Hi everyone! Here’s the situation: my mom gave me her original “starter” engagement ring and wedding band (she upgraded a few years ago.) The .25ct marquise is very nice in terms of color and clarity and just the way it looks and the piece obviously holds sentimental value, which I love. However, I would not exactly say that the ring is my style….at all. My mom is okay with us revamping it or even trading it in, but I do not want to trade it so I am looking for ways to redesign it instead.
It looks very similar to this with a plain gold wedding band of equal width:
I had no idea I was getting the ring and have been leaning heavily towards the trendy and nontraditional styles and even considered gemstone as opposed to diamonds. I am wondering if you have any suggestions on how to style this marquise to make it look more modern. I am open to any and all suggestions and tips, as I really don’t know where to begin, and if you have any pictures that would be great!
