is great. I just want to know the truth, anonymously…. If you had the option (no matter price, hand size etc) would you upgrade to a bigger ring? I don’t want any explanations just the TRUTH. Let’s see what the Beehave really has to say! Happy voting!

I would like to upgrade one day but I would also feel bad not wearing the orginal diamond given to me when proposed to.

i have a 1ct and im already planning on upgrading during the year, for no other reason than because we can
im thinking of keeping the current stone and buying something similar and having diamond earrings so i still have the original stone

I love my ring and don’t want to upgrade (it’s plenty big and a perfect color/clarity), but I won’t lie….10 or 15 years down the road I could see changing the band or upgrading the diamond if the option was given to me. I’d never ask though, it’d probably be like an anniversary gift or something if my guy offered. My FI got the diamond at a place that has 100% upgrade credit on the purchase price of the diamond, and he told me that as if it was part of the selling feature.

I’m not going to lie, if the opportunity presented itself in the future, i would love to upgrade.. but i would like it to be for an anniversary or something special.

Yes, I would and I fully intend on doing so. The main reason we chose my ring (yes, we picked it out together) was because of the band, which I absolutely love! The “center stone” is actually 7 smaller stones in the shape of a flower. I love my ring but we plan on upgrading to a large center stone in the near future. If we would have had to purchase the ring and the center stone when we got engaged, it would have been way over our budget.

I have to say yes because I don’t have one and even a twisty tie would be an upgrade, however if I still had my ring I would never trade it in because it was his moms =)

We will for an anniversary. He mentioned it last week. We’ve been married for a month and he’s already discussing it. LOL

I like the idea of upgrade down the road, but I’m not sure what I want to upgrade it to. Bigger size or better quality? I don’t want to upgrade unless the diamond looks dramatically different. And for a diamond to look dramatically different, it would costs a lot of money.
I can’t decide. There should be an “Undecided” option

No. First, it’s the family stone. I would never upgrade the family stone. Second, his parents loved me enough to give him the family stone to give to his knocked up girlfriend. Not the ideal circumstances, but that didn’t bother them. To upgrade my ring would be like me slapping him and his parents in the face.

We will “upgrade” eventually in that I will someday have another ring, but I will never part with the stone or ring that he proposed with. I actually don’t know if I even want to remove my stone for an upgrade from it’s current setting to put into a necklace or something because I love the ring so much as it is. But I love jewelry and I love diamonds so I will have another ring someday, but it will probably just be in addition to the current one.

We have talked about upgrading our wedding bands (That was before we found the crazy good deal on almost EXACTLY what we wanted) but I would never upgrade my e-ring. Aside from the fact that I think it is perfect for me anyway, I feel like this is the ring he chose for me to show his love and if I want a bigger prettier ring in the future, fine! But it wont ever replace my e-ring on my finger. This ring has too much meaning for me to ever replace it. It is a family diamond and the setting is everything he knew I wanted, with some slight modifications for style. But again, even if it weren’t I wouldn’t ever replace it. It just wouldn’t feel right to me.

With all the talk that’s been going on with moissanite here, I’ve been pretty interested in getting myself a ring. I would like to get one with a stone that’s bigger than what’s on my e-ring right now and in a different style, but I wouldn’t replace my e-ring. I would wear it on my right hand instead.

I’d change my setting but I wouldn’t upgrade the stone.

Absolutely, I would, and I fully intend to in the next few years. I love my ring because of all it represents (it was my grandmother’s) but it’s not my dream ring. When I get that ring, grandmother’s is going to be resized to fit my right hand and the center diamond is going to be replaced with my birthstone. I’m terribly sentimental and terrified of losing things, so I don’t think I’d ever just put the ring in the box and leave it in a drawer or whatever–but I want my dream ring, too.
