    Can you get the center stone reset as a solitaire and use the side stones for something else?

    It sounds to me like it’s not worth the fight with your Darling Husband. It obviously still means a lot to him and at least a bit to you as well. And what if you change it, and then look back five years later and miss the ring you used to have?

    If you want a solitare, just buy one and wear it on the other hand or something. Or ask for a simple ring as an anneversary ring? But no need to replace it because of a style change. That ring is the one ring that is supposed to be about more than just style.

    I don’t plan on changing or upgrading so I would stick with the same ring .. For all the sentimental reasons and especially because you waited and didn’t rush settling on something smaller to “fill in ” till finances allowed for what you really wanted … It seems like you got exactly what you wanted.. Maybe it’s just a phase ?? What does this ring look like is it really that fancy ? Its stinks you lost the original  though No more rings at the beach I hope !!

    @LoveNYC123:  I meant take the diamonds from the original setting and use the larger diamond in a solitaire setting as your “new” ring, and then make the smaller diamonds into earrings or some other peice of jewelry – or maybe replace the center stone with an inexpensive gemstone and wear it as RHR.  But since your “new” solitaire will be made with the center diamond from your original ring you aren’t really losing the sentiment.  I have many friends who have had their rings reset to update them, after 10 years you’d be amazed how many settings people thought were timeless are just not…

    If the center stone in your e-ring now is the size you want then re-set it because its still using your original… But if it’s not the size you want as a solitaire I would honestly stick with what you have .. That’s still a classic style that is still simple compared to what’s out there now… As far as wear and comfort a solitaire prob sits around the same hight so there’s not that much of an advantage for one or the other

    My first E- ring from my ex was a three stone from Kay’s  but with no side stones …. I grew tired of it after the 3 years I wore it … And apparently I grew tired of him too >.< but I never thought of changing it even though I liked everyone else’s solitaires ALOT ….. This time around I have a solitaire lol but that’s only because of how things ended up working out

    Look, I think you just want a new fresh start.  Your sentimental ring was taken, and now instead of wearing an imposter, you want something that reminds you that even though things change, you and him will remain the same.

     

    When we sold my oval to get money to move and Cedric’s (my dog) teeth mess, I couldn’t wear another oval.  We got a cushion, totally the other direction. Instead of a bright white diamond that was big on its own E color Si1, we got a smaller vintage cushion K color VS1 and banked a $2000 difference.

     

    I’d ask my jeweler to remove all the diamonds, melt the gold to put money towards a solitaire mounting, and remember that you did not lose your relationship, only a reminder of it.  No matter what ring is on your finger, you and your man don’t change.
