I think that is an awesome idea! You will get the engagement ring, have it symbolize your marriage, and then your wedder will symbolize your wedding with friends and family πŸ™‚

What does the ring you want look like? Is the setting etc unique? I’ve seen before on the bee in other threads that the OP has posted a photo of the ring they like, and another bee has been able to post links to similar rings πŸ™‚

You could take the photo of the ring to a jeweler and see if they could re-design it for you? Some stores have crazy prices, and it can be a lot cheaper to go to a small, independent jeweler. You might even be able to buy a bridal set ( wedder and e-ring) which is a significant save.

I really love the idea that you have! And it will be awesome to have the moissy set in a piece of jewelry to symbolize the birth of your child πŸ™‚

Most jewelers offer payment plans too.

I’m dying to see this ring! Pics please πŸ˜€

I think it’s a fantastic idea (and that ring is gorgeous)! I don’t think it makes it any less special that you picked it. Also, if you can afford it (without having financial issues) I think you should go for it. Your whole idea about giving the moissy to your future child is so sweet as well!

I think you’ve found the perfect ring. Many brides-to-be pick out their own rings. I did. My Fiance came with me, but I made the choice. It is still very special because it signifies the union between the two of us.

I think you are onto a great idea. I do not think the ring is too fancy for a simple wedding – not at all!

Replacing the stone with another and having the original reset in a piece of jewellery signifying the birth of your first child is pure genius.

The ring is beautiful! And my mom has always had just an e-ring and my SO’s mom got married without rings altogether! My SO’s mom got an e-ring and wedding band from a family friend that was a jeweler but that was like 10 years later. Both situations for financial reasons, everyone is different and I love the symbolism of getting a diamond when you have your first child! Do what makes you happy because you’re the one that has to love it forever πŸ™‚

(Unfortunately) I was previously married and I had an engagement ring as my engagement ring & wedding band. For some reason I just didn’t want a wedding band and as my engagement ring was a nice size and 3 stone so I had plenty of finger coverage and therefore felt a wedding band would just be too much. Only a couple times did someone ask when I was getting married and I would tell them I was married, just didn’t wear a band.


I think if it’s what you want go for it! I think it’s a beautiful ring; moissanite is a great option! Plus that setting looks wonderful. And who says you cannot change your mind in a year and purchase a simple gold band? If you want an eternity band for around $200 that’s a little differnt I will gladly share with you where I purchased mine :] (It’s an online vendor.)


Btw I love your idea to reset your moissanite when you get a diamond!
