We''re celebrating our 15th anniversary and I''d like to purchase my wife a bigger stone. She has a beautiful 1.22 F VVS1 brilliant cut set in yellow gold. I was thinking of something in the 3+ range. She really likes her old stone, but to save $$ (who doesn''t) I would trade it in. How is one to go about this? Thanks (in sunny Tampa).

Tread carefully...if she really loves her old stone, she may not be willing to part with it. A three carat + is a wonderful anniversary present, but she may be remorseful about giving up her engagement diamond. Many women have sentimental attachements to their original diamond, and even if the original is only .10 carat the sentimental attachment to it is just too strong to give it up. You don't want her saying "The new stone is beatiful honey, but I miss my real engagement diamond."

Perhaps you could let her keep the original, and get her a three stone ring, or maybe a different shape? Ovals, emerald cuts, and pears have more of a visual impact per carat than rounds (although nothing sparkles like a well cut round), and you may be able to save some money by going with a different shape. Just a suggestion.
