Change is one of the most exciting parts of life. With each new chapter, wonderful opportunities await us, from getting that promotion at work to committing to your life partner.
Amidst all this, it's only natural that you'd want to refresh your engagement ring. Your love grows so why shouldn't your ring? As you conquer new obstacles and reach new achievements, it makes perfect sense to upgrade your ring to match your incredible journey. Whether you're adjusting a few things, jazzing it up or doing a complete makeover, here are 6 different ways we can help rejuvenate your ring.
1. Replace the Center Gemstone
A simple yet bold option, swapping out the center gemstone is a common upgrade. Maybe your round gemstone has become a little too traditional or you’d like to find a diamond with a better cut? You might even be interested in switching out the diamond for a gorgeous sapphire or an eye-catching emerald. Mountz has a huge variety of loose diamonds and stunningly beautiful gemstones, so whatever your choice is, we can easily find the perfect fit for you.
2. Change the Setting
Looking for an overall refresh? It's not unusual for people to alter their entire setting. You can always keep the gemstones from your current setting and incorporate them into a new one. By changing the setting, you can keep all the components you love while creating a brand new piece to fit your vision.
If you decide to go this route, this is a fantastic opportunity to use our Custom Design services. Mountz can remount, restyle, modify or even custom design the jewelry of your dreams. This includes taking your engagement ring and transforming it into the entirely unique piece you desire.
3. Add More Gemstones
Additional gemstones are a fantastic way to rejuvenate a ring, particularly those designed in the solitaire style. A pavé band or a halo can create stunning new dimensions of sparkle. You can also convert a solitaire into a three-stone ring, with one gemstone each to signify the past, present and future of your relationship.
Colored gemstones can add flare and significance as well. Incorporate your child's or partner's birthstone into your ring so you always wear a reminder of their love.
4. Try a New Type of Metal
Having trouble matching your current setting to an ever-evolving fashion sense? Or perhaps you're just tired of the color? Maybe you’ve discovered new materials that work better for your work or lifestyle? Changing the metal in your ring is a great way to alter the look entirely. However, this will mean a complete overhaul of your setting, so take advantage of any other changes you'd like during the process.
5. Add Accents
Love your ring, but want to give it some extra splendor and shine? Try accents. Introducing small gemstone accents can boost the sparkle, turning a simpler looking piece into something absolutely captivating. Peek-a-boo accents tucked along the side can be a bright finishing touch, enhancing glimmer in an often overlooked area of the ring.
6. Start Stacking
If you want to upgrade but you're not sure about making changes to your prized piece, stackable wedding bands might be for you. Extremely chic and popular, they provide extra dazzle without altering your engagement ring. You can also lend them additional meaning, such as wearing a ring to symbolize each child you have.
Make it a Mountz Moment
It's amazing how much your relationship has grown since your engagement. Whether that day was one, five or twenty years ago, it's worth reflecting and celebrating. You may have lived in different homes, changed jobs, and even started a family. Through it all, one thing remains constant, your love. We think that's absolutely beautiful.
Your ring should tell your evolved story. Right now, parts of your journey may not be told through that original design. An upgrade would be an unforgettable and exciting way to commemorate your extraordinary love. If you're ready for a refresh, there's no better place to go than Mountz Jewelers.
