So you were proposed to by the right guy, but maybe not the right ring that suits your taste. It’s not the end of the world, it’s actually the beginning. There are a number of ways that you may choose to go about this, whether it’s upgrading or downgrading. The ring may need a few tweaks, but it is do-able. We’ve outlined a few of your options for going forward with an engagement ring change-up, which doesn’t necessarily have to be a total replacement.
You’re not the only one. An incorrectly sized ring is not a rarity. A jeweler would be happy to resize the ring to fit your finger perfectly for the highest level of comfort, causing it not to slip, itch, or stop circulation.
For a quick fix, changing the setting of the ring may be all that is needed. The beauty of handcrafted rings is the detailed efforts that are placed into them. To upgrade your current ring, you can add diamond accents on the shank, create a halo, or change the center stone to a three-stone ring, for example.
The metal portion of the ring is the foundation that holds it all together. This key component may be swapped out for a different piece. Platinum is a very common choice, but others include yellow, rose, or white gold. Your center stone and surrounding diamonds may look much better with a different choice in metal.

If it’s the cut or color of the diamond that is not fitted to your liking, it may be replaced, while keeping the rest of the ring intact. The different cuts of a diamond include round, princess, emerald, fancy, and a few others. White, yellow, and rose gold are the popular three among colors. A diamond may also be switched with a gemstone, and vice-versa.
