I think an upgrade is not a bad idea especially when you can get a diamond that you’ve always wanted! You can always keep this ring. I think at the end of the day, you should try some rings you’re interested in and see if you actually like it enough to upgrade the ring.

egl29 :  I think it’s gorgeous.  What kind of band is that?  i think your band is too rough next to the ering depending on what type of metal it is.

Could you wear it as a RHR? I wear my great-grandma’s diamond as a RHR. It is sentimental and I like to wear it.

Switch this set to your right hand and then wear your new 🙂 No shame in wanting something new/different. I know my tastes have personally changed from 6 years ago and I would likely pick something different today than what I did pick back when we were looking.

I think you should upgrade to what you want, and have this one refurbished, then keep it safe and wear it when you want.  Just cause you upgrade doesn’t mean you can’t still wear this one.  And wearing it less will keep it safer, so you can have it forever.

egl29 :  

I don’t personally believe in ‘upgrades’ , the rign he proposed with is , to me , the only engagement ring, and it sounds  as if you feel the  same. Can it  be refurbished and the missing stone replaced?

Or a whole new ring  that you alternate with it ( not replacing or ‘upgrading’ , just another nice ring.) Or  a slim sparkly eternity band to wear  with it .

I’d be way too sentimental to upgrade. No matter how pretty the new ring would be, it wouldn’t be the one he proposed with. But then again that’s just me, and if your less sentimental and don’t get too hung up on things like that an upgrade might be just right for you 🙂

You can still be sentimental about your engagement ring and get a new ring.  I’d call it an anniversary ring and be done with it.  Think of it as representing the next chapter in your marriage.

 egl29 :  is it silver, or white gold? If it’s gold I’d just have the scratches polished out and get an antiqued silver wedding band, for the same look as the one you have, but without causing further damage to your e-ring because silver is soft. If it’s silver however you may want to upgrade, because, like I said, silver is soft, so Itty bitty things made of silver, like setting prongs, wear down over time.

It’s your call.  I would personally never upgrade my ering because it’s the one Darling Husband picked out specially for me.  It’s a mark of where we were and the love and commitment he was making when he picked it out.  I don’t need a bigger or fancier ring to replace that!
