If you want more bling you could add a ring enhancer as your wedding band. Then you keep the ring he proposed with but also get something a little flashier.

I’m sorry you’re feeling this way about your ring. I agree with hikingbride. You should look into wraps for your solitaire and diamond wedding bands to add a little more to your ring. I change up my rings all of the time. Good luck!!

I’m in the process of finding two side stones for my setting, perhaps you could add some sides and make it a 3 stone make it something blingier? That way you get to keep it and get something you like.

I’m a sentimental person so while I would update my setting I wouldn’t change my diamond out.

Could you keep the setting and have your fiance pick out a new stone? That way the setting is the original but he gets to give you the size/shape stone he would have picked?


Editing to add: another option would be to get an entirely new ring and keep the one you have as a right hand ring, or necklace, or a keepsake to pass on to future children. I totally understand the sentimental value of it and wanting to keep it exactly as is, but that doesn’t mean you need to look at it every day as your engagement ring if you don’t want to.

bluetrue :  Well…maybe if you go try on some wraps you both might begin to like it better? Seems like just getting a whole new ring isn’t an option so why not try on some enhancers in person and see the difference it could possibly make..I don’t know. Or if getting a new ring or resetting the diamond into a new blinged setting  is an option you should do it,maybe you both will feel better about it.

Could you maybe do one of the two:


1) get a halo added?

2) Get a ring you both love together and he can do a smal reproposal so it can be official

If you’re in a position to exchange it, then that’s my vote.  It sounds like that’s what would make you happy.

Do you genuinely not like the ring, or do you not like ring because of comments from other people? If it’s the Former, then change the ring. 

A 1+ carat diamond isn’t really a standard or a norm you need to adhere by. The demographic of Weddingbee isn’t exactly reflective of the general population. You liked the ring when you first saw it, and your fiancé bought it for you.  The carat of the Stone is by no means an indicator of your fiancé’s love and commitment. Bigger stone doesn’t mean he’s more committed.
