    I guess I’d just figure that even if the ring looked like the original, it still wouldn’t BE the original, so I’d just get whatever I loved.  If you found the original ring a bit uncomfortable, this is your chance to change it up. If you want to keep some elements of your old ring, maybe you could pick the same style and just scale it down in size.

    I honestly think your original ring is stunning, but if I were you and it wasn’t exactly what I wanted, I’d take the opportunity to buy one I loved. Especially as you’ll never be able to get back the sentimentality of the original ring that he proposed with so my guess is that if you get an exact replica of your ring, you’ll love it even less than before because not only it is one you really like, but it’s also not the one he proposed with anymore so… get the new one that you really want!

    I would buy the one I would love to wear; the second ring. Besides what if your first ring turns up?

    You’re original ring is beautiful- I’m sorry it was lost 🙁 That being said, whatever you get now isn’t the original so you can try something new if theres something else you’d like more. If your original ring was your favorite design, go with that though!

    I would get the one I loved if it didn’t hurt FI’s feelings. Will the insurance company also let you get a wedding band if both rings combined don’t cost more than the original e-ring? A simpler setting means more $$ left for the wedding band and maybe even a stone with higher specs.

    so sorry to hear that your original ring was lost. It’s beautiful… and had you not lost it and had simply posted, ‘is this ring too big? should I change it? ‘ I would have said, ‘no way, sister. it’s perfect as is’ 🙂

    I think given this situation, I would just pick a new ring that I loved; it wouldn’t matter to me if it was exactly the same as my first one…. the sentiment behind the ring and the commitment you share is what is important, not the shape or style of the ring.

    Both rings are simply gorgeous! If the second style is what you are leaning toward then why not go for it. Maybe he could re-propose with the new ring? Or put it on your finger  and say “reset”.

    I would get the same one as before! It’s stunning and your FI picked it out which is extra special! 🙂

    sunnierdaysahead2 :  take the opportunity to do what you want.. maybe compromise and get the setting and get a diamond that was similar to you’re original one??? I think you’re original sized diamond would look great on that tacori setting

    What about looking for a ring that is a duplicate in style to your original ring, but a size that you are more comfortable with?

    Personally if I lost my ring I would want the same one. I just can’t think of any design I like more.

    But I can understand that a replica would still not be the ring you had and you also wanted something smaller so maybe it could be your chance to get a different style.
