Hello

Me and My Hubby are renewing our 5years of being married (our vows) on March 13th but we're doing our big cermony and reception on May 23rd. I want a whole new ring and my hubby is not so caring with upgrading his or care for us both to upgrade. I have a question maybe some can answer...when you renew your vows aren't you supposed to at least renew the wedding bands for both spouses???
I do love my current ring i just want something different and i feel i earned another diamond lol...Thank you all for those who feel like they have advice. -Nef馃拲馃拲

    A renewal automatically means a new ring. I don鈥檛 follow that logic at all.

    I don't think that's a thing. In fact, I think most couple keep their original rings.

    I think it's personal preference, the traditional route isn't for everyone. Do what works for the both of you.

    I think, if anything, people just add an additional band.

    You have the option to upgrade rings or you could have a special message engraved into your original wedding bands instead. It's a decision each couple has to make together.

    Totally understandable that you would like a new ring! Nothing wrong with that.

    Here are a few more options/suggestions if an entire new ring set isn't an optionSmiley tongue Perhaps this will help your DH get on board too! Smiley smile Smiley smile

    Some ladies like to add an additional band to their original wedding set (usually the engagement ring and wedding band) The extra band is worn on the other side of the engagement ring to make the band and ring appear larger.

    (Images aren't exactly the same rings, but the concept is )

    For instance say this is your original wedding ring

    Upgraded Wedding Band and Ring 1

    Adding a band to celebrate milestone anniversary/vow renewals

    Upgraded Wedding Band and Ring 2

    Another idea would be for you and your husband to make modifications to your current rings, for instance replacing the diamond (increase diamond size, cut, shape, clarity, etc), adding other gemstones(I.E. emeralds, ruby, sapphire, etc), adding a design to the band, or anything else you would like!

    However, I think the best idea since you seem pretty determined to get a new ring, would be let your DH pick out the ring for you and you pick out a ring for him. This could be a special surprise, on your special day!

    Whatever you choose, I hope your vow renewal is a day of joy, love, and a wonderful celebration. Congratulations!
