Cubic Zirconia Wedding Ring, Buying Another Wedding Ring ?
Q: I had my ring recast. The used the original gold . It nice to have
the "original" ring and have it fit. Congrats on the 50 pounds!!
A:Have you actually priced what it would cost to resize it, vs. just buying a new one? I think this is the most important fact you must arm yourself with ; my guess would be that resizing will cost less (especially if yours is a simple narrowish band). That said: there are times when it's ok to be miserly. But if your wife would be hurt or offended by the suggestion of buying a new one, I'd pony up and have it resized. Peace and harmony in your marital relationships are worth something, and it's not like you can't afford it. I've thought about buying myself a band of some sort, a half-size smaller than my wedding band, since it's been falling off so much i've stopped wearing it. It wasn't expensive, but it's unique. I'd hate to lose it. I have some atrophy causing the left side to become smaller. Hate to resize the ring unless i knew if this is permanent. But in the case of a healthy weight-loss, i'd say resize the ring! It's just like throwing away the "fat" pants, planning on them never fitting again. I think the other posters' suggestions about arranging a new "exchange" of the new ring might also be a good compromise. Whatever route you go, I think it will turn out well if you approach your wife with your problem (ring to big), info on various solutions (cost of resizing, possibility of having to re-resize, cost of new ring, possibility of renewing vows, possibility of temporary resizing insert, etc.) and letting her pick from the various possible solutions. Of course, you have to be prepared for the fact that she may, even given all the information, pick an option that you consider sub-optimal. C'est l'amour! I think info-driven men tend to do a lot of research, and then go in declaring "this is what I want to do, and these are the reasons it's the best plan of action." Even if the woman *does* agree, it's hard to avoid feeling bullied by that sort of approach. A strong-headed woman (which I think it your wife, just a touch) may dig in her heals all the harder just so she feels like her opinion matters.
