Have you ever considered what it would be like to have a new engagement ring? If so, you are not alone, the trend for upgrading existing engagement rings - or buying totally new engagement rings, is gathering swift momentum in both the US and the UK.

Think about it - you may have been married many years ago, when money was a little less flowing and memories and special births of children had yet to happen. Or perhaps you still love your engagement ring - but at times you would like to wear a different ring on your wedding finger - perhaps in a newer design - or with a stone to signify the memories you and your husband or wife have made together over the years of being married? Whatever the reason, there are many married couples in the US and UK seeking out to upgrade or replace their engagement rings.

Many couples are upgrading the stone in their current engagement ring - with coloured stones becoming more and more popular by the day many couples have been swapping their white diamond for a coloured stone that commemorates and signifies their unique lives together.

Blue sapphire and blue diamond replacement stones are being bought for mothers who have had boys, pink stones for those who have had girls. Rubies have been bought to replace white stones to represent the everlasting love between a couple and yellow sapphires and diamonds have been bought to represent enduring love, appreciation and happiness.

Emeralds represent infinite patience, it embodies unity, compassion and unconditional love. Whatever memories you and your husband or wife have enjoyed during your years of marriage together so far - there is a coloured stone to commemorate and represent that.  

Whatever your marriage story - perhaps it's time to proudly display it in coloured stones on your wedding finger, while you are on your way to making many more happy memories together.
