    ladyvictoria:  I’m against upgrading the engagement ring, although I’m less attached to my wedding band. I LOVE it, but I picked it out where I didn’t choose the engagement ring (and he still nailed it!) The engagement ring, to me, represents a moment in time – when we got engaged. We’ll never be engaged again and when I look at it I remember my husband’s face as he proposed and I love that feeling. The wedding band represents our marriage, but not necessarily our wedding in my view. Our marriage will naturally change over time, so if I were to lose the wedding band I would replace it and not be as sad as if I were to lose my engagement ring.

    Thank you so much!!! I absolutely love my ring and I love sharing complements with my fiance – I know he worked really hard picking out the stone/s and designing the ring…I am sure it makes him feel good to hear that someone besides me thinks it’s pretty! 🙂

    I would never upgrade my ring set. My husband thoughtfully picked it out and I love it! I’m super sentimental though. I still where the ring he got me for our 1 year dating anniversary haha. We’ve been together for 8.5 years.

    I love my engagement ring! I can’t stop staring at it even 9 months after my Fiance proposed to me. As of now, we don’t plan to change or upgrade it at any point…but I never say never! 😉

    I went with a timeless platinum solitaire. But settings can become fairly dated looking and if I had gone with something trendier, I can see eventually deciding to update. Personally, I am most attached to the stone, and would not consider changing that.

    ladyvictoria:  I plan on keeping my set and maybe eventually adding another band.  You know for the big anniversaries (25 yrs etc…).  I love my set and hope to take really good care of it!

    ladyvictoria:  I don’t believe in upgrading my engagement ring. It is very sentimental, and if I want something bigger I have a whole other hand for it. I love my little diamond (by weddingbee standards, it’s .31 ct) and beyond it being a beautiful gift from Darling Husband, it symbolizes a promise to take care of each other. I dont find issue with adding anniversary bands though

    i might upgrade just the setting to a better version of my double halo down the road. I like chunkier settings… the stone is absolutely forever though. my FI’s mom passed away when he was 13 and he put her stone in a new setting. and i know it means the world to him, and it means a lot to me too. and i do love my ring…

    I am in the process of a downgrade. I decided I really like smaller rings.

    I don’t have any plans to upgrade as I love my ring and the meaning and miles it has behind it (it was well travelled as he proposed on a vacation) but wouldn’t be opposed to it if Fiance wanted to buy me a bigger diamond on a milestone anniversary – but even then, I would really have to think about it!

    Here’s my forever set 🙂

    Going smaller still counts as changing it, so you don’t score a point.  😉 lol
