This is a pretty common issue actually.  My suggestion is just to talk to your Fiance. As for wedding bands matching, you shouldn’t have a problem–there are thousands of websites and if you want a custom made ring, check out etsy alchemy request. You’ll probably get some negative replies from a lot of bees for not completely loving the ring.  To be honest, I’m not totally content with my ring but my fiance plans to “upgrade” my cz to another gemstone other than diamond (my own ethical rationality).

I think if the two of you are on the same page about changing the ring and you’d both be happy about the decision then you should do it and don’t worry about what anyone else says.  If anything it would reflect really postively on him and you that you were able to reach a decision you’re both happy with!

Make sure you share pics either way – both rings sound so pretty!

I feel like I read a post a day about someone not liking their ring, so you’re not the only one. Just talk to him about it and go to a jewelers together one day. Maybe you’ll find the ring of your dreams, maybe you’ll realize that you love the ring you have now more than you realize.

Definately not alone. My ring is actually a cz sterling silver ring from walmart. It’s what we could afford at the time. We talked bout it and since we know a jewelry maker we decided to have my e-ring custom made along with my wedding band.

As long as you talk to him I’m sure you two can come up with something.

I think it doesn’t matter much what any of us think. If you can talk over it with your FH and both agree on something you’re comfortable with, then that sounds like a solution to me.

About your worry with selling your current ring back to the jeweler, you’re right. You will not get what he paid for it. The jeweler will buy it back at a lower rate (and then resell at a price between the original cost and the cost they paid you). So if investing more money into it is a problem, then you might want to keep that in mind.
