I did! I fell in love with my band, but my e-ring and band didn’t go well… plus, my original ering was yellow gold and I really wanted to white. So I swapped =)

 

And I’m happy about it, Fiance was on board and didn’t mind either way.

My fiance had the setting changed (i.e. they made it smaller!) when he bought the engagement ring and picked out the diamond. Weirdly enough, they didn’t get it straight the first time- it’s a princess cut diamond, and the night he proposed we both agreed that it was slightly crooked. They fixed it and were really nice about it when we brought it back, but I would say make sure you choose wisely where you get it done! Any nice jewelry store would probably either be able to do it or recommend a jeweler who can (maybe try a local place or ask around in your area; I wouldn’t go to Kay or Zales or big chains like that).

I just went last night and got a new setting. My Fiance took my mom’s advice on what to get, and needless to say, we don’t have the same taste in rings. I told him I’d like to look and get ideas becasue my original just wasn’t me. Definitely look online, and go in knowing what you want. I knew what I was looking for, and once I told the guy he walked off for a couple minutes and came back with the perfect ring on the first try. If you go to the right place they’ll be able to help you.

I did for the exact same reason. I wanted them to sit closer together. I knew it would drive me crazy if they were rocking against each other.

This is my original setting:

And updated setting:

Hubs (then BF) chose my diamond and had it mounted on a temporary band so I could pick out the setting. A month or so after we got engaged my diamond ended up FALLING OUT OF THE TEMPORARY BAND! Yes… one day I looked down and the rock was gone!  I died… but we found it after 2 hours of searching. Anyway our e-pics were scheduled the next day so I had to find a new setting quick. I picked out the new e-band for the pictures. A couple of months later I picked out my wedding band. Here they all are!

Before (the day he proposed)

After the wedding:

I’m totally toying with the idea of changing to a halo setting….I just love them!  I’m torn b/c idk if I will end up regretting it as my solitaire is beautiful and classic.

Fiance couldn’t afford my dream setting, so he ended up getting a plain solitaire instead with the intention that at some point in the future we could look for a new setting together.  I actually am head over heels for the solitaire, so I’m not sure we’ll end up changing it.

Anyways, if you want a change to make for a better fit with your wedding band of choice, and you Fiance is ok with it, I say go for it!
