I just got an upgrade for our 15 year anniversary!  I got a Moissy 16 years ago with the intention of replacing it with a diamond.  I loved it so much, we never did.  When it came time to upgrade, I got another Moissy with a custom anniversary band.  2ct moissanite w/ .7ct band!

My first ring is the double halo set round (1.25ct center; G/SI2). I absolutely LOVED it when I got it way back when. But then the halo became the “in” thing and it seemed like everywhere I turned, my “unique” ring was looking more like everyone else’s. 

 

 In December, my husband and I upgraded to a completely new set. This one doesn’t have the halo. It’s a 1.6ct pear center (E/SI1) in a platinum infinity style band with matching fitted ring.

I upgraded both my setting and my stone. The original was custom designed but I never really liked the way it turned out. When we pulled the original stone out of the setting and got it appraised we found out we paid double what it’s actual value was therefore we opted to redo the whole thing. 1st photo is the original ring. Second photo is the upgrade.

I almost never wore my original e-ring because the setting was very high and so impractical. 

Got my new setting in January and am so happy with it! I’ve spewed it across these boards, but here it is again…

I created an account just to share on this thread, but for some reason, I was getting log in errors. Anyway, I am resurrecting this thread to share my upgrade. Thanks to these boards I found out about moissanite. I love sparkly things but didn’t want to spend my retirement or kids’ college funds on a diamond. A moissanite fit me perfectly.  

I got my original engagement ring (1/4 ct solitaire)for my 16th birthday, of course giving my parents a small heart attack. I was married at 19, and we just celebrated our 20th anniversary. 

I chose a F1 H&A round halo setting, and I got a diamond band to represent each of our kids. I still like yellow gold and have many pieces of jewelry set in it,  but for a long time I have been eye balling white gold wedding sets. It has been fun looking at all of the different styles on these boards.

Congrats! That rock is beautiful!

I just got my upgrade yesterday. We’ve been engaged almost 3 years and tying the knot in October. ☺
