So I read posts every now and then about upgrading rings. I currently have a 1 ct round brilliant, and is georgous.
I have always wanted an emeral cut and was determined to have one for my e-ring. Darling Husband doesn’t like them because they don’t sparkle, so I found the round solitare and we went with that.
We’ve discussed upgrading at some point to an emerald cut (like a 5 or 6 year anniverysary present) and I’m not sure what I want to do about it.
I don’t want to “trade in” my original and wear the emerald in place of, cause it wouldn’t be my actual e-ring. What I was kind of thinking about doing was moving my original to my right hand, and wearing the emerald in it’s place. however I could easily just wear the emeral cut on my right.
what would you do?

In your case I’d wear the emerald cut on your right hand because you don’t consider it your actual e-ring.
I have no plans to upgrade but if I did I’d get the same cut and wear it on my left hand (I’d trade in my ering).

I have a round and I love that shape. If I ever upgraded I would probably just get a bigger stone, same setting.
Your situation is different because you want a different shape. In that case I would probably just trade the original stone in towards the new ring and get a bigger ct emerald. I do believe that emeralds came sparkle though! You just need the right cut.

In your case, I would set the original Ring Bearer into a pendant, and wear the EC in my original band, if a jeweler can make it fit.

In your situation, I would find a different emerald cut ring you love and wear it as a right hand ring.

I have recently fallen in love with cushion cut diamonds with a halo so it is my goal to get one as an anniversary ring but for my RH, I wouldn’t ever want to fully replace my e-ring.

@anotherbee: I know what you mean, I have a similar situation. I’m not sure if I definitely want to upgrade, but if I do it will be a WHILE from now.. maybe after a few years of marriage because my Fiance definitely wants me to keep the stone he proposed with. I would make that into a necklace, for sure. Since there would be no trade in it would definitely take a while to save up for a brand new diamond with a wedding and all!! So maybe a pendant would be the way to go as some other bees have mentioned previously.
Can you post pictures of what you have vs. what you want?? 🙂
