    @GelaMac:  Congrats on custody!

    If you can afford to upgrade and DH is ok with it, get what you want!  I got a whole new set for 5 years and it is awesome!

    congrats!!!

     

    With my original, the diamond was never the size I wanted and the setting was right in style, but not my thing refinement wise.  That is what started  my string of rings.  But now, I have the diamond I want, and will have the setting made how I want… so it is taking time to get *exactly* what I want, but slowly I will get there.  🙂

    @GelaMac:  Awe what fantastic news!!!

    I still have long term plans to replace my sapphire oval with a diamond oval. I know a lot of people didn’t agree with me when i did a poll a long time ago but i would really like to change my sapphire to a diamond eventually.

    I always wanted round or princess.  I have round now, and it’s a nice size.  However, if I were to or wanted to go bigger, I’d have to go with princess.  I don’t know why, but princess looks good at any size.  I don’t care for huge round stones.

    @GelaMac:  I wish I had a different center stone!  We got a CZ center stone so that I could have my forever Verragio setting- I would love to have a diamond center stone, but who knows when we will be able to do that!  Right now we are concentrating on saving for the wedding!  So I don’t think you are crazy 😉

    If I could put in requests now, after having a princess, I would choose a round as its more sparkly. Sometimes I do wish I had a round but he knew I had wanted a princess cut prior to being engaged so thats what I got and I do love it!

    I wish my stone was a bit bigger and more perfectly square. I really love the cut though

    Sometimes I think my second choice for an e-ring would have been easier for daily wear- round solitaire on a plain band, as opposed to an emerald with side stones, which I have now.  I am forever scratching myself (or FI), snagging tights/sweaters, etc when wearing it.  (And I’m not even wearing it regularly yet.)

    I suggest cocktail rings, and they can be quite reasonably priced (without being costume materials).

    An oval smoky quartz? A round tourmaline? The possibilities are limitless.

    It’s normal to want to try different things too, but the sentiment of the engagement ring is something very, very special in itself 🙂

    Gelamac- it’s probably because it’s something you feel you have some control over. You don’t like it, so you change it. You’ve gone through a hug change in your life and as much of a blessing as having your granddaughter is, this whole debacle had/has to be stressful!

    I would honestly change my whole ring if it wouldn’t break my husband’s heart. Even though we chose it together, he did purchase it himself and it’s a real point of pride for him. It’s not an expensive ring, but that’s because he was supporting me through school and on days when I don’t feel so in love with my ring, I try to remember that sacrifice. He never complained once about the burden that was on him.

    Going forward now,I just don’t see a time when it will ever make sense to upgrade. I’ve asked him for a more detailed band for Christmas to stack with my wedding ring and engagement ring, just to snazz things up a bit. Maybe you could do something like that rather than change the centre stone again?

    I wish I had a whole new ring!  Something low-profile but still blingy.  I’ve learned I just don’t like tall settings, which I didn’t know until having my ering.  I originally considered a few Anniversary-style rings, as my ering but hubby (BF at the time) didn’t like them.  In the end I wish I’d listened to my more practical side.  Hubby even told me he ALMOST bought me a moissy band for our 1 year Anniversary.  I did get something better, though – a puppy!

     

     @GelaMac:  Hey, tastes change, and I do remember you saying you never REALLY loved your upgrade.  BTW, Berricle IS having a good sale right now, if you need a temporary fix Wink

     

    And congrats on gaining custody of your granddaughter!
