You adore your original engagement ring; it's a romantic symbol of the love in your relationship and devotion to your marriage. But sometimes change is a good thing.
What do you do with your ring when you want to give it a whole new look? Whether it's to celebrate new success or a new milestone in your relationship, or even because you just want something new and different, the possibilities are limitless.
From resetting your original diamond to completely upgrading your engagement ring, there are so many ways to reset and upgrade your engagement ring. Check out these unique ideas you can consider when you are ready to change up your engagement ring:
Upgrade To A Double Halo

What's better than one halo? Two! Upgrade your ring to a double halo engagement ring. While this style engagement ring has a unique, vintage feel, it is definitely an important trend right now for upgrades.
Want your engagement ring to look even more unique? Make one of the halos with colored diamonds or gemstones. The additional halo amplifies your center diamond's brilliance and makes the entire diamond ring look larger on your hand.
Add Diamonds To Make Your Ring A Three Stone Ring

You've been staring at your gorgeous diamond ring for years, but your center diamond has been looking a little lonely lately. Give your center stone diamond some sparkly friends by resetting your ring into a three stone ring.
Classic round cut diamonds emphasize your center diamond and add overall brilliance to your ring. Choosing diamonds in fancy shapes, like pear shaped diamonds pictured above, gives your engagement ring a completely individual design, an amazing change of pace from a plain solitaire engagement ring.
Add In Some Color

Itching for a pop of color on your ring finger? There are two ways to reset your engagement ring so that you can add in that splash wherever you see fit. Traditionally, colored gemstones are a tried and true way to incorporate some vivid color into your ring. Sapphires, rubies, and emeralds all have vivid hues which adds a completely unique and totally different look to your ring that further enhance the gorgeous color of your center stone.
Another way that you can add color in a more subtle way is to change the color of your metal when you upgrade your ring. Ditching the white gold for a rose gold setting with more diamonds on the band or an added halo may be just what you were looking for in your color upgrade.
Upgrade Your Plain Band To Something More Sparkly
If you were looking to upgrade your engagement ring in a subtle and sophisticated way, there are many different ways that you can add some sparkle to your plain band. Instead of a single pave set diamond band, upgrade to a two row sparkling pave diamond band. The overall effect is extraordinary, yet is still a timeless look without being overwhelming.
Another popular option for a sleek and elegant look is to reset your plain band with a 'V' french-set band, which allows additional light into your center stone and the surrounding diamonds, creating even more sparkle than before while still keeping that classic look.
Add Extra Diamond Bands To Your Halo
For women who love how their halo diamond engagement ring stuns but are looking for an additional upgrade, try upgrading your setting to one with a diamond halo and additional rows of diamonds on the band. Not only will your ring make an even bigger impact in terms of sparkle and size, but you are still able to retain that personality of your original engagement ring so you will always remember the day that you got engaged.
Vault Your Center Stone With Surprise Diamonds

The dazzling details of your engagement ring upgrade doesn't have to end with the diamonds along the band. Engagement rings that feature surprise diamonds, or peekaboo diamonds, are diamonds that can't be see when looking down on your engagement ring, but can be seen from other angles. We love surprise diamonds because they add a unique, romantic gesture in a hidden way, and they give your engagement ring more overall brilliance.
Completely Upgrade Your Center Stone
If you love the classic and timeless style of your engagement ring and want to retain the original look but still want to upgrade your ring in some way visually, you may want to consider completely upgrading your center stone. This is a great way to celebrate you and your partners' new accomplishments in life. It can also be a perfect way to symbolize how your relationship has grown since you got engaged many years back.
Trade In Your Ring For An Entirely New Ring

Sometimes resetting or upgrading your engagement ring by adding in side diamonds or upgrading the band isn't enough, and we get that. To get the look you have always dreamed of, you may want to consider trading in your ring for a completely new ring. Instead of trying to rework an existing diamond ring, you may find it more practical to upgrade to a new style band and get a bigger and better quality diamond - maybe even a completely different shape diamond - all at the same time. We love this because it represents success in the relationship and new beginnings.
