Depending on your ring you will have to get a new head to accomodate the round, but if your ring is a little less simple you may need a whole new setting,

@LillyS:  From what I’ve seen, most jewelers won’t let u swap out your stone unless youre spending twice the amount of your original stone (that’s typically how the upgrade program works). If they don’t have an upgrade program, they might “buy back” your stone, but they will only give you a fraction of what you paid. I have a radiant cut stone and had shape regret early on and this is what happened when I tried to trade it for another shape. If you get your emerald pressure steamed at a jeweler it’ll look brand new again.

@october22:  Agreed. Your best bet is to try to sell your Emerald cut on diamondbistro.com or through ebay. Then go to an online website like jamesallen.com to buy a round. You will get more bang for your buck buying a round online than in a store. A word of warning though– rounds are generally the most expensive cut.

What is the size of your Emerald Cut?

@LillyS:  i had the exact same issue and traded my emerald cut in. As beautiful as they are, they just dont sparkle enough for me.. I got told i would have to change the claws on the ring if changing to another stone, especially round stones as the angle pf the claws are different :- in the end i opeted for a whole new setting.. Hope you get it sorted xx

@LillyS:  It depends.  Some places let you trade in for what you want and pay the difference, but some places make you double your trade in.

The jeweler I work with lets me upgrade and we just pay the difference.  🙂
