michellelynn9175 :  I don’t have the diamonds you are looking to see, but I just want to comment to say that I am going the same thing right now with a ring reset and my husband just rolls his eyes and doesn’t want to hear it. Basically like “didint you ‘decide’ like 6 months and 1 million designs ago?”… lol. 

I feel your pain.

I have a 1.39ct diamond with brown and pink undertones set in 14k rose gold. It was an Old European Cut that was recently recut to the Crown Jubilee to maximize it’s beauty.

I don’t have pictures of mine because I don’t have it anymore. But I can say brown diamonds are gorgeous! And I fully intend to replace it someday. So as far as I am concerned, good thinking!

Not a fan, personally. I generally stay away from overly trendy styles and prefer to stick with classic looks. This is true of my wardrobe and given that my engagement ring is the most expensive accessory I will ever own, I would not have been happy with something that isn’t timeless.

To each their own, but when you’re spending thousands of dollars on something you intend to wear for the rest of your life, I’d caution you to take into consideration whether you will still like something like this 30 years from now when it’s no longer “on trend”.  If you are confident that you like it and will always like it, do you, boo!

I think that you are also needing the “new adventure” fix.  You have the personality (as I have come to understand it from your very first posts 2-3 years ago to now), that loves the journey.  It’s not even really as much about finding “the” ring, but the process.

The process is fun, and it’s addicting ask me how I know πŸ™‚

I remember you were at one point saying this ring (the three-stone) had to be right because it was the only one ever.  By saying that I think you feel the tug of the desire (addiction?) to keep searching, keep asking for pics, keep considering several different styles, colors, etc., because is it hard to let go now of all the time and emotion spent doing just that for the three-stone journey.

Allow yourself to admit, you may be a multiple-ring gal, even though you had not thought so before.  Within your particular restraints, get what you love, and several if that’s your desire.

I would agree with you that you should stay with the three-stone and let that be.  Then, you have RHRs to consider and you can switch those around all you want!

I’ve enjoyed reading your journey but worry that you don’t see that you love the journey as much as the final product.
