I think you should get a replacement ring. If the original ring is already fading and giving you so many problems and stress it will only get worse. As others have said...this ring is FOREVER! I would rather get the new one now then after your married.

i totally agree with morgan, and i adore the "new" ring. just move the "old" one to your right hand when you get married and use the "new" one on your left hand.

it is really pretty by itself!

That's a really cool idea!

I voted to go with a new ring as well, just so that you don't have any bad memories of it going in. Make sure you do your research this time and get exactly what you want. I have a sapphire and highly recommend it if you are not looking for diamonds. Sapphires and Rubies are second in hardness only to diamonds and won't fade. I am sure you can find a great ring with a wonderful stone and one that you can wear forever!

Your first ring will always be special to you, but you do want something you can wear forever, and something you can get a wedding ring to match!

Well, after a couple of days, finally some good news :) I got my e-ring back from the shop, and after a new rhodium coating and a nice buffing and cleaning of all the stones, it looks amazing cheesy.gif Still faded, but I think the fading over the past two years may be due to the cleaning solution used at the store. SO, I've decided to keep the ring as my e-ring for now, because after the wedding I'm going to wear a plain band (again, cosmetology doesn't really allow for stones lol) so I won't be wearing the e-ring that much anyway. But before I make that my final decision, I'm going to make sure that this ring won't fade anymore as long as I take good care of it. If it WILL continue to fade despite my tlc, then I WILL be switching the e-ring and maybe buying the e-ring and my wedding band as a set so they're guaranteed to match, but if I'm assured 110% that they won't fade anymore if I take really good care of them (and keep them away from that damn solution lol) then I'm going to keep it :) But thanks so much for everyone's advice and input, it was greatly appreciated cheesy.gif And it helped me come to my final decision. If it does continue to fade, I'm definitely switching the entire ring and doing my research this time wink.gif

The ring you want to replace your e-ring with is GORGEOUS... I typically don't go for engagement rings that are not diamonds, but that one is definitely an exception to my rule.

 

I notice that a lot of people outside where I live (NYC) go for e-rings that are not diamonds... any reason why? Or any reason why we do? I just find it odd... isn't the symbolism of a diamond supposed to mean forever?

 

Just curious wink.gif

I can't speak for everyone, but for i think it is just a matter of personal preference - just like the metal you choose, gold, white gold, platinum, whatever.
I chose a sapphire because i have always loved sapphires. They have such character and personality. To me, diamonds are pretty, but they just don't really do anything for me. I wanted something special and unique... and since 90% of brides have diamonds, well, i wanted to go a different route. I think more and more brides are wanting something unique and suited to them.cheesy.gif

btw - "Diamonds are forever" is an advertising ploy put forth by DeBeers to increase the popularity of diamonds and thus make more money. You guys might find this article interesting...

The History of the Engagement Ring

I'm one of these girls that HATES diamond solitaires... They're pretty, but they're 'belly button' rings, everyone seems to have one... My friend got engaged shortly before I did and she got a solitaire, and for the life of me I can't remember her ring perfectly, or any of the other solitaires I've seen from girls. They blend together so I have no idea what my friends' rings look like. So I wanted something VERY unique, everyone knows I LOVE pink, and nobody has EVER forgotten what my e-ring looks like wink.gif That's my reason. PLUS, if I ever lose my ring by some unfortunate event, I'm not out thousands of dollars, just a few hundred :) Therefore, I can afford a suitable replacement (like now) without too much cursing and swearing lol

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
