So you're thinking about upgrading your engagement ring...lots of ladies think about it and lots of them end up doing it! There are many reasons why you might want to "upgrade" your ring—perhaps you want to replace the setting of your diamond or maybe you want to get a different diamond because the one you have isn't quite your style anymore.
No matter your reason, before you take the plunge and head on this potentially tricky journey, let's talk about some things to consider first.
Talk About It With Your Significant Other
This is potentially the trickiest and most important part. Your husband or significant other spent time and money and put great thought and care into picking out the perfect ring for you, so wanting to upgrade could possibly be hurtful to him and guilt-inducing for you.
Taking the time to talk about it and expressing your feelings will go a long way in helping to allay any hurt feelings. Be sure to explain why you want to upgrade and share your appreciation for the original ring...this can really set the tone for the whole journey!
What Are You Willing to Spend?
This is another big one! We here at Mullen Bros. Jewelers believe in sticking to your budget. It's no fun to end up in debt and stress due to overspending! Just like with the original engagement ring, decide what you want to spend and stick to it!
What's Your Style?
It's always helpful to know what you like before you start shopping. With so many choices out there, it can be easy to get overwhelmed. Take some time to look through websites and magazines to find what you like. Look and see if there is a pattern emerging from the rings you like—this can really help you hone in on the perfect upgrade!
Get An Appraisal
If you are upgrading to an entirely new ring and are willing to sell or trade-in your former diamond engagement ring (This is not recommended for the extremely sentimental type!), go and get an appraisal for your current ring with a reputable and knowledgeable buyer. This will allow you to get the highest value to use toward your new engagement ring.
So you've covered all your bases and it's time to shop for the perfect upgrade...here are some great engagement rings to consider!
