I’ve been married for a year and a half now, and I’ve already had to send my rings away to be fixed. (Insert tears) What I mean is, originally we had a custom band made (like a wrap/guard) and it began cutting my finger, rubbing and causing a less than attractive callus. Since I was not about to let that continue to happen, we met with our jeweler again, and collectively we came up with the agreement to re-make my bands.
I was very adamant that, he ( the jeweler) use as much of my original ring as possible, as the band is very special, because ” That was the ring my husband gave me, on the day he became my husband.” Y’know? All in all – He’s going to be shaping down my bands ( previously, my bands were made to be the same height as my Engagement Ring, they will not be that high anymore, they will be lower, to avoid covering up the diamond side accents on my ring.) and adding more diamonds, as a semi-eternity band ( on both sides on my E-ring) and will be soldering them together. ( Ok.. this part I like)
Anyways – the point of all of this is… Has anyone had to have their ring re-made? Am I just being a cheesy cheese ball about this? and PART B- Did anyone get a replacement ring in the mean time? How do you just GO from wearing rings to not? — I feel like people are gonna start thinking there is trouble in my personal life LOL, but I’ve also been told that getting another band is “Bad Luck” are these people just jerks or what?
and heck… I love ring porn, so even if you don’t have a similiar experience, or a relatable experience.. go on and post your rings!!! Just because I don’t have mine at the moment, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t flaunt yours!! xo

@Mrs.Ouellette: I didnt but my mom had hers redone in the 90’s. She had the style changed from a classic delicate tiffany setting to a very wide yellow gold band. She never wears it now that it is 2014! It just looks outdated, so she is planning on having it reset to her original 🙂 Shes been married 36 years. So I do not think it is bad luck at all. Just a silly impulse change that she now regrets.
It sounds like your upset for the right reasons and you are having it redone for the right reasons. You certainly can not wear something that is hurting you! I am sure it will turn out beautiful and comfy! You def need to post pics of it when you get it back.
Just for fun I thought I’d add a picture of my ring, my moms “new style ring” and my grandmas ring. My mom orginally had the same setting as my grandma- you can tell they have the same stone cuts.

Beautiful!! I love all of the rings in the picture!! – Also, what a super cool idea to take a picture of all 3 rings, I love that!!
I relate to your mother as well, I thought long and hard about what I wanted to do with my rings, I didn’t want something that could be outdated quickly, or that was perhaps just a “phase” or a “style” – In the end I just went with a timeless straight band to be added ( How can that go out of style, right?)
I appreciate the pep talk!

I had problems with the prongs on my original engagement ring & even after multuliple repairs they were still cutting me to the point of bleeding so we exchanged it for an entirely new ring keeping the original center stone. I got a little over zealous when picking my new set & got a channel set e-ring, wedding band & anniversary band. Over the years the new set has caused me so many problems with skin irritation & dermatits. (I’ve tried absolutely Every remedy). So, long story short I’m having my ring completely remade reusing the same center diamond again into something much more simple. Hopefully 3rd times a charm! While my ring is being remade I’ll just wear a stand in band or one of my stacking rings.
