How To Upgrade Your Diamond Jewelry

Thinking of upgrading your jewelry but aren’t sure what to do? Here are some of the best ways to upgrade your diamond engagement ring, diamond studs, and other diamond jewelry.

Diamond Upgrade: Go Bigger

One of the most common ways to upgrade diamond jewelry is to go bigger. And if you have a piece you love, but you want a little more glamour, opting for a larger center stone with a higher carat weight is perfect for you. At DiamondStuds.com, you can use our Lifetime Upgrade Program to amp up the size of your diamond engagement ring, your diamond studs, and more.

Diamond Upgrade: Go Higher Quality

Going bigger isn’t the only way to upgrade a center diamond– you can also go up in quality.  People often choose to upgrade the quality of their center stones later in life, since they may have selected lower quality diamonds or gemstones when they were younger and had a more limited budget. Choosing to go up in clarity grade, color grade, or cut grade can make a big difference in the beauty and sparkle of your diamond jewelry, so it’s a wonderful option if you’re thinking of upgrading.

Change Your Diamond Shape

Another way you can upgrade diamond jewelry is to switch up your diamond shape. If you love your setting but are looking for a change, selecting a different center stone shape is a great way to refresh an old piece and make it feel completely new. At DiamondStuds.com, we offer a wide variety of diamond shapes for you to choose from for your upgrade. Browse our selection of GIA and EGL USA certified round cut, princess cut, cushion cut, asscher cut, emerald cut, marquise cut, oval shaped, and pear shaped diamonds and find the new diamond shape that’s perfect for you.

Choose a Setting With More Diamonds

Switching up your jewelry setting can drastically change its style, giving your jewelry an exciting refresh. And, as an added bonus, choosing a setting that’s adorned with more diamonds can also give the impression that your jewelry is larger, even if you don’t upgrade your center stone. Halo settings and diamond side stones can make a diamond piece look larger, since our eyes perceive more brilliant jewelry as larger. So switching up your setting can both refresh your piece’s style and help you amp up your jewelry’s visual impact.

Change Your Precious Metal


Are you tired of your jewelry’s precious metal? Give it a whole new life by selecting a new precious metal for your new upgraded piece. You can go for classic yellow gold, elegant white gold, romantic rose gold, or luxe platinum. 

Get an Entirely New Piece

If you no longer enjoy wearing your jewelry, consider selecting a brand new piece in an entirely different category. One of the best things about the DiamondStuds.com Lifetime Upgrade Program is your ability to select any type of jewelry for your upgraded piece. So if you have, for example, a solitaire diamond ring that you no longer love, you can decide to select a pair of diamond studs instead when you upgrade. The choice is yours when you shop at DiamondStuds.com.
