How to Upgrade Your Engagement Ring

When it comes to an engagement ring, couples usually choose something that is classic and will work well for the wearer’s day-to-day life, exactly as it should be. But that’s not always the same as the years go by.

How can you adapt your beautiful engagement ring into a piece that fits who you are after 5 years, 10 years, even 20 years together? We put together some ideas for how you can upgrade your engagement ring to fit your needs and make it even more special, years after you say “yes!”

5 Years

After 5 years together, it’s a great time to consider an anniversary band. Anniversary bands are sleek, stackable rings that can be added to your current wedding bands. You can choose from a variety of styles, from minimalist to diamond-encrusted. It’s a fun process to either include your spouse in or surprise them with a specially chosen gift. Consider the wearer’s lifestyle and choose a band that complements their current setting or can be worn daily.

Additionally, it’s important to keep your engagement ring in its best condition. Over time, it may accumulate dirt, oils, and damage. Consider having your ring professionally cleaned and inspected by a jeweler. They can restore your ring to its former glory by examining the diamonds and prongs and polishing it to a like-new condition.

10 Years

After 10 years of marriage, consider a gift that symbolizes the growth of your relationship. One option is a ring guard or enhancer, which can bring new life and sparkle to your partner’s engagement ring. These rings surround the original ring, enhancing its beauty. Make sure to try out the enhancer with the engagement ring to ensure they work well together.

Another consideration after 10 years is resizing your rings. Our bodies can change over time, and it’s common for rings to no longer fit as they once did. Schedule a resizing with a jeweler to ensure your wedding bands and engagement ring fit perfectly, allowing you to celebrate your anniversary with a renewed sense of promise.

20 Years

After 20 years of love and dedication, it’s a special time to consider remounting or resetting your original diamond. This is an opportunity to choose a new setting that reflects your current style and budget. Work with a jeweler to select a stunning setting from their inventory or collaborate with their designers to create the ring of your dreams.

Celebrate your anniversary and the journey of your love by updating the piece that started it all. Visit a jeweler’s showroom today and inquire about upgrading your ring. They can help you choose the perfect upgrade that represents your enduring commitment and love for each other.
