My wedding ring setting I would never change, I love it as my husband designed it.
My wedding ring diamond... well??
My husband purchased the diamond all on his own over 11 years ago. He (and I) were both diamond illiterate. He was not given good advice from the jeweler/designer. It is not a very good cut at all and he was way overcharged. He trusted a professional who knew better. His intention was to get me the most beautiful, perfect stone he could afford. The fact that he was led astray and convinced that this was it, was not his fault.
I used to think that the moment we could afford it that I would change out my diamond for a far better one, but when the time came a few years later and I could have easily done it, I didn''t.
When I look at my poorly cut diamond, it actually warms my heart because I know what it was ''supposed'' to be in my husbands mind. I''ve grown to love it, imperfect as it is.
Hubby has asked (and may eventually convince me) to put it in a pendant for our daughter. If I decide to do that, then maybe I''ll think about getting a replacement. Somehow I''ve become pretty attached to it, so I still haven''t made up my mind.
