Hey there all, Ok so as some of you may know I am shopping rings second hand. I was wondering what are some of the simpliest modifications to make with most rings? For instance changing the prongs? Or maybe adding a halo? Re-sizing (non eterninty or thick bands) I would think are the least in depth changes that could be made. What about having a ring plated? Is ther anything else I am not thinking of?

You can also have the diamond reset to a height of your liking. I originally had my diamond set very low, as I am hard on my hands. However, the diamond sat right up against the basket, which created an X shadow when you looked at it straight on, as well as a cloudy dirt build up between the diamond and the metal. My diamond is VVS1, and let’s just say it’s impeccable clarity was not at all highlighted. So it’s at the jewelers right now being reset! I hope I love it!

oooh good point. That was something I was concerned about was if the setting was too tall. But I wouldn’t want to sacrifice the appearance of the stone.

Adding a guard is an easy way to change the appearance of a ring, but can be very pricey
