I spent the last year going back and forth over whether or not I wanted to upgrade my ring. My husband and I have been married for over a year, and the ring setting itself does have sentimental meaning to me, but the stone in the center doesn’t. The center stone that I currently have is a .25 diamond and while I like my ring, I have always felt crappy about people’s reactions to how “dainty” or “cute” my ring was and have felt major ring envy over other people’s rings as my friends have gotten engaged. My husband always wanted to upgrade my ring as well because we are more well off than we were when he purchased the ring (during college).
He asked me if I would like to upgrade the center stone as my birthday present this year and I was really excited to do so after looking at all the gorgeous moissy rings on weddingbee. I have no interest in splurging for a larger diamond because to me they look the same and while I want to have a larger stone, I don’t want it badly enough to pay a few thousand for a diamond equivalent.
So today I finally went ahead and ordered a .75 Amora Moissanite ring and now I’m feeling nervous. I know I will like the moissanite because I have ordered a moissanite pendant from Moissaniteco. previously. I’m more worried about if the .75 will look too big compared to what I’ve gotten used to. I don’t want people to look at my ring and have it be a huge noticeable difference, because I don’t want people to judge me for my decision to upgrade the stone. I won’t be posting the ring on facebook, or showing it off, it was more to just make me feel comfortable with the piece of jewellery that I wear every day.
I honestly have no idea what the point of this post was, other than to get my feelings out of my head and wonder if anyone else has upgraded their stone and how they felt afterwards? Did anyone feel this way and did you end up getting used to the new stone?
Thanks for reading and letting me get this off my chest 🙂
