I don’t have any experience changing rings, but wow, that’s a really unique and beautiful ring! I can see why you would be hesitant to try something new.

Your ring is beautiful and special to you, so I would suggest keeping it…but if you’ve already had to deal with a damaged stone it may not be practical for everyday wear.  I’d suggest getting a ‘replacement’ ring that will hold up to everyday wear and tear (maybe something plain, or something cheap with stones that can be replaced with no hard feelings or breaking the bank, or something more expensive with stones that will last longer or are covered for damage?) and keep your original for special occasions when you want to wear it and don’t think it’ll get hurt.  Like family dinners, date nights, parties, etc.  And you can always wear one or the other as a right hand ring too.

To start off your ring is STUNNING! Now to answer your question… the ring I have now is not the ring my husband asked me to marry him with. My first ring was amazing but it was causing a lot of trouble! Just a week after he asked me to marry him the stone shifted so we took it in the be fix. After that the it was just problem after problem so my Fiance decided to surprise me with a new ring. I LOVE my new (ok its not very new now lol) ring and it goes amazing with my great grandmothers wedding band but I do miss my other ring. I wasn’t able to keep it but if your able to keep yours I would take the time to save up and purchase a ring you love and wear your original ring when your not so hard on your hands.

I hope this helps!

Have you looked at Diamond Nexus Labs?  You could buy a loose stone for cheap (the rings themselves are kind of pricey though).  I know they get a lot of hate on this forum, but I just purchased a loose stone from them and it is beautiful.  The people that hate on ’em have never seen or owned one.  Those that own them love them (search the boards).  No, I don’t work for the company…just letting you know they are an alternative if you are short on funds right now.

I should mention that I can’t see your pic, so maybe I’m totally off the mark…

A friend of mine recently told me about how his wife kept losing stones from her engagement ring (I don’t remeber what syle of ring she has, but I do know they’re diamonds) and the jeweler put some sort of ‘coating’ on the ring to keep them in place?  When he explained it to me, it sounded like clear nail polish being brushed over the top, although I’m positive it isn’t LOL.  Maybe you could bring your original ring to the jeweler and ask about this?  If it works, then you could still wear it from time to time without the hassle of replacing stones?
