You look down on your hand and gasp. “The diamond fell out of my ring!” you exclaim as you look frantically on the ground and in between the seat cushions in a desperate attempt to find it. After weeks of searching every corner, you will have to admit the inevitable: it’s gone. But look at the bright side. Here’s your chance for a diamond replacement, perhaps even with a different type of stone. Not all is lost!

Whether you decide on a diamond replacement or are open to diamond alternatives for the wedding ring, we’ve got you covered.

Options to Consider for a Diamond Replacement

You have a certain connection to the diamond in your wedding ring. It has both sentimental value and makes the ring unique to you. Replacing the diamond with anything other than another diamond isn’t an option for you, and that’s OK. We don’t blame you one bit.

At the same time, you will probably want to redesign your ring to meet today’s styles and your current preferences, as well as to make it bigger or smaller. As you are looking for a diamond replacement, ask yourself the following questions.

Do I want a bigger diamond, a smaller diamond, or the same size diamond as I had before?

It’s possible that you have more savings today than you did when you got engaged many years ago, so replacing the diamond in your wedding ring with something larger or with more clarity may be an option.

On the other hand, you may have subconsciously felt uncomfortable with a large diamond for all those years. Maybe now, you can replace it with a diamond that is smaller or sits lower within the ring.

Or maybe the diamond you had before was absolutely perfect and you want one that’s just like it!

You can’t go wrong any way. Step into our jewelry store to browse our selection of loose diamonds to replace your missing stone. You’ll be sure to find the perfect size to meet your preferences.

Since I’m already replacing the missing diamond and changing the original appearance of the ring anyway, do I want to go all out and redesign the wedding ring completely?

Most people have an attachment to the stone in their rings, but now that the stone is gone, there’s no need to dwell on the past. Consider replacing any other diamonds in your engagement ring as well, including those in the wedding band.

Do I want to change the shape of the stone? And if so, which shape do I choose? There are so many!

If you are considering redesigning the ring as we mentioned, you have plenty of options. Some of the most popular diamond shapes in our Novi jewelry store include:

  • Princess cut
  • Round
  • Radiant
  • Oval
  • Marquise
  • Heart
  • Trillion
  • Pear
  • Cushion
  • Emerald
  • Asscher

If you need help deciding on a ring shape, heirloom-style designs are the trend for 2021. Because of the hardships we faced last year and continue to face this year during the pandemic, brides are leaning toward rings that have sentimental value and that can be passed on for generations.

Moissanite rings are popular diamond alternatives due to their exquisite shimmer and similarity in appearance.

Diamond Alternatives for Wedding Rings

And then there’s the option of deciding on diamond alternatives for wedding rings, and that’s a fun dilemma to have. There are many options for gemstones that can turn your ring from gorgeous to absolutely dazzling.

Choosing alternatives to diamonds can help you customize the ring to reflect your personality and that of your relationship with your significant other.

Replace the diamond with your birthstone gemstone along with his birthstone, for example. If you happen to be obsessed with a particular gemstone, like rubies, that may be a beautiful option as well.

In addition to rubies, popular diamond alternatives include:

  • Moissanite
  • Sapphire
  • Aquamarine
  • Morganite
  • Emerald
  • Amethyst

You might not know it now, but with some creativity and the help of a skilled local jeweler, you can design the wedding ring you’ve always dreamed of in the end.
