Absolutely. I think I’ve said it on here before but my love isn’t limited to a single ring. Currently working on 2 ring projects (long term). I wouldn’t be surprised if I ended up owning 4 or 5 different e-rings by the time I die.

As much as I absolutely love my wedding set (I picked it out), the one thing I wish I did was try on all different styles. For example, I have long skinny fingers, so perhaps I should have tried emerald cut. However, I have always loved round and square, and have never given other cuts a second thought.

I would have gotten a thinner band on my e-ring (I’m planning to get it changed) and I would have given more thought to the fact that a wedding band can’t sit flush next to my emerald cut stone. Maybe a different setting, though I do love my ring!

I was afraid that might happen if I kept looking at other ladies’ rings in the ring forum after we already had ours, but luckily, no. It’s still the only one I love!

Of course, if my tastes ever really changed, maybe we could ask our jeweler to set our diamond in a different band we design. I don’t forsee that happening any time soon if ever!

I love so many rings, but the ring that he picked for me is the ring I love more than any other ring  the sentimental value is more important to me. I would love to have a three-stone emerald cut but I wouldn’t want to replace my ring because she is so beautiful 🙂 I totally understand how you feel though! seeing everyone elses beautiful rings is hard!

I have a family heirloom that’s beautiful, sentimental, and did not cost him/us more than the cost of getting it resized and the prongs rebuilt a bit.  So nope!

Perhaps if you’re still feeling this way in a few years you can get an anniversary ring..

I wish I chose differently. I picked out a pretty diamond quad halo ring. It is a nice ring, but to me now, it doesn’t look like an engagement ring- more like a promise ring. Plus, I realize we could have gotten something or better quality by spending just a bit more. I don’t mean to sound ungrateful, though, I just wished I had thought a little more about it. Unfortunately, since it is a quad ring (with four square diamonds in the center) it wouldn’t be possible to reset it.

Good news is the ring really was not that much for an engagement ring, so we are thinking of replacing it with a moissy ring I keep looking at online. I definitely wouldn’t feel comfortable doing that if the ring hadn’t been affordable. Sometimes I do feel majorly guilty I feel this way… but I will be wearing it the rest of my life.

No, Darling Husband picked out my ring all on his own and it was a complete surprise. I could never replace or upgrade or stop wearing this ring – I feel like I am wearing a symbol. It’s a 1ct Ring Bearer (VVS1, H, super sparkly 🙂 in a plain white gold cathedral setting.

I might have picked a bezel set stone or gotten a more elaborate band.

Nope. I’m happy to say that I wouldn’t change a thing.

I think I would’ve gotten a Ring Bearer instead of a princess. My setting is very delicate and beautiful, so I wouldn’t change that. FH picked it out completely on his own, so I wish I would’ve gone shopping with him to try on different styles.
