Have you been considering upgrading or replacing your current engagement ring? While changing your engagement ring was once viewed as taboo, or even “disrespectful”, today, many couples embrace this wonderful opportunity to encapsulate your ever-evolving love story. Though there are many reasons to consider changing your ring, each couple will have a unique driving factor. Below are just a few of the reasons people choose to upgrade their rings, as well as things you’ll want to keep in mind if you do so yourself!
But What About Tradition?
At Paris Jewellers, we understand the beauty and value behind the tradition of proposing with a specific ring and wearing that same gift for a lifetime. With that being said, we believe that all couples, as well as their love stories, grow and change over time. As you two progress in your journey together, you’ll face challenges, triumphs, joy, and so many things in between. While that one ring symbolizes the love and commitment that lead you to the alter, you may find that after sharing years together, you want something new that symbolizes the life you have together now. Though the love and sentiment behind your original engagement ring will always remain, there’s nothing wrong with choosing a new ring that you feel represents who you are today! Among the common reasons couples choose to upgrade an engagement ring are:
Your Budget is Different
For couples who married young, or who now find themselves in a much more financially secure spot in life, upgrading is the perfect way to give your love the ring they’ve always wanted but may not have been feasible the first time around. In this case, upgrading your ring is not only a beautiful way to achieve a dream, but also to celebrate how far you’ve come!
Your Style Has Changed
Life moves fast, and over time, most of us will find that our style and fashion preferences tend to evolve with age. Sometimes, what we once felt was the perfect fit no longer aligns with our current sense of self, as well as the way we wish to express that with our wardrobe and accessories. Jewellery fashions are ever-changing, and if you see a newer style that resonates within you, there’s nothing wrong with making a change!
As we said above, married life will bring you many moments of triumph and shared joy. Upgrading your ring is the perfect way to celebrate a special occasion like a monumental anniversary, the birth of a child, and so much more.
What to Consider
There are many ways to “upgrade your ring”, including changing the centre stone, adding an additional band, or even getting a completely brand new engagement ring style. No matter what you choose, know that there is absolutely shame in picking the best ring for your lifestyle!
