What about resetting your diamonds and gold and having a jeweler use the materials to make a new ring?

Why not make a pendant with your original diamonds instead?

Turn the rings into pendant/earrings/bracelet?

@NauticalBride2011:

@Just_Squeeze:

both very good ideas. I was going to say have the stones removed and put into another piece of jewelry, you can even have another band made, a bracelet, pendant, even earrings. You could have them use the gold in your band to make the new piece.

I LOVE your idea of your diamond in the center and rubies on either side, i think it would be beautiful and mean just as much to you as your original band because it’s custom just for you but still includes your original diamond. I’m not sure if chain shops do those things but you could call around and ask. I would try a few places to get their thoughts and price quotes.

anything made of metal can be fixed. trust me. if your jeweler said he/she could not, take it to a different one.

it looks like your ring broke at the solder joint. but whether it broke at the joint, or just broke randomly, it can be soldered back together. I suggest in addition to that, make the band stronger. you could have a thin sleeve of metal added to the inside of the band. it will only change the look minimally. however, that can be a little bit expensive. I had a sleeve added to mine, and it cost about $400 (it’s a lot of work). 

or another option- maybe by soldering the two rings together, they will be stronger as one.

if you can’t fix or reuse your old ring, maybe it’s time to put it away in a box until you can think of something to do with it. I LOVE your three stone ring. what if you started wearing it all the time, and got a plain gold band with it. I think that would be so pretty!

whatever you do, post pictures so we can see it! good luck!

I think your original e-ring can be salvaged, actually.  If you go to a good benchman, they can reshank 3/4 of that band without you even noticing work was done on it.  They would cut off the majority of the shank and then laser weld on a new shank.  I’m not sure if this is something you would consider, but it’s just my 2 cents!  Good luck!

I also agree, by the way, that the three stone ring with a plain band would look very nice.
