I’m upgrading the diamond in my engagement ring & I would like to repurpose the original one. It’s just under 0.33ct. Any idea? The obvious one is a solitaire pendant but I think I’d like to do something a bit different (but still timeless).
The traditional stones are onyx (which I love!!) & Pearl. But I’m not sure they all go togetherHow about a 3 stone necklace? Your diamond and then the kids birthstones in a line? Just a thought!
Or a bangle ?
Do you wear bangles ?

I wear a thin Cartier love & single DBTY 24/7. I like the bangle idea!
Buy 2 coloured gemstones and make a right hand ring
If your sentimental a good idea if you have more than one child (to inherit your ER)
Although necklace isn’t top of list I could see this in a heavy bezelled pendant or double pronged pendant for something classic but a little different.
Both my other suggestions would mean adding a diamond/CS to the mix but I think these would be beautiful:
Etsy vendor photo I have in my “loves” list immediately came to mind:
And this bracelet from JbG that could have diamonds or CS for family birthstones (or even alternating diamond and pearls might be pretty too)
So, you’re buying a new diamond and a new setting? Why not keep the ring as is and wear it either as a RHR, a travel ring or when you want a change or to give to your kids. I’m upgrading now but I decided to keep my original set (I had the diamond recut because it wasn’t a good cut). I’m really happy that I kept my old set. I wear it sometimes. I’m sentimental and I also like the idea that my original set is intact as it was when I got married 20 years ago. Just a different perspective.......
