What type of ring did you get and what type of ring do you want now? (pics are helpful) . Perhaps you could get a RHR ? or make some adjustments to the ring you already have ?

Everyone has different opinions on the subject, but personally I think it’s silly to wear a ring you don’t like simply for sentiment. Have your original diamond set into a more intricate setting if that’s your taste! It’s no big deal and you should be happy when you look down and see your ring.

Have you thought about setting the diamond into a new setting now, then upgrading the diamond later so it isn’t to much at one time? 🙂

Take a look at this site:

http://www.diamondzonejewelry.com/jewelry-collection/diamond-rings/settings-semi-mounts.html

They have a lot of inexpensive mounts in intricate/floral/engraving styles. Any jeweler could pop the diamond out of your current setting and into one of those and it shouldn’t be too expensive. In my opinion, the right setting can make a world of difference. And I agree with Mrs.Estep – you can always upgrade the diamond at a later date too if finances are a concern. Or go with a simulant. : ) That way you could keep your original e-ring as is but have a new fancy too.

I don’t think it’s horrible to switch rings but you could also think about getting an intricate wedding band that is more your style.  With a simple engagement ring like you have, you could go a number of different directions with the wedding band and have it look awesome.

consider having a solitaire enhancer as your wedding band!  that way you could keep your current e-ring and not risk upsetting your Fiance, but get a more detailed setting to add on.  I have a yellow gold solitaire as well, and for my wedding band I am adding an enhancer from samuels (which of course they don’t have online.. 🙁 ) that has tiny diamonds and pear sapphires.  Just go look around 🙂

No, it is not bad at all.  Just tell him.  He can handle it.

@sherryberry: I think your diamond would look gorgeous in a setting like that!

P.S

This bee has a vintage style engagement ring & band with a 1/3 carat round diamond in the center. (Its in a post I made for people to post 1/3 1/4th & 1/5th carat rings.) So I checked to make sure of the carat weight. Her diamond doesn’t look lost at all!

Anyways it reminded me of the setting you posted & her rings are one of my FAVORITE on the bee:
