Hello ladies! I recently looked at my Diamond and experienced Diamond shrinkage and I hate the fact that my set doesn’t “match”. So hubby and I have decided maybe it was time for an upgrade. I have 3 options:
1) keep what I have: The current set I have right now features a 0.60ct Vs1 solitaire engagement ring. The wedding band consists of 5 diamonds (0.10ct each) Which are around si1 quality. I hate the gap between my rings.
2) upgrade to this set: the set I have my eyes on is a halo with a round Center Diamond weighing 1.00ct (I’ve always wanted a 1 carat diamond ring)…BUT the clarity is only SI1. It comes with a matching wedding band also.
3) make a completely new ring set: using the diamonds and gold of my current ring set and the ring my mother gave me on my wedding day, make a new ring. I was thinking of turning my existing diamond solitaire and wedding band into a halo ring.
I have a design in mind but it’s expensive to custom make a design. If I choose this option , it may not happen until I save up enough money. And I’m not sure if I’ll experience shrinkage again with my current stone.
sorry its long!! thanks!

I think your current stone and set are absolutely lovely. Wouldn’t change it.

I love the original set far more than the halo. But my taste is more for classic simplicity.

Why don’t you have the e-ring reset so that it fits closer to your wedding band and maybe add a small spacer to close any remaining gap?

I like your current set, tbh.

I prefer your current set. I love halos and have one myself but your current set is much more beautiful Than the halo set. Maybe just get a new band that sits flushed with your current?

Your set now is magical! Sorry but the halo seems a little cheap and you wont be able to wear that gorgous wedding band that you have now! Why not just upgrade your solitaire’s center stone?

I’ve always liked that first set so I’d pick it over the halo. Why the new account btw?
Do you still have your 1 carat equiv moissy? You could see if you could have your current diamond set in that setting since it looks like it sat flush with your wedding band: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/canadian-bees-show-me-your-rings/
I do remember that several posts of yours from before tended to show that you weren’t too happy with the size though. So if you’re going to keep getting the upgrade itch, then maybe the halo is the way to go for you.

Lol, wow, you remember everything! Well the whole point of me making a new account is because I wanted a different username, didnt really like “Mrs bun in the oven” haha. I did ask before about my ring set , but I was always either too scared to upgrade or I just didn’t have enough extra money to do the upgrade.
Yup I still have my 1 carat moissy but I realized I’m a diamond kind of gal. I still love my moissy but I just dont like wearing it as my e-ring.
Maybe ill go try on the halo soon and post a picture of both sets side by side to compare.

You could have just requested a username change in the support section 🙂

I think your original set os more beautiful, gap and all. I wouldn’t change it for the option you are considering.

Your first set is so pretty and classic, I wouldn’t change it except possibly to get the e ring reset so it sits closer to your wedding band as PP mentioned.
Oh, and you can’t put anything by the Grid:-) she has an amazing memory!
