Even if you’re a fan of Shane Co.’s wide selection of sparkling engagement rings, you may not be aware of our comprehensive upgrade program. Whether you’ve had your engagement ring for a while and are looking for a change, want to surprise your significant other by adding a new twist on their ring, or are just in the market for something a little different, taking advantage of our upgrade program is just another way we get to be your friend in the jewelry business.
But what, exactly, can you do to update your engagement ring? Read on to find out!
1. Upgrade the center stone
The center stone is the focal point of your engagement ring – whether you’re sporting a traditional diamond or a sparkling sapphire or ruby, it’s likely the first thing your eyes go to when checking out some gorgeous bling. Did you know that Shane Co. will put the full value of your stone towards any new upgrade? That means it’s easy to trade in your current diamond for a bigger one or switch out your sapphire for a diamond or ruby. Psst – an updated center stone also makes a great anniversary gift!
2. Change up your setting
Maybe your style has changed over the years, or maybe you just want to try out something different. Either way, upgrading your current setting can be the perfect way to get an all-new look. If you have a sentimental attachment to your center stone, updating your setting ensures that you can keep all those warm and fuzzy feelings – just with a different band.
3. Add a decorative crown
Nothing’s better than more bling, right? Along with upgrading your setting, adding a decorative crown to your current center stone can create a fresh look without trading in your entire ring. Choose from sparkling diamond single and double (or more) details, or add a pop of color with sapphires or rubies.
4. Add an engraving
Sometimes, there’s no better way to say something than to write it down. Adding an engraving with your wedding date, you or your partner’s initials, a sweet nickname, coordinates of the place you met, or another meaningful message can add a whole new layer to your engagement ring. At Shane Co., all engravings can be done for a flat fee of $50 – so it’s never been easier to do.
5. Add a band (or stack ‘em!)
Picking out a wedding band to pair with your engagement ring can add an entirely new element to your left-hand look. Try an on-trend contour band, a classic gold band, or something paved with diamonds! If you already have your wedding band, adding a stackable ring to your collection can be a great way to spice things up.
There you have it!
