- Wedding: April 2011
Hey ladies! So I know some women upgrade their E ring later on down the road in their marriage, and I wanted to share what my husband did, because we got a neat deal on ours!
When he bought my first ring, he had just joined the military so he wasn’t making much money…and he also admitted that he was nervous I might say no! So he got me a nice ring that I loved, but didn’t spend a fortune on it. I was perfectly fine with the ring, I loved showing it off, it was such a sparkler! But then we got married and when we were picking out wedding rings, he had the lady pull out a larger carat size version of my ring. I was confused, and he said that was what he had wanted to get me in the first place, but just couldn’t afford it. But that the new one was mine. So of course I started crying and was excited and shocked all together.
He had planned all along to do a trade in. So he began making payments on the new ring, and once it got down to how much my original ring was worth, we traded in the old ring and got the new ring. It was kind of a neat deal. And he gave me the new ring on christmas 🙂
The new ring is exactly like the old one, three stone, with three diamonds down each side. I wouldn’t have wanted to get a ring that was any different than my orignal one. But this one was exactly the same. I’m very happy, and don’t feel at all like I have a totally different ring because it is exactly the same, just a different carat size.
Here’s some pictures so you can see what we did 🙂
