Woman Who ‘Upgraded’ Her Engagement Ring Publicly Fires Back at Critics, Says She’s Not a ‘Spoiled B—-’

“Before you paint me as this pretentious diamond digger, lemme school you.”

Sarah Hosseini, a 31-year-old writer based in Atlanta, penned a lengthy retort on fashion website XO Jane against those who believe that engagement rings shouldn’t be “upgraded,” saying she’s not a “spoiled b—-” because she did.

Her reason for doing so was simple enough – she just didn’t like her diamond princess cut and thus left it sitting in her jewelry box for years. Her sentiment goes like this:

“If a woman does in fact upgrade her ring — say, with bigger, better diamond, — why do we care? Why do married woman chime in and feel the need to say I could never upgrade my ring as if upgrading your ring is the equivalent of some serious marital and moral offense. Why do we assume an engagement ring upgrader is an ungrateful b—-? Or a "material girl?"

Why do judgmental people say something deeper must be going on in the marriage if a woman feels the need to get a new ring. If a gal wants new bling, she should get new bling. It’s not that serious y’all. As much as many women would probably like to hold onto their old engagement rings when they upgrade, they probably financially can’t. Or many women, like me, can’t fathom having a ring that simply sits in a box unused (unless it’s great-granny’s heirloom, vintage ring).”

She later admits to her husband being “visibly crushed at first” as “he felt the trade was a personal affront to the so-called sentiment of the original ring. But, he shortly came around to the idea.”

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
