There are many brides who, after rediscovering their diamond engagement ring from their jewelry box years later, feel the same wonder, excitement and love as they did when they first set their eyes on it. And then there are brides who don’t.
Whether your taste or your situation that has changed over the years, if you are looking for means to upgrade your engagement ring, you’ve come to the right place at Padis Jewelry.
You may have fallen head over heels in love the moment you first saw your engagement ring, but if you’ve had a change of heart, you don’t need to feel ashamed or uneasy. Our preferences change all the time. With so many new trends and intricate designs for engagement rings today, you may feel the urge to change it up a bit.
This is a ring you are wearing everyday as a symbol of love and devotion to your partner, you should love it! Here are some ways to bring the spark back.
Go For A Bigger Stone:
With a few little adjustments, setting a new bigger diamond is one of the easiest ways to make your diamond engagement ring more noticeable and attention-grabbing. If your setting allows for it, our jeweler can simply set a bigger diamond on the band, making it sparkle even more than before.
Add A Set Of Complimentary Diamonds On The Shoulder:
If the main stone isn’t the issue and the bland broad shoulder is just not appealing enough, just add a band of smaller cut diamonds to get that heavier looking feeling off the ring. The detailed new band will make any plain-looking diamond engagement ring more intricate and exquisite.
A Single or Double Halo Will Do the Trick:
If a big-sized center stone is out of your budget, you can simply make it appear bigger by adding a halo of small cut diamonds to encapsulate the center diamond. It can make the stone look upwards of 20% larger and also serves as a natural “bumper” to protect your center diamond from damage.
Change the band:
You can always opt for a band change by either eliminating or adding more twists to your plain looking diamond engagement ring. Not only will it give the center stone more definition, it will also give the ring a whole new look.
Change the Ring’s Setting:
Many a times, the setting on the ring is too impractical. The end result is that it sits in a cushioned box on your dressing table. If ring sits up too high, it gets tangled in your hair and snagged on those clothes; too low and it shadows the intricacy of the ring. Get it fixed with just a few adjustments that we will be happy to make.
Change The Shape Of The Stone:
Not a big fan the shape of your center stone? Feel like everyone around you has the same cut? Perhaps consider a new shape! A different shape will change the overall look of the ring and certain stone shapes compliment your fingers and hands well.
Set Side Stones:
If a little enhancement or bling is all that you need, opting for smaller side stones is the perfect way to do that. When opting for side stones, you can either go with trillions, princess cuts, round stones, tapered baguettes etc. Traditionally, the three stones in an engagement ring represent “Past, Present, and Future,” a nice way to tie in the sentiment and span of your relationship.
So whether you’re upgrading your own ring or even updating grandma’s ring, consider these options and you’ll surely be happy with the outcome!
