    I think it’s fine, as long as your future fiance is cool with it.

    why can’t you sell your dress?

    i’m personally not very sentimental so i think its perfectly fine to save it for another use.  your future fiance might think otherwise tho…

    Ehh I would keep it if its just a loose stone. Def not the whole ring though. Give it to your mom for safe keeping and then you can legit tell a new guy “it’s been in the family for years” 😉

    If your future FI is ok with it, sure why not 🙂  You could make it into a pendant as another option.

    Throw it in the bank, a safe deposit box.  I would definitely not use it for a future engagement personally.

    oh my, i would never be able to use a diamond from one engagement to start another! maybe its just me, but i am totally sentimental about these kind of things. i cant tell you what to do – if you and future FI are okay with it, then who am i to say otherwise?  but i cant imagine any guy being okay with that.  i would think the guy proposing wants you to wear a ring HE got you, not your ex!

    Whatever you do, it’ll be ok.

    i had to ask my hubby his opinion and all he said was “isn’t the guy supposed to get the ring?”
