Your wedding band is a beautiful and meaningful piece of jewelry. However, over time, your style and preferences can change. You also might find yourself wanting something new to reflect a certain milestone or another special event in your relationship. No matter the reason, the option to upgrade your wedding ring is available to you. 


When to Upgrade


Are you and your spouse celebrating an anniversary? Want to give your partner a gift to commemorate your relationship? These are all reasons to upgrade your wedding ring. You can also choose to upgrade “just because”. It really depends on your personal preference. Each of you can upgrade your rings or just one can – it’s up to you. Sometimes having both spouses can be a bonding experience and a chance to create further memories as you reflect on the ones already made. 


Reasons To Upgrade


There are several reasons you might want to consider upgrading your wedding ring. As stated above, you and your spouse might want to honor a shared anniversary. You also might want to upgrade your ring because your budget or style preferences have changed over the years. If your original ring was lost or stolen, this is another good reason to consider a change. However, you don’t actually need to have a reason. You can upgrade your wedding ring just because you want to.


How to upgrade your wedding ring


After you have decided why and when to upgrade your wedding ring, the next step is to think about how you want to do it. The first thing to consider is if you want to replace your original wedding ring completely. You can upgrade to a new ring and put the original wedding band on your opposite hand, or stack the new ring alongside the originals. In terms of how else to upgrade your wedding ring, you have several choices. Here are some things to consider:


  • Do you want a new stone? Larger stone? Different kinds of stone?
  • Do you prefer adding features like diamonds to the band?
  • Want to incorporate the ring into the original?
  • Would you want a new band? Similar design or a new one?
  • Prefer a larger size compared to the original ring?


These ideas and more can inspire you to think about how you want to upgrade your wedding ring. Please note that they are just a starting point. You can apply these questions to just one of your rings or all of them. When you’re ready to see your options, come visit us and our ring collection for more inspiration.


What To Do With Your Old Ring


If you do decide to upgrade your wedding ring, you also have to think about what to do with the original. You have several options. If you’d like to sell your original, you can trade in the ring when you purchase a new one. Your wedding ring holds sentimental value, so you don’t have to get rid of it if you don’t want to. Keep it as an heirloom for your children or wear it on the opposite hand.
