I have been married for almost 4 years now, when my husband proposed, he just bought the ring without me knowing it, I love my ring, but I have been seeing other styles (halo) and I love it… Now, I kinda wanna tell him I wanna get another ring, I wanna keep original diamond engagement ring, and get a bigger moissy or Morganite ring. . but I don’t want him to be offended…
Should I even bother? Help please..

Alot of people get anniversary rings. So I’d just tell him that you don’t want to replace your original ring and that you just want to get an anniversary ring (even though it may not be your anniversary). You could wear your original rings on your right hand. Just try bringing it up in casual conversation and if he gives you a bad reaction then drop it. Goodluck

its something you need to talk to your husband about really. I am lucky my husband knows I have a ring obsession and is fine with it.
however I like the sound of the ring you want x

I agree with MrsSparkle. Bring it up casually, maybe even show him a catalog picture or TV commercial picture that you think looks great, ask him what he thinks about an added ring or an upgrade ring, and then see where the conversation goes.
I’m pretty direct and outright told my hubs that I like a-bands and want to switch it up on my finger. His only request is that my finger look married. Well, and that my many new rings don’t break the bank.
eta: I also agree with Mrs KDW, too, she just posted while I was still typing

im just gonna keep on looking around, then maybe ask him for it for our 5year anniversary next year..
i love how the morganites look, but im pretty clumsy and keep on bangin my hands on walls, chairs etc…and i heard morganites are prone to scratches , so thats probably not gonna work for me..i still love em..
i might go with the moissanites…we shall see!!!

I just did this after 8 years. Well I’m waiting for my Amora gem for Mother’s Day. I would just say for the next occasion coming up that you were scrolling through the internet and you found this amazing ring!! It’s not as expensive as a diamond but it will last forever and you would love to mix up your bling every once and while. my husband was confused at first but it was a little easier in him bc I am allergic to my engagement ring but do not want to get rid of it but once I exained he was like whatever you want.

I think you just need to bring this up with your husband. I know for a fact mine would be extremely offended/upset if I really wanted to chagne mine, upgrade, get an “anniversary” ring or however anyone wants to sugar coat it. It’s the biggest purchase he’d ever made, more than his car at the time, and he’d be hurt if I didn’t think it was “good enough” and wanted a bigger moissanite to replace it. I can buy as many RHRs and non white gems and other rings as I want, but this will be the one and only e-ring for me. A lot of men don’t feel the same way though, so you just have to feel yours out and see how he feels about it.

I’ve just asked. He hasn’t been offended but I chose my first eng. rings so that might make a difference. I’ve also clipped magazine pages, made screensavers, & sent links LOL. I repurposed the first stones into other jewelry and sold one.
I’d bring it up casually and gauge his reaction.
