Def don’t reset it. You could keep it incase you have a son or daughter that want to use it. Sort of a sweet story to hand down. Plus you have an extra ring. But if you do think you’ll want money for it do it now rather then later. Reselling to another party you won’t get the same price as a 100% back return.

I love the oval! but, if you’re keeping the other, I would return it and put the money toward your bands.

charlie486:  wow! I’d say keep both, maybe you’ll be more into the oval ring’s style in a few years or could wear it on special occassions?

I would put the oval diamond in a white gold art deco ring. I know that wasn’t listed as your options exactly, but given the opportunity that’s definitely what I would do.

Keep it as an alternate engagement ring, or exchange it.  Basically this depends on whether the sentimental, or practical, reasons speak to you more.

charlie486:  i have on my finger right now a deco ring that I love, but I am absolutely fainting with lust at the Oval.

But I understand, if one speaks to you, keeps that one.

Personally I had pendants and don’t wear neckalsces, so I would return it and buy wedding rings and earrings.

I know what you mean about a piece calling your name! I just got an art deco OEC diamond ering and love it! Im 32 later this year and couldn’t get a flashy ring because I just didnt love them. Fabulous choice on the earrings! They are beautiful!

I’m all for #1.  I love that ring and I do think if you have a daughter that you’d like to pass a ring down to later, you can opt to wear one and give the other.  Plus if anything happened to one ring, you are blessed to have another ring that your FH picked out for you himself and felt would be equally special to you.   I won’t lie, I love that oval.  Even if you reset it I would keep it as a second ering to switch with.

charlie486:  Aren’t you the one who also got that adorable puppy with that ring?! Anyhow, I like the look of the second one better, though I think I would try and reset the oval diamond in a nicer setting – that one I’m not keen on but you could do something with it for sure. Then you could make the second one a RHR.

Edit: Scratch this…I just scrolled up and saw your earrings response! Very pretty!

If you can afford, save it and wear it for special occasions, then give it to your son (if you have one) when he wants to propose!

If not, I would exchange it…that way maybe someone else will enjoy the vintage beauty of it =]
