This set was an upgrade from a similar looking set. I had my original set for about 3 years when the main stone came off and was lost. When I went in to the store I was really upset but the manager was very understanding and helpful. She calmly explained all my options, one of which was to trade in the old set and upgrade. We had planned on upgrading the original set in a few years anyway and this was just too beautiful to resist. The photos do not do any justice to how stunning it is. Also, the enhancer bands on my old set were not a perfect match to the engagement ring, and these being made for each other is so much nicer. They sit together so perfectly! We also chose to upgrade the head to platinum, as that was the piece that broke on my first ring and I definitely did not want that happening again this time around.
