    jezzy :  hahhah yea.. she’s the type who loves comparing so I guess she will notice stuff like this. My Fiance just told her it’s an upgraded rock (hence bigger). So we didn’t lie to them or anything. But we also didn’t explicitly mention that it was a cz prior, and not a diamond too. I actually hardly ever wore the cz because it looks too plastic-y aka fake lol so I just wore my promise ring he gave me before which is a pink tourmaline ring from David yurman. I also have a tiffany solitaire which I got for Valentine’s Day Which I wear a lot now instead of my e ring because my e ring is a little too attention grabbing in my area ahhahah and believe me it doesn’t look anything like my e ring but nobody ever questioned it

    Just tell them that the original ring was just a proposal ring and you chose the forever ring together. You can tell the truth without having to mention that the first ring was a CZ.

    magpiebee :  Exactly my suggestion. No real explanation on the ring necessary just say they were shopping for her forever ring and now she has it and her and Fiance picked it out together

    jezzy :  I’ll be getting a placeholder soon. My ring size is a 3.75 and it’s tight now due to pregnancy. Also, I can’t find a ring that looks ANYTHING like my blue sapphire-with a diamond halo within my $10 fake ring budget, so the difference will be pretty significant.

    I plan to tell the truth. “My fat fingers can no longer fit my original set, so I’m wearing a stand in.” Problem solved!
