First of all I don’t think it is possible. Stones like that are usually prong set. If they are prong set, there is no way to add prongs to a smooth engagement ring band like you currently have. If you have them added as pave, they will not be secure enough.

Second of all, I think it would be cost prohibitive. Even if you could find a jeweler to do it, it would cost more than the diamonds are probably worth. 

 

I would look for a diamond mounting for my engagement stone and sell the plain band and wedding band to recoup the cost.

@MrsMc77:  Then I would just keep it! You can’t convert to a channel set unfortunately. It would compromise the integrity of the ring.

I think your set is great the way it is.

I like that wedding sets are asymmetrical. Only wedding sets are like that, pretty much every other ring is symmetrical. Wedding sets have a special look because they have a special meaning.

To put stones you already have in a band, I think your only option’s custom making a new ring.  If you get the enhancer, it’ll be nice to keep your other band, too – you could wear each one on different days, depending on your mood.

I once put 3 small diamonds into a plain band – bezel set – and also put one 1/2 ct. diamond into a plain band with prongs. I no longer have those rings. I’ll be honest, it was done by 2 different jewellers and I wasn’t crazy about either ring. One jeweller was someone who was quite talented and the other a recommendation through friends.

I would be afraid that you would be unhappy with the work, unless there is a jeweller you know who has experience doing things like altering an existing ring. 

I currently have a ring that I am making into earrings. The middle stone (it is a 3 stone ring) is an emerald, the other two diamonds. The earrings will be diamonds and I was thinking of making an emerald necklace out of the other stone.

If you are hesitant to modify your ering, perhaps a necklace made from the stones in your wedding band. Or a whole new custom designed ring with the diamonds from your wb. (you have lots of choices available!)

Personally I love your current wedding band and would wear it as a RHR. (I love the look of a curved band worn alone)
