I don’t mind honestly!! I plan on keeping my ring forever, and not upgrading it again, but I also at the same time wear some family rings/heirlooms as well.

My e-ring will forever be my e-ring.  Now I wouldn’t be opposed to getting a fancy right hand ring once H and I hit a big year mark, like 25 years.  But I couldn’t imagine going into it with the thought that in X years I am going to upgrade to something better/bigger.

i have not even gotten my first ring yet…lol but I’m pretty sure I will want to upgrade after a few years. I have talked about it with my bf and he says as long as I wait 5 years I can pick whever ring I want at that time. He knows I like very unique things, that tend to be expensive so I rather have something cheap for now, and then get my dream ring in a few years whne we are able to pay for in in cash.

My Fiance sweetly bought me the ring I wanted even though he would have preferred a traditional tiffany style 6 prong solitaire; to him, that is classic. It’s what the women in his family wear. 

So, I have my sparkly pave cushion cut with the sentimental attachment and, one day, when we’re more established in our careers, he wants to get me that sizable round brilliant solitaire. I’m good with that. 

Also, I love rings and he knows I have a soft spot for step cuts… we both foresee an emerald/asscher cut RHR in my future as well.

dalia88:  I would like to change my setting someday as it’s not really my style. I’ll keep my solitaire for sure but would prefer a daintier, simpler setting. I think my DH would not be so understanding right now so maybe around our 10 year mark or so.

I’ve only been married 2 years and I’ve changed my ring a few times. However, they have been 14k-18k white gold, diamonds, moissanite, and amora gem. Even though I like changing my rings, I still prefer to have solid gold, and a stone that could last forever if I wanted it to. And for some reason my skin will tarnish silver within a month or so of continuous wear. I do understand her point though and if that works for her, then that’s a great way to save money.

Nope. Even the jeweler commented on my ring, saying “Ha, your starter ring is 2 carats?”

Everyone is different, my diamond will ‘grow’ like our marriage. I plan on having at least a 3.5-4 carat center. My husband is aware of this, knew before we were married and is on board. Again, each marriage/relationship is different. Life is not about things, but jewelry makes me so incredibly happy. I also have my grandmothers rings and anniversary bands and my Aunt who has never married also collects diamonds/jewelry—it’s somewhere in my blood I’m sure. 

I, personally, woudln’t upgrade with CZ or silver just due to wear and tear, not due to price or  because CZ is “cheap”. A well cut (ie-Winks CZ) CZ will definitely outsparkle a poorly cut/lower quality diamond. I just would be replacing it regularly!

I’ve changed my ering regularly since my original one broke. I couldn’t get the same attachment to anything else so I’ve been chopping and changing. I do think though that of all the rings I own my sapphire is my favourite. so I wear that pretty much every single day

Sigh, I know this is a touchy subject. I hope to upgrade my ring later. I think my Fiance got screwed over when he got my ring currently. I’ve lost three diamonds out of it, and broke the metal but barely doing anything. Also, we cannot find a wedding band to match with it. The one that did match was discountinued without our knowledge. I know it’s petty, but I really want a wedding band.

I plan to keep mine for probably about 5 years, then upgrade. I’m not selling it though, I plan to keep it. I really want to get a moissy next. If I would have known about them before, I would have told the fi!

I am on my 4th set. My first e-ring was a .25 diamond solitaire and we added a halo to it 5 years later. We bought what we could afford when we were younger and upgraded on major anniversaries as our salaries grew.  We have been married forever. I still have the original ring which I plan to keep. We picked out the original ring together and we didn’t buy it with the intention of replacing it – I guess it just evolved.

I will never, ever, ever change my ring.  That’s the ring Fiance picked for me, that’s the ring he chose to give me, and it’s the ring I chose to accept when he proposed.  

My ring has been out for the last 2 days getting rhodium dipped and I cannot wait to pick it up tomorrow.  I’ve been wearing a plan white gold band while it’s out and it’s annying.. It isn’t THE ring.

My e-ring is special. If I change it up every few years and get a new ring, it’s no longer a special ring, it’s just a ring that I’m wearing. No different than any RHR I get. So for me, I won’t ever change my ring. It’s my forever ring.

Totally doing what your friend is doing. Every year on our anniversary he is going to get me a new ring in the $100-$200 range that way I can always have options because my style changes by the day basically. Lol And I like that if we have daughters some day they can both have some of my rings. I will probably have one nice band though that I keep forever. I am currently thinking the Cartier Love ring in Rose gold.
