I feel the same way sometimes.
I LOVE my husband, but ering was far away from something I wanted since he was a grad student at the time. My original ering is 0.5 ct diamond (kind a low quality diamond) solitaire in 4 prong 18k white gold ridiculously high setting (which I hated and resetted as low profile) while my dream ring always has been 1ct diamond in 6 prong platinum (real) Tiffany setting.
You can tell the huge gap between reality and theory, right?
But when I received it, I cried because I thought he would buy something even worse and I could tell that my husband who doesn’t know anything about diamond and was on tight budget worked hard to get an ering. So, I would never trade it for world.
But at the same time, I couldn’t give up my dream ring, so recently, I purchased Tifanny replica ring with very beautiful high quality diamond simultant. It came out beautiful and of course I have been so happy, but there is a thing I noticed.
Bigger is not always better. In other words, small stone and big stone have different kinds of attraction, and there is beauty of only smaller stone has. When you have different size of stones with same cut, you can see that each facet of smaller stone are smaller than that of bigger stone’s, so the how they shine is different (hard to express it in words).
Of course, big stone is more outstanding and have gorgeous fire.
In short, it was good to get a ring I wanted to manage my ring regret. Now I use 2 rings (actually more than two) depending on how I want to express myself. When I feel like showing off big stone, I wear fake, and when I go date with husband or trying to make myself look cute, frugal,modest, and humble person, I wear original ering.
Fortunately, my husband doesn’t care what I wear that much, and he himself lost his wedding band already but I don’t care either. (I thought he would lose right away so got cheap band for him so it is fine.) I think you don’t have to stick to only one ring. I mean if you want to, you can get something you like for RHR etc anytime!
