Things didn’t turn out as i expected and now after a year and half we are getting a divorce. I have all three rings, mine and his. Its platinum . Does anyone know where i can go to sell it besides a pawn shop. I know they pay so little so i’m looking around to see what options are there. I do not want to do craigslist or ebay as we paid around 10k and do not want to get robbed trying to meet a random person or to get someone to scam me on ebay.I would be happy with just half back. It was custom made. I already made an inquiry to the store we bought to see if i can exchange it for something like a right hand ring.
If you are in the DC area where did you take your rings, though i hope many have not gone through this before, as its not an easy thing .

@fuentesbee: there’s a jeweler on the corner of connecticut and L that has a sign in the window that says ‘we buy diamonds’. i dont know about platinum, but you could always ask.

Dominion Jewelers buys estate pieces, so they might buy them. You might also check Quinn’s Goldsmith in Woodbridge or Occoquan to see if they would buy the stones.

I’m sorry that it didn’t work out between you two. There’s a website called IdonowIdont or something like that. People can choose their own prices for the rings so you can make sure you’re letting go at a price that you feel comfortable with. Might be a good option.

You should also consider DiamondBistro.com or the Pricescope.com’s pre-loved section.

@MrsLongcoatPeacoat: We bought our rings from there. I already sent an email to the rep that sold us the rings to see my options. Thanks

What about using the metal and stones and making it into something else ?? A RHR, necklace, earrings ?? Just hold onto them when it is a little easier to think about and deal with. If you still want to sell then, ok, if not make them into something new.

Sorry to hear about your divorce. I’ve been there and it’s not easy.
In answer to your question, there’s a lot of people selling used jewelry on ebay. You can set a reserve price so any bidding below where you’d want to part with it for wouldn’t be a promise to sell.
Hope that helps.

I am also sorry to hear about your divorce. I remember a bee buying a beautiful ring on idonowidon’t.com. Sending hugs your way!

I’m sorry to hear about your divorce. I can’t begin to imagine.
You mentioned that you’ve been married for a year and a half, but in one of your posts several months ago you still had a few weeks prior to the wedding. Did you get married earlier, and just have the wedding afterwards?

I am very, very sorry about your divorce.
I have used Tysons Watch and Jewelry Exchange across from Tysons Corner. They are honest and you leave with cash.
But, you will not get a good price at any place that I am aware of even at Tysons, although they will probably offer you a better price than most other places.
I have purchased 3 rings off EBay and with it being the holiday season this might be a good time to try and sell on EBay …
On EBay, you stand a chance of getting a better price.
You will be extremely lucky to get 1/2 of appraised value.
