    No, I'm in love with my engagement ring.

    Maybe, I may want to switch it up.

    Yes, I plan to upgrade.

    My husband has been the driving force for all my upgrades 😅 

    I orgibally had a .25 carat solitaire and I loved it so much. A couple weeks before our wedding my husband surprised me and had my mom’s diamond set in a halo on my ring. I was shocked but it was my dream style! I had a plain and when we got married and for our 1 year anniversary my husband took my rings in for “rhodium” and came back with a brand new diamond wedding band. We decided together on upgrading the halo on my ring with bigger, nicer diamonds for our 3 year anniversary. Last year I chipped my diamond (I almost died. I was heart broken!) so we put a moissanite in my ring. I was happy and would have been happy with that as my forever ring but my husband is very “old school” and needs my ring to be a diamond for his sake. 

    So I work in jewelry now, learning to be a jeweler as an apprentice, and we custom designed my new ring! It’s currently in production. I’m really sentimental and I wouldn’t have ever asked to change my original but it makes my husband happy and I can’t argue with that 🤷🏻‍♀️

    I don’t think I would ever trade in my first engagement ring.. I’m way too sentimental to actually replace the original engagement ring, it’s irreplaceable to me. I’m actually struggling with sending my setting back in to make minor changes (it wasn’t made 100% what we asked for) because it will be different and that makes me sad.

    I think I would rather buy a whole new ring and switch them out, sentimentality doesn’t stop me from wanting to collect jewelery lol!
