    First time: he picked out something without me. It didn’t suit my taste at all, but it was sparkly. 

    This time: we designed the engagement ring with a jeweler and I picked out my wedding bands. Every aspect is different this time around and I got exactly what I wanted.  : )

    I completely loved my first engagement ring, pure infatuation the entire time I owned it (I have it still, but the setting is empty and the diamond is in my RHR).  This time, I chose something different, and while it’s beautiful…I sometimes pine away for my old ring.

    I’m facing that situation and I’m very nervous about it. My first engagement ring was a 2.25 ct cushion cut in the exact setting I’d shown him, it was the very essence of me. 

    He cheated on me before the wedding and I called it off, and met the love of my life. The problem is he wants to do something completely different. I agree with him in that regard, but I know deep down I’m always going to want the ring I picked out for myself. Nothing else looks right to me.

    I had a round three stone in yellow gold last time.  I have this now.  My sets looked totally different even though they both have round diamonds….

    Lol this is a very old thread! But I will bite. Old ring was a 3/4ct H&A round, diamond and blue sapphire band.

    Current set 1ct princess-completely different and I  love it more

    I actually picked out the ring the first time. It was yellow gold and swirly. Over time, I started to think it was dated looking.

    This time, he picked out the ring without me there, but I had enough input for him to get something I really like. It’s white gold and kind of vintage looking. I think it will be more timeless than my first set.

    First time was Tiffany’s bead set ering and matching wedding band – super blingy and expensive. Yet I was never happy with it. 

    This time 3/4 Ring Bearer with tapered baguettes, custom made to look like my grandmother’s ring. Love it and it means the world to me and so does he.
