    @Over the Moon: I would get the same thing. Potentially I might get small baguettes in the band of the ering, but since I have a solitaire I think it would still feel pretty similar.

    I’d get the same thing but with a diamond either a tad larger or same size but better color. Heck, maybe both. Love my ring though and would want the same setting.

    As of right now, I’d get a new e-ring of the exact same style.  If my taste change down the road, I may consider a different style, but I’d definitely get a new ‘e-ring’ and not another piece of jewelry.

    the odds of me finding a ring similar without having it custom made again would be slim to none I would probably get something from the same designer but probably a mossy or something MUCH cheaper. I would be so paranoid after something happening to it once I would be terrified to have something real on my finger again.

    I would probably get a much, much cheaper ring. This one from Blue Nile is $45. It’s just pearl and sterling silver, which would perfectly suit my paranoid tastes if I had lost the expensive one :).

    I wouldn’t be able to get the exact same one because they make it slightly larger now, but I would get that one. I couldn’t imagine having anything different.

    I would get something completely different, just to complete the wedding set again. I love my current engagement ring, but it is sentimental, therefore irreplaceable. Anything I buy in its stead wouldn’t be the same, so I might as well get something totally different so I’m not comparing it to the original. I’d probably get a moissy. The insurance money would buy a pretty nice one. 🙂

    I’d probably get nearly the exact same style of ring but switch out the moissanite for an alexandrite and I’d open the bottom of the bezel for more light to be let in.

    @jo.lee:  Over the Moon is right, if you do this you would most likely forfeit the balance of your insurance policy (at least with any insurance company that I know of that requires you to buy jewelry).

    I know because I’m currently going through this. I lost my ring, and I’m in the process of replacing it with a new e-ring. If we weren’t working with insurance, I would have definitely considered cheaper alternatives, but, considering our situation, this would be wasteful and foolish. My new ring will still be what I consider my e-ring, but it will be quite different from the ring I lost. The lost ring had an heirloom stone, which was extremely high quality and on the small side (IMO). I can’t tell the difference between it and other good quality stones in the same size, so I don’t see the value in the extreme quality. I would have chosen to go with a larger stone that was still good quality, just not the extreme specs of the heirloom, which would cost about the same as the amount the heirloom appraised for. Also, the lost ring was a halo setting because I felt the center stone was on the smaller side and wanted the added carat weight and finger coverage. I won’t want this with the size stone we are considering for a replacement, so it is unlikely I will choose a halo. I would definitely miss having an e-ring if I chose not to replace it and just buy some other jewelry, but I prefer the change to searching out an exact replica. Even if I did find an exact replica, it would never really be the same. Considering this, I don’t see why it matters if it looks the same or not, it’s different either way so I might as well go with what I like best.

    Never had an ering before marriage, but if I had lost or had my original wedding ring or second set stolen, I would have got new ones. I have allergies to them, and they never were very “me”. If something happened to my new set, I would want to get the same or very similar at least, since this one is my own “dream set”!
