When to Upgrade your Engagement Ring
Did you know that it's not expected that you keep the same engagement ring or wedding band throughout your entire marriage? It's actually a widely accepted custom for couples to upgrade their engagement rings after numerous years of marriage.
The decision to upgrade your ring is totally up to you and your spouse. There is no right or wrong time to upgrade a wedding ring, some major life events like big birthdays or milestone anniversaries present the perfect opportunity.
Best Time to Upgrade your Wedding Ring
The most popular time for couples to upgrade their wedding rings is the 10-year anniversary. Ideas for your ring from a simple update to a complete redesign, there are endless ways to upgrade your engagement ring. Here are some of the top ring upgrade ideas to get you started.
Upgrade the Stone
The most popular way to upgrade is by upgrading the stone. Whether you want something bigger or better quality, upgrading the center stone can make a big difference to your ring's overall appearance.
Get a lab-grown diamond twice the size of an earth-mined diamond of the same price. Lab-grown diamonds are real diamonds, grown in a lab. They are physically, visibly & chemically the same as earth-mined diamonds.
Add Diamond Accents
If you want to keep your original center stone for sentimental reasons but want to transform its look, try adding diamonds to either side of the center stone. A halo setting will make your center diamond appear larger while creating more sparkle.
Mix things up by adding a pop of color to your ring with sapphires, rubies, or fancy-colored diamonds. Not every gemstone is durable enough to be worn every day, but both sapphire and ruby rings are strong enough to stand up to daily wear and tear.
Change the Band
Are you tired of the original metal choice or wish you had diamonds on your band? Yellow gold is a timeless choice that happens to be trending right now. Diamond eternity bands are an excellent choice for big anniversary milestones. Platinum is a great alternative for those with metal sensitivities or allergies.
Get a New Ring
Now is the time to get the ring you've always wanted! Choose a different setting, a new shape, or a bigger and brighter diamond. The options are endless when you start from scratch.
Your Old Engagement Ring
One option is to trade your old engagement ring in, including the diamond and the setting, and get credit towards your new, upgraded diamond purchase at Arthurs.
If you want to keep your original ring for sentimental reasons; one option is to wear it on your right hand, another option is to melt it down and use its stones in your new ring, or lastly transform it into a new piece of jewelry, like a classic diamond pendant.
