How many ladies here have upgraded their wedding rings?

I will be married eight years in November and I have upgraded four times. For my birthday my husband is adding an anniversary band to my newest set. I kept one of the other sets because it was the one I had on when I was in my accident. Am I spoiled or well taken care of??? LOL

  • I have never upgraded. I don't wear my diamond much anymore because when our oldest was a baby he had severe eczema and the diamond would scratch him and hurt him. I love my wedding band because DH and I designed them ourselves and used gold from his grandfather's wedding band and my grandmother's. We also had some extra gold that was ours and the jeweler used a little new gold to make both rings.

    I've been married 13 years and I don't think I will ever change or upgrade my wedding band because it is so special to me.

  • I guess I'm a bit sentimental, and pretty down to earth... It would be an insult as well to my Hubby if I told him I wanted an "upgrade". It's what he could afford at the time, and I thought it was beautiful then, and still do. It's not a huge diamond, but that's not my style really. I would feel tacky, and like I was trying to be something I'm not...

  • Have no intention to. This is what he got me and what I said my vows with.

    Adding an anniversary band isn't upgrading unless you remove the originals too.

  • I think I will probably will later on, maybe after 10 years together. To me 4 times in eight years is a lot, upgrading should be because you are renewing your vows or some other special occasion not just because you want a bigger rock.

  • I had once because the band was an open cut on the bottom and not flat so it wasn't very comfy when my engagement ring pushed against it. I got a flat band with channel set diamonds instead and it was super comfy after!

  • For me that would be a wast of money, one ring every other year?

    For our 25th Anniversary I got a up grade.

  • My husband has chosen each new set. The anniversary band is being added to the complete new set I was given for Valentine's Day. Well, as for it being a waste of money... all the bills are paid and the kids are well taken care of. Two of the sets were used to trade in and upgrade.
