Engagement Rings: Is it Time to Upgrade?

Diamonds on Deck!

In today’s relationships, there always comes a time when you begin to question your original diamond engagement ring. Depending on your original stone whether its flawless or flawed, or smaller then a pea, many women find that after years of marriage they want to upgrade their diamond ring. Some men may question why we would ever want to change our original ring and the answer is “the reasons are endless”. Your taste may have changed, you may now be able to afford something that you would have never been able to in the past, or your diamond is damaged. Whatever the reason may be, you will be able to reaffirm your love for each other that has lasted through the years.

Upgraded Center Stone

Be forewarned ladies, unless it was your husbands idea, this discussion can potentially lead to a war zone. Sometimes whoever brings up this topic may offend his/her spouse by wanting to replace something that has immeasurable value, but try not to look at it in that light. In some cases, couples who are married young are unable to afford the ring that they would rather have, but that doesn’t take away the love that it symbolizes. Unless you are sure this wont open old wounds, be cautious in asking for a bigger and better diamond, yours just might have more symbolic value then you would have ever thought possible. Not only for you but for the person who picked it out.
