The first ring my husband got me for our engagement was too big and it had a weird design so you couldn’t make a band with it. We changed it to a simple plain band and with the three past, present future stones from the old one. Then two years later I added diamonds to the sides to make it look a little flashy and bought an eternity band. Now after 2 years I changed it completely making the side stones as ear rings and the middle to make my ring. Some poeple think its bad luck or you shouldn’t change your engagement ring. What is your opinion on that?

I think an engagement is just a piece of jewelry and you should change it as many times as you want. The goal is to have a piece of jewelry that you can feel happy and proud of wearing everyday.

@VAwife: Agreed. It’s just a material thing. It doesn’t hold supernatural powers 😉

I don’t know if it is bad luck, but I know that it is highly unlikely that I will ever change mine. I am somewhat sentimental about it, but Mr. LK is very sentimentally attached to it. Without me even saying something, Mr. LK made it clear that my ring is the only ring. Period.

Change it as many times as you wish! As long as your husband is on board and you can afford to make the changes then go for it!

While you are entitled to change your ring as many times as you like, to be 100% honest it is something I think makes you look materialistic and a bit flighty to change numerous times. But what I think shouldn’t matter. It’s your life, your ring, your relationship and any judgements a stranger like me makes on the internet should not matter or change how you live your life.

You wear it every day; you should love it. If both you and your Darling Husband are ok with all these changes then I say go ahead!

When I first got engaged I was so excited I didn’t care what the ring looked like I just wanted a ring. Now a year later I am still fine tuning it trying to find exactly what I want. I.e a different band and diamond. My Fiance just wants me to be happy but I do feel a little shame when people ask me about it. I just try to remember that as long as he and I are okay thats all that matters.

Personally, I believe that an e-ring is a gift from him to me, that he spent time and effort picking out, thus being invaluable to me. I would never change my e-ring… but that’s just me!

I’m about to change mine for the second time! We bought a ‘starter’ setting that I knew wasn’t permanent, then I upgraded to a much flashier style and after year wearing it I realize it’s just too big for me. So I’m downsizing the style but upgrading the metal to platinum and getting a new matching wedding band too.
My only regret is the $ I am wasting in the process. I think as long as you wear a ring showing you are married it doesn’t matter how old or new it is. It’s just jewelry at the end of the day. And honestly not everyone knows what they want from trying a few rings on for two seconds. For me it is a lot harder since my finger is a size 3 so it’s really hard to tell what would look good and be comfortable!

No one can answer that question for you. Only you and your husband can. For each couple it will be different. If your husband is okay with it and you can afford it change it every month, once a year or maybe only change it a few times. It is totally up to you two so don’t let anyone else ruin your fun! 🙂 Gorgeous ring, btw.
