I kinda want a bigger diamond in my halo ring too. And I just got engaged a month ago…AND I picked my own ring!  Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s possible. I think the way it’s designed only allows for a certain size and no larger. And I’m in love with my setting.

Don’t feel bad 🙂 I think my Fiance would be OK with it. He’d give me the side eye at first, but he just wants to make me happy. I’m sure yours does too.

@alyssa.christine1:  Thanks! I saw your ring pics…I will have two bands as well! Actually it’s more like a wrap or insert b/c the two bands are connected in the back. Thinking of getting them separated though in case I want to wear just one band.

I had a look at your ring pic, I dont think it will look nice with a bigger diamond, also you are very young arnt you? Every one will just think it is fake.

I upgraded soon after my wedding so i dont think it is wrong, my new diamond was more than double the size of my old one and I had to have the prongs replaced and reset, but it was not expensive $240, however that was because mine was not a halo.

@alyssa.christine1:  Just want to say one thing. 

A diamond in no way should be considered an investment. Even though diamond rings will appraise for well over the purchase price, that does not mean you can expect to ever sell your ring (or diamond) for that.

If your husband makes good money, that’s fantastic! He should be maxing out contributions to an IRA and his 401(k) (especially if his company matches it). 

Getting a bigger diamond just because your husband “makes good money” is not the wisest use of your funds.

Do you have a rainy day fund? How long could you live off your savings if the worst happens and your DH loses his job? You should make sure those things are in place before laying out a few grand on a larger diamond.

I know instant gratification is great and it’s not a problem that you want a larger stone, just make sure you are being financially responsible, rational, and mature about the whole thing.

Why is the title of this thread “oh my husband is going to kill me” and you ask us to give you a reason to tell him you “need” it, if he’s well off and doesn’t give a flying eff if you get a bigger ring?

Get your story straight.

There’s no good reason for what you’re trying to do right now.  That’s not bullying or name calling or whatever… that’s the cold, hard truth.  Take it or leave it.
