I designed my ring, so I don’t ever see getting an upgrade. If ever, I might get an anniversary ring or when we have kids an eternity band as a representation of the baby. Unsure for now. What I’m sure is that I’m not upgrading my ering. Maybe the wedding band.

Did you find your ring yet?! How nervewracking. I upgraded sort-of, I originally had this .37 ct. emerald cut:
But it just always looked dirty and dull to me even though it had great clarity, I could never keep it clean (working in a bakery). I would scrub it like 5 times a day! So I got this new one:
.54 ct. cushion cut, the clarity isn’t as good but it’s so sparkly, you can’t tell. I love my new stone 🙂 Fiance doesn’t care because I paid for the upgrade.

@Kriddlelouise: my ering is absolutely perfect. exactly the way i envisioned (FI designed it himself). no upgrading for me.
i’m trying to decide on what to go with it, a plain band or a band to match my ering.

I always thought I would, before I got engaged. I always thought that I would get engaged and then get it upgraded at 5 years or 10 years. Now that I have my ring, I will never upgrade. It won’t have the same meaning. I love my ring.

Love everyones comments! I guess I didnt mean upgrade, as i would never change my current rng and would not give it up for anyone!
I have FOUND my ring! It really brought into perspective for me how much my ring means to not only me but my fiancee. Its not about how big it is, or how much I love it, or ethical reasons (as he already brought it) but its about what the ring means; it means he loves me and wants to spend the rest of his life with me!
In the future, when we are older and in a better finacial position(JUST brought our first house ) I may consider getting a newer one but it would be for ethical reasons when the time was right and I would not be handing over my current one!

I upgraded aswell mine was a band with a tiny diamond from Tiffanys
I was only a teenager when i picked it and of course, taste changes
this moissy is now my baby and the tiffany band is in my jewellery box.

@Kriddlelouise: no, I’d never upgrade her, but then again, I had a say in what I wanted. I WOULD get an anniversary band or a “push-present” ring that I might wear instead of my e-ring w-band combo later on, but I’d always keep my rings as they are.

@ajillity81: EEEE! emerald cut!! Beautiful!! I’m getting a very thin 1.5mm plain band to go with mine, I don’t want it distracting from the epic beauty of my e-ring!
Yours is GORGEOUS!

Nope! I love it just the way it is, and am too sentimental to ever want to change it. Its perfect. 🙂 (I mean seriously.. LOOK at my set! :D)

I am immensely attached to my engagement ring, and I don’t plan on ever “upgrading” it. It’s already plenty blingy for my tastes with 0.25 carats of diamonds on the band, and I won’t want/need a bigger or higher-quality diamond since my center stone is actually a garnet that’s already the exact size/shape/color I want.
My Fiance and I will eventually make more than we currently do, and if Fiance is ever itching to drop some cash on some jewelry for me, I can think of other pieces I’d like to add to my collection rather than replace my engagement ring, which I consider to be priceless 🙂

No I wouldn’t change my ering (unless god forbid something happened and it needed repair/fixing). This concept of upgrading is really unfamiliar to me I’d never heard of it before the Bee.
Everyone I know gets ONE e-ring and ONE wedding band and that’s it (unless they are lost/stolen etc). Of course you can always ask for eternity bands to add to the wedding finger and there are always RHRs to be got for the other hand but usually tradition round these parts is that the ering and wedding ring stay original.
I won’t be upgrading. I have two wedding bands now – one plain for practical purposes and one eternity. The latter was the original plan but then SO said he wanted me to wear a ring at all times like he’ll wear his so he got me an engraved vintage platinum band as well 🙂

I wouldn’t upgrade my engagement ring. But I would consider getting a new anniversary ring and wearing that in place of my wedding band and/or engagement ring. I would never trade my ering in or upsize the stone. I’m keeping this baby as-is for life, even if I don’t wear it every day.

I don’t think I would change my e-ring in any way, strictly because I love it!
But I am still not opposed to anniversary bands, or RHRs…I love rings of all kinds.

I won’t be upgrading. If I ever feel the need for another diamond ring then I’ll just wear it on my right hand.
