A Jewelry Expert’s Top Three Tips for Upgrading Your Engagement Ring

Ready for a breath of fresh air? Upgrading your engagement ring may seem like an extravagant expenditure, but the practice is on the rise and we are all about it.

Why Bother Upgrading Your Engagement Ring in the First Place’

We know that to many newly-betrothed, it may sound silly. But once you’ve been wearing the piece along with your wedding band for so many years, most will find that a change is in order. Upgrading your bridal jewelry reinvigorates the soul and is the perfect way to commemorate the highs you and your partner experience as a couple. It’s a great way to mark a momentous milestone in your marriage, such as an anniversary, promotion, or the growth of your family unit.

Not only is it aesthetically exciting - it is also a great way to maintain the health and wellness of your engagement ring. Sometimes, the gentle touch of a professional is all a ring needs.

Tip #1: Investing in a New Center Stone

As you and your partner find more success in life, increasing the clarity or carat size of the diamond is a natural inclination.This is the route most women will take initially. Switching up the main attraction can give the ring a whole new look without deviating too much from what you loved so much about the original.

Tip #2: Adding a Touch of Something New

While replacing one or more aspects of the engagement ring is all well and good, some crave a change that is a bit more dramatic. There are plenty of elements and goodies to choose from if you find yourself in this category - many of our customers have enhanced their rings with the addition of auxiliary stones, elevating their solitaires to 3-stone engagement rings or more.

Some will even take a leaf out of TACORI’s book and go fully-fledged halo ring. Sure, it’s extra, but we think you’re worth it.
