    I know a couple of women who purchased meaningful jewelry for themselves after their divorces.  They could afford it, it made them feel happy in the middle of a really rough time, and it meant something special to them.

    I thought it was a neat idea.  I like the sentiment behind the ring you’re envisioning.  I say go for it!

    @sportsgal31:  This!

    I’m not a religious person, but if it means something to you, and it might help you get through this time? Do it. 

    I love this one from Kay:

     

    One band for you, one for God.

    If that’s what you want to do and it is important to you, do it. You need to do what makes you stay sane and happy in this difficult time.

    @vorpalette:  I really like that ring and the symbolism you suggested.

    I am not big on sentimental stuff so I am probably not the right person to reply, but if you think you will feel better by having it than go for it.

    @nyscpa2be:  Hate to be cynical, but you need to declare all finances in the divorce. If you buy this ring it might look bad when it comes to talking settlements. Unless you’re talking about something relatively cheap, I would hold off on any major purchases.

    I don’t see anything wrong w. the sentiment itself.. especially if you wear it on a different finger than a wedding ring… but from a practical point of view, it might not look too good when the lawyers become involved. I know this because my SO is currently going thru a long, messy divorce and even the littlest things seem to matter. Ugh.

    *Hugs*

    @nyscpa2be:  Ah ok. Yeah, $300 probably wouldn’t raise any flags.. but anything more might. Good luck! Divorces suck 🙁

    If it means something to you it sounds like a great idea.

    when I got divorced I bought a $3000 tv… Haha  if it makes you feel better, than you should. however, I think that you don’t need the ring.

    Absolutely. Any new idea to be excited about is therapeutic during an awful time like this. And, speaking from one Christian to another, nothing helps as much as finding (or re-finding) God.

    Good idea. Personally I’d call it a purity ring, but you can call it whatever you want! And *hugs* to you, I remember some of your earlier posts.
