I think your ring is gorgeous as-is.

I think everything your feeling is pretty normal as I went through similar emotions during my reset. I bet you will love the new look and finding wedding band hunting easier is a sure bet. A year later I still love my reset and it feels like it was always my engagement ring, much more than the first setting. Props to your Fiance for being do supportive and understanding on finding your perfect ring!

As far as I’m concerned, though I do believe the engagement ring and the wedding band should look together, I would never change my ering with any other ring in the world. I live in Italy and here we think the wedding band is a symbol rather than a piece of jewelry. Most brides who think their rings don’t make a nice match simply wear their ering on their right hand.

It seems to me that in America you have a different view of wedding/engagement rings, but I’m not judging you, just noticing how big and varied the world is. Do what you think is best for you, because you’ll have to wear your rings daily for the rest of your life, so you should feel 100% happy and comfortable with them.

I have had 2 upgrades and 1 reset in the 3 years we have been married. So me might say that I am spoiled or materiaistic but it has been a evolution to find out what I want. 

I am so glad you got your reset and are loving it. Do you think you will upgrade or reset after this?

If both you and your fiance are totally fine with a reset/upgrade I don’t think there is anything wrong with it.  I have had a few upgrades and a reset in the years that I have been married after my orignal ering was stolen.  My hubby doesn’t mind as long as I am happy and have a ring on my finger! 

Can’t wait to see your ring when you get it back!

I think you have to be happy with your ring and from you’ve said, you Fiance is fine with it. Your tears when taking in your original ERing tells of the struggle you had in your decision.

You thought this through and it’s the right thing for both you and your Fiance. I think this is something to celebrate!

Thanks for sharing your story!  I have not reset my original diamond from my original set because I still have that attachment to it.  Even though I no longer wear it and actually don’t love how it looks, lol.  So I get feeling a bit sad, but I think you will love your new set!  And your Fiance can reprose and make it special for you.  I feel just as attached to my upgrade now, and it means just as much to my DH as it does to me.  🙂
