    I personally think you can do whatever you want.  (Not much help there was that?) 

    My mom still wears her original set with her new anniversary ring for 30 years.  They don’t match at all, but she said she can’t imagine not wearing the orignial one after all these years. 

    The beauty of it is that you have options and can wear it all the time, sometimes or never. 🙂

    I personally love the mis matched thing, it’s very in right now. Lots of girls are mixing metals. Beautiful set! I don’t think anything could make that look bad!

    You could always wear it on your right hand

    I think it looks fine with your new ring. If you really want to wear it you should wear it. Like @FutureMrsBdub said, mis matched rings are totally in.

    I like the idea of wearing either the band or set on your right hand, or you could get the metal and stones custom made into a pendant to wear every day. I can’t tell how it looks with your new set well enough from the pictures to have an opinion on that.

    If it were me, I would continue to wear the old wedding band with the new rings because that’s the ring you used in your wedding ceremony so it is your actual wedding ring and nothing can ever change that fact.  However, just to warn you, I know that my opinion on this is not a very popular one so you might want to keep that in mind. lol  My own mother does not wear her original wedding band OR engagement ring, and neither do a lot of other people I know.  They upgraded their rings to something better or started wearing anniversary rings instead.  I guess the question you need to ask yourself and your husband is how important it is for you to wear the ring that was actually used in your ceremony.  My husband has made it clear that he would not like if it I switched out either of my rings, but he’s a very sentimental man and that’s one of the things I love about him.

    By the way, since you mentioned that your ring doesn’t sparkle anymore, I was just wondering if you ever had it professionally cleaned?  I honestly don’t have my rings cleaned as often as I probably should, but whenever I do, the transformation is amazing!  They sparkle just like new!
