    have you considered selling it?  it’s beautiful and i’m sure someone will love it. 

    you can swap out the centre stone for your birthstone or other gemstone and wear it as a rhr.

    In all brutally honesty, I would sell it on and use the money either towards the wedding/honeymoon/something for your home.  Use the money to pay for something that you would be able to remember, does that make sense??

    I personally would use the diamond in your current engagement ring as the new center stone in your rose gold halo engagement ring. The setting you could either sell, keep, or put a gemstone in it to wear on your right hand.

    @BlondeMissMolly:  I agree completely. This is what I would suggest.

    I would either use the original stone in the new setting or put it into a necklace. You can try to sell the original setting or have a gemstone (sapphire, etc) set into it and where it as a RHR

    I would take the stone and use it in the new rose gold setting. Then I’d sell the first setting and use the money toward something else. (both settings are beautiful!)

    @slcall:  I think morganite is beautiful and I considered it for a while, by it won’t last like a diamond or moissanite, so I personally would still use the moissanite you currently have, but I’m also a bit sentimental. If you want to sell the set, you could try idonowidont.com, eBay, or diamond bistro.  

    Edit: or even the classifieds here on weddingbee.

    Why wouldn’t you use the centre stone as the centre stone for your new engagement ring?

    or why wouldn’t you just buy a wedding band that you like and wear either the band or hte engagement ring but not wear them together. Lots of people do that. Would save the money of having to buy a totally new engagement ring..
