TIPS TO UPGRADE YOUR DIAMOND
Introduction: When To Upgrade Your Engagement Ring
When you and your partner were first engaged, you probably could not wait to tell everyone and show off your glamorous ring. Over time your personal preferences may have changed, and you are looking for something fresh and new for your engagement ring. At Rogers Jewelry Co., your bridal rings must match your overall aesthetic and style. Our team will be happy to help you discover tips to upgrade your engagement ring to excite you about the item that continues your love story.
Upgrade to a Larger Diamond
If you feel like your engagement ring no longer has the flair it initially did, consider upgrading to a larger diamond. You and your partner may have yet to be able to afford what you desired for your first ring, or your style may have changed since you first got engaged. Either way, upgrading to a larger stone is a great way to breathe new life into an old ring. A larger carat size will create a sparkly spotlight that family and friends will admire.
Change to a Different Diamond Shape
Diamonds are available in an array of cuts and shapes, from the classic round brilliant cut to unique cuts that speak to your personality. Choosing the best diamond shape depends mostly on personal preference. For a chic and elegant look, emerald cut engagement rings with parallel facets create a distinctive appearance that radiates sophistication. Romantic and feminine, many adore the elongated curves of oval cut rings. They are a beautiful choice that makes your fingers look more slender. If you want a diamond that will make a statement, opt for a pear cut, which is both dramatic and elegant with its pointed and rounded sides.
Add Extra Diamonds
Another way to make your ring look new again is to add extra diamonds as side stones around the band. Doing so will boost the overall design of the ring by framing the design's details. Adding side stones is also a great way to add different diamond shapes if you want to change your ring's look without changing the center diamond. Consider replacing colorless stones with vibrant gemstones such as sapphires, rubies, or emeralds. If you want to add stones that truly speak to your personality, add in your birthstone to make the design even more meaningful.
Change the Setting
If you're not looking to make any changes to the diamond itself, another way to switch up your look is to change the engagement ring's setting. You may have a solitaire setting, but you're looking to spice things up a bit and add some side stones to the band to make the design sparkle. In this case, a halo setting is a fantastic option. They are known for their dazzling center stone encircled by diamonds or gemstones that can make the center stone look more impressive. Side stone rings also offer this added flair. There are endless possibilities regarding settings, some of which may be the correct change you seek in your engagement ring.
Use a Different Type of Metal
The metal that your ring is made of also plays a role in the overall appearance of your ring. Consider switching to a different type of metal. Rose gold has become increasingly popular in recent years for its unique hue, and white gold is a classic choice that will never go out of style. Try upgrading to a white gold metal to give your ring a more modern look. Platinum is also often used in engagement rings because of its durability and how well it complements diamonds. Try palladium if you prefer a metal that is also resilient to discoloration.
