Example of Updating or Resetting an Engagement Ring (with Photos)

reset engagement ring before and after

Like all fashion, engagement rings also go through trends, and what was popular years ago can look dated today. One way to update an engagement ring is to reset the center diamond into a new setting. Pictured above are the old and new engagement rings of a client who decided to reset her 1.04 ct. emerald cut diamond into a new setting.

The new setting was custom designed for the client and features u pave diamond setting, with G color and VS clarity diamonds, a diamond halo, and a prominent split shank, crafted in platinum. Notice how the halo setting makes her emerald cut diamond appear larger. Overall the new ring is much more contemporary.

The client mailed us several gold pieces for scrap, in addition to her original engagement ring, that were applied as a credit on her order. The eight round accent diamonds in the old engagement ring were reused to create a white gold diamond wedding band, pictured below at left.
