    oooh! congrats!  this is a great problem to have ๐Ÿ™‚

    tough call though… you could always wear one of them as a right hand ring.

    I would wear the one Fiance gave me and sell the other one to make our honeymoon more elaborate!

    if you’re Fiance is ok with it and you like it better, wear the new one as an e-ring. 

    You could also wear it as a right-hand ring, or have it re-set with a different gem stone to make it less bridal. Or have your original e-ring re-set as a necklace or something.

    You could just give me the one you won. I wouldn’t mind =P.

     
    Seriously though, if I were you I would still want to wear the one that my Fiance got me.

    I also have 2 engagement rings. At first, we were thinking of melding the two together but FI and I decided to keep the first one intact and give it to our future daughter should we have one. Or son or whoever, but you get the picture ! Because they look so similar, wearing one on my right hand and one on my left hand would definitely look funny ! Keep your first ring to pass down and it will make a great story for your future kids and grandkids ! Congrats !

    You are a lucky lady! If your Fiance wants you to wear it as an e-ring, and you want to as well, then by all means go for it! I totally would!

    Wear both! I would wear the one he proposed with on my left hand and the other blingy little number on my right!

    I’m WAY too sentimental to giveup my engagement ring.  I don’t care if I won my “dream” ring, I’d still cling to my first one.  So, I’d keep the original and sell the one you won and either put the funds towards the wedding or honeymoon… ๐Ÿ™‚

    wow!  you are one lucky lady winning all that!  But, I voted no to wearing the new onen even if your Fiance said he wouldnt mind.  Personally, I’d see it as not *the* ring he proposed with and I feel like it’d be different feeling to wear it as my engagement ring.  If it was something he considered and *would have* picked, but was out of budget or something and you were so lucky to win it, then maaaybe. 

    As for saving it for your children, I’d be worried that a styles in the future may be different.  Usually, isnt it the stones that are passed down and re-set?  If you really do love and at all emotionally attached to your first one, I’d vote to sell the second one now, while its current and maybe more trendy to have to recover as much from selling as possible.

    Keep us posted on what you decide!

    My e-ring is an heirloom.  I vote for that.  ๐Ÿ™‚
