Is it ok to use an engagement ring from a previous relationship ?


Last week a young man came in the store and showed me a very nice diamond ring he purchased from another jeweler for his previous engagement. The ring had been a sizable investment and he didn’t really want to spend much more. I informed him we could either purchase the diamond outright or give him an allowance towards another diamond.

His question: ” Can’t I just reuse this ring?”

It’s a question I’m asked from time to time. The best advice I can give is to discuss it with your future fiancée. It may make economic sense to reuse it, but this can be an emotional issues. A good option might be to use the previously purchased diamond but select an entirely new setting, which was made just for her.
