First of all welcome…second is where is the pic of this ring girl lol??
I would either replace the stone in my engagement ring or wear it as an alternate engagement ring. I have approximately three rings I wear as engagement rings – my actual ring, a family heirloom, and a stone less ring.
I would keep the ring as it is and wear it for special occasions. I’m not a fan of changing gifted or inherited jewelry, though.
I like your idea of having it set into your original engagement ring. That’s probably what I would do.
I like having options – so I voted for having it as an alternate.
@bugbear: Check with your husband before replacing the diamond he bought you with the heirloom diamon; it might hurt his feelings for you to do that. If not and it fits, then reset it in your current set and have your old diamond reset in a new RHR (or even the heirloom setting if it’s good for a RHR.)
I would totally set the new stone into the existing ring! As long as your hubby doesn’t have an issue with it. I’m not very sentimental about diamonds though, so I’d probably sell the original diamond and put the cash towards something for both of you. Or, reset the smaller diamond into a necklace or something if you want to keep it. I LOVE the idea of putting a gemstone in the new setting for a RHR.
Pics pleeeasssseeee!!! 🙂
I wouldn’t disband a family heirloom. There may be bad feelings behind that.
Hi @bugbear: First & Foremost as this is your DEBUT Post… a BIG Welcome to “the Hive”
As the other Bees have said, when it comes to posts about Jewellery and particularly “comparissons”, it is always best if we have pictures to go by.
Any chance you could give us some ring porn ??
