When to Upgrade Your Engagement Ring
Why Upgrade Your Engagement Ring?
Couples might want to upgrade their engagement rings for a plethora of reasons. Some wait for big events like the birth of their first child or a milestone anniversary, while others may do so because they feel the style is outdated or no longer fits their wardrobe. There is truly no wrong or right reason to have it done.
Renewing Your Vows
A vow renewal is one of the most popular reasons couples decide to upgrade. Typically done after the couple has been together for several years, vow renewals are done to reaffirm the couple’s commitment to one another. The original engagement ring set can be altered to fit the bride’s changing style, or a new set of rings can be made to symbolize the way the couple has grown since their wedding.
For A Meaningful Occasion
The special occasions that a couple celebrates together are innumerable. Anniversaries, holidays, and birthdays are all great excuses for upgrading an engagement ring, reminding spouses of the appreciation and love they hold for each other. Even more sentimentality can be given by adding a birthstone or a gemstone with a special meaning to them.
To Repair the Band and Gemstones
As years pass, engagement rings face the unique challenge of being one of the most often worn jewelry pieces. This means it is more susceptible to the wear and tear of everyday life. A popular option is to create a new ring that incorporates elements of the old one, mirroring the gemstone placement, color, or metalwork. If a band is lost or tarnished, it can be recreated by a skilled jeweler armed with photos of the original.
Reflect Your Change in Style
All things change with time, including your sense of style. As people mature and grow, they may come to realize their engagement ring no longer fits within their jewelry collection. Perhaps a ring was in-vogue when it was originally purchased but now looks outdated, or a change in lifestyle and careers might warrant an entirely different kind of ring. The sky is the limit, as there are countless options and designs to choose from.
Ways to Enhance Engagement Rings
Couples who are happy with their style of rings but want to restore them to their former glory often choose to have the ring refinished and polished. Other simple ways to upgrade are to have the band engraved or add a ring to create a stacking ring set. For a dramatic change, switch out the metal type. This can give a ring a fresh appearance, with the bonus of being less expensive than replacing the center stone.
