Can I upgrade my diamond?

The answer to this question depends on a few factors. First, it’s essential to understand that diamonds are rare and unique stones. Unlike other pieces of jewellery, there is no such thing as a “perfect” diamond. Every stone has unique characteristics, which make diamonds so special. So you’ll never find a stone identical to your existing diamond.

Second, you should consider the emotional value of your diamond. A diamond is more than just a piece of jewellery; it holds great sentimental value. If you are emotionally attached to your diamond, you might prefer to keep it. However, there may also be emotional reasons why a ‘fresh’ redesign is needed. In this case, we can create a remodelled ring or pendant from an existing diamond or piece of jewellery.

Third, you’ll need to consider your diamond’s value. The value of a diamond today is unlikely to be the same as when you purchased your stone. The market value of diamonds typically increases over time, so your diamond may be worth more (but possibly less) than when you first bought it.

So, if you decide that upgrading your diamond is right for you, be sure to do your research and work with a reputable jeweller. Be prepared to budget for an upgraded stone. Finally, remember that upgrading your diamond doesn’t mean you can’t keep the existing stone.
