Just tell them the original one was a stand-in ring until you picked one out you love.  It’s none of their business, though.

Tell them you just got a temporary ring because you weren’t sure what you wanted and wanted to pick the right one since you’ll be wearing it for a really long time.

It was a stand in ring while you shopped for what you wanted.

lola88:  If someone asks state that was a temp until the original was completed.  I won’t be telling anyone that I upgraded at all, if someone asks I’ll say something but for the most part it will look the exact same just slightly larger.

You could tell them that the setting wasn’t exactly what you were after and you decided to pick a ring out together.   There is nothing wrong getting something you are happier withand you don’t have to justify it but I do understand why you feel like you need to.  I wouldn’t even mention it unless someone asks.

Say your weren’t happy with the last one and your fi didn’t mind that you wanted something different. It’s just easier.

Depends on what you said about the first ring…..did you let people think it was a diamond? simply saying “we upgraded” covers a lot and is perfectly acceptable to say. The less details you give, the less questions you will have to answer…..change the conversation after your “upgrade” statement if yu are not comfortable discussing it further. Uts a beautiful ring!

Your new ring is beautiful. I agree with daisybee, just say the first was a stand-in, which is true.
