My ring is sentimental and I would never give it up just to get a new one that I like more. That being said, as it is a family ring, I do plan to give it to my son when that time comes for him. I don’t know if I will replace it or just wear a band, but thats a decision for years from now.

Right now, I cannot imagine me wanting any other kind of ring.  But just to be clear, do I want the 6 carat emerald? yes, do I want the radient? yes do I want the ascher and the cushion and the pear? HELL yes I want them ALL!  and I will have them all in one form or another 🙂  But I’ll leave my ering alone for now.  I designed it, and it amazes me every day.

I have multiple “e-rings”, and plan on adding a few more. I’m a one man woman, but he knew before proposing I wanted a collection of rings eventually. 🙂 That way I can choose whichever suits my mood!

I have several rings, but only one that my husband purchased for me. I wear them all with my wedding band that is never getting replaced. I’m sentimental about the wedding band but not about the engagement ring – we picked my engagement ring together, but I had really wanted a halo setting and he hated them. I bought myself one as a wedding gift 2 years to the day after we got engaged.

I think “to each their own” and don’t mind either way (plus, some people just can’t afford it in their stage of life and there’s nothing wrong with that). My Fiance wanted to buy me a “forever” ring so that’s what we did. I always imagined my e ring to be either a diamond or sapphire, so I love my sapphire, but I also do love diamonds and would love a big diamond ring one day. I will probably get one for myself or for an anniversary or something as a RHR. I don’t think I would ever change my e ring

My ring is not necessarily a forever ring. It was very cheap for an engagement ring. Personally I see my ring as separate from my relationship. Like all of my jewelry and clothes it says something about me to have a ring on that finger, but it is really just an accessory to me.

Just wanted to say that silver doesn’t ‘not last ‘ I have a lot of silver jewellery   – some rings are Victorian, on or two even Georgian.  That’s a long time to last .

We just changed my ring in honor of our upcoming 5th anniversary.  Before that, I played around with good CZs.

Way back when dh bought my original ering, diamonds were pricier than they are today & he overpaid by comparison.

Now I’m rocking a 3.10 ctw round solitaire moissy in rose gold over sterling silver.  I plan to evenrually replace the setting to solid rose or white gold.  Maybe even a semi mount with some side stones.

Dh is totally on board.  He was really impressed with moissy the first time we saw it.

I am beyond attached to my ring because of how much it reminds me of Fiance, his proposal, and even the 7+ years that led up to the proposal. It’s to the point where I can’t even imagine pairing a wedding band with it because im afraid it’ll be less special (I’m even comtemplating asking Fiance to choose one for me as a surprise when the day comes, just so that it’s as tied to him as possible). I know it may seem silly, but it is what it is and I never want an upgrade/switcheroo. 

I dont really care what other people do though. It’s their finger, not mine. If this “replace every few years” thing works for your friend, then more power to her!

I don’t think that is an odd sentiment at all. My Fiance and I went traditional and get a medium priced ering form a local jeweler but I absolutely considered doing this.

I dont have a ring yet, havent even picked it out. But mine will most likely be a a forever ring. Unless something happens to it or it bothers my fingers it will be forever. I may add an anniversary band at some point. Who knows. But I love looking at a womans ring and having an idea on when she got married. I love looking for any signs of a well lived life on it as well. A scratch or scuff on a plain band has a story to go with it. And to me thats way cooler then being trendy.

My husband custom designed my ring so no, I could never imagine changing it. He would be incredibly hurt and I absolutely love my ring. It’s the ring we got engaged with. That being said I am all good with getting extra jewellery over the years, but no one is touching this ring <3

My ring is definitely my forever ring. As is my wedding band (perhaps even more so). No it isn’t big, yes I could probably find one I like more, but I love it because it IS my engagement ring. Any other ring would just be a ring, which I may as well wear on another finger whilst also wearing my ering. I’m sentimental, but if I wasn’t then I’m still not sure if i’d ever change it as I wouldn’t see the sentimental side of wearing and ering and thus not have the need to get another and call it an ering. If that makes any sense.

I love my set and rarely take it off now that I’m married. I’d like to get some bling with pink diamonds some day, but probably a RHR or maybe a necklace. I’m too attached to my rings to give it up. As far as my rings being stolen? My rings are pretty tight so they’d have to be off already or the person stealing them would probably have to cut off my finger. HA!

dalia88:  hmmm… that is an interesting way to look at things. i am not sure how i personally would feel about that. but if it works for her then go for it. I guess it works better if you’re not a person who puts a lot of sentimental value on the ring itself. 

what about the ring in all her wedding pictures? has she thought about that?
