  • I personally would fix it and keep it. That is the ring that your husband first gave you, whether it is the ring that you originally wanted or not.. If you want a new ring, buy a new ring. But you should keep your first ring.

  • I'd be afraid the guy who fixes the ring would do as good of a job as he did making the ring. You lost 2 diamonds, go somewhere else to fix it. And I would fix, not replace personally.

  • I agree with silversmom. Fix it, but have a different jeweler do it. And I would keep it.

  • i would fix it. It has sentimental value that way outweighs monetary value
