Engagement Ring Upgrades

Your engagement ring is probably one of your most prized possessions as it holds so many sentimental emotions and memories. It is the symbol of your devotion and commitment to your marriage and significant other. But sometimes, after years of wearing the same ring, you may start to consider resetting your original engagement ring for something new.

The possibilities are endless when upgrading your engagement ring and in many cases, this is a way for you to finally pick out the ring setting or style you've always dreamed of. You can reset your plain solitaire diamond ring to something with a little more sparkle, change the center stone shape, or even trade in your original ring for an entirely new one!

Here are 7 of our favorite ways to reset your engagement ring. There really is a reset style for everyone.

Add Some Glamour to Your Ring

Glamour Ring

Resetting your ring is the perfect opportunity to get the glamorous, sparkly ring you've always wanted. Many times when couples first get engaged they cannot afford a large center diamond or a setting with many diamonds but as your relationship progresses and you achieve more in life, you may be able to finally afford the ring of your dreams. This new ring can represent how far you have come as a couple and celebrate your successes. Resetting to a halo or a more diamond intensive band will give your ring a new 'wow' factor!

Add Some Sparkle to Your Plain Band

Pave setting

If you love your solitaire ring and still want a clean, classic look but with a little more sparkle, consider changing your current setting to one with pave diamonds. Pave diamonds have the appearance of being 'paved' together so you see little to no metal. This is an easy way to get the new look you want while still keeping the focus on your center diamond.

Add A Pop Of Color

Adding Colored Gemstones
