Second marriage engagement ring

A marriage is a special moment, which deserves all the celebrations, romance and symbols of love that characterize it, no matter if it is the first or the tenth. This includes of course the selection of a beautiful second wedding/engagement ring that identifies the couple.

But as an excellent opportunity to do it right a second time, many doubts may arise about the rules of the game.

So today, we have prepared a content with everything you should know about second time around wedding rings.


Second marriage engagement ring etiquette

First of all, it is important to understand that a second marriage deserves all the adventure and excitement (or even more) than the first one. Planning the wedding and choosing a good ring should be just as you and your partner decide.

Over time, the old traditions having to do with marriage have become much more flexible and when it comes to a second wedding band, there really are no labels separating it from a first.

Although this time, you and your new partner are likely to be more mature, experienced, financially secure and better able to recognize your own tastes.
Understanding that there are no rules written in stone, it may be appropriate to keep in mind that:


In terms of investment:

A 2nd marriage wedding rings is usually above the value of the first one. It is understandable, with a little more stable adult life and years of experience, the perception of a valuable jewel changes.


As for the design:

It can become frowned upon if your engagement ring is styled identically or very similarly to your previous proposals that remind you of old relationships.

This time, you have the opportunity to challenge the preconceived ideas of engagement and take a gamble to suit your tastes or those of your special someone.


As for your other rings:

Don't wear or carry your rings from other relationships into your current one.

A new marriage is a new beginning and while your experiences will always remain in your heart, your current partner may not be comfortable sharing someone else's space or symbol.


What makes an engagement ring for second marriages better?

The wonderful thing about getting a 2nd wife ring is that you are probably both mature enough to talk freely about tastes and expectations in a potential engagement.

If you don't feel attached to the imposition of a diamond, don't be afraid to choose a beautiful colored gemstone. If classic designs are not your style, explore vintage alternatives.

Remember that a beautiful engagement ring is a timeless and intimate piece of jewelry that its wearer will have for a long time, so the main guideline has to be personal taste.


Who pays for a second marriage rings?

Nowadays, all these old gender roles about who should and who should not pay for certain things in a relationship or in a potential engagement are becoming more and more obsolete.

Normally, if a mature couple in their second marriage embarks on the acquisition of a new ring, it is common for both to be somewhat involved in assuming the investment. This, moreover, can be seen as a symbolic gesture: the first valuable joint acquisition in the relationship.

Not only does this allow the freedom to acquire a truly dazzling piece of high quality, but it also gives free rein to the imagination, giving greater scope in terms of possible designs.


How should it be delivered?

There is no limitation on a second proposal or a second wedding ring. Assuming you have decided to keep it a secret to prepare a big surprise (good for you for going big) you now have enough experience to prepare a great presentation.

Focus on your partner's particular tastes and plan a romantic proposal. Don't skimp on your efforts to surprise someone you really love just for the sake of a black-tie supposition.

Surprises are always welcome. Of course, you must first make sure that you have completely dissolved all traces of your old relationships or past engagements.


Unique engagement rings for second marriage

In short, a second marriage is the perfect opportunity to start over, but with more tools now that you know what you want and what you don't want in your new relationship.

Use that to choose a new ring, a new wedding, a new life that will make you and your partner truly happy.

There aren't many protocols that can be imposed on you regarding how you should make your new commitment, beyond what you feel is right. If you need some examples to inspire you, here are some popular proposals among our clients:


Rings with colored stones:

The use of gemstones such as sapphires, rubies or emeralds, either as a center stone or as accents, is quite common in 2nd engagement. These stones can represent new beginnings, renewed passions or specific qualities that the couple values in their relationship.

You can look at this beautiful ring with a 13.01 carat central Colombian Emerald as an example. A worthy candidate in the category of second marriage engagement rings.


Vintage styles reinvented:

Modern adaptations of classic designs, such as Art Deco or Edwardian, with a contemporary twist. These rings fuse the elegance of the past with the freshness of the present, ideal for couples who appreciate history, but look to the future.

Here's a Ring 18kt Gold GIA Square Yellow Diamond & Pave from our engagement ring collection that can perfectly embody this style, with modern elegance.


Wide bands with details:

More substantial rings that offer a wider canvas for creative expression. They may include intricate engravings, interesting textures or inlays of small diamonds in unique patterns.

You can give this stunning 14kt Gold Oval Green Tourmaline & Diamonds Split Shank Triple Band 14kt Gold Oval Ring a look that will leave anyone speechless.


Minimalist Designs:

Clean and simple styles emphasize the clarity of renewed commitment, a concept you'd surely want in a 2nd wedding band. These rings can stand out for their subtle elegance and focus on quality materials and craftsmanship.

As an example, this subtle diamond eternity band with 14 karat gold stands out, minimalist, modest and very appropriate as 2nd marriage wedding rings.


Alternative color diamond:

Fancy diamonds can become even more rare and valued than white diamonds under certain quality conditions. An ingenious way, no doubt, to represent how special it is to find love outside of the established "traditional" course.

You can see this beautiful 18kt White Gold Fancy Brown Diamond & 60 Brilliant Diamonds Ring as an example.


2nd marriage engagement rings with alternative bands:

Playing with bands on the engagement ring can be an interesting nod to the fact that sometimes in life and in love, paths are not always linear and setback-free, but that sooner or later love eventually wins out over all else.

You can look at this Platinum Ruby GIA & Diamonds Ring as an example of this idea.
