I kept all the photos and letters and stuff like that, but I think jewelry is a whole other ball game.  Personally, I’d get rid of those.

I disagree.  I think that letters and photos are much more personal that a bracelet or a pair of earrings.  Keep the jewelry.  they were a gift.  or trade them in if you want and get yourself something new.

I would keep the bling if you like them! Not the same as pictures.

If that jewelry constantly reminds you of the ex then trade them in for something new! if y9u genuinely love the piece of jewelry I say keep it.

keep.  It was a gift.  Don’t necessarily broadcast the fact they they are from your ex though.  My ex was very wealthy and very generous so I have all sorts of jewelry, watches and other expensive things from him that i love.  No way I’m getting rid of any of that.

I have a diamond necklace given to me by an ex about 6 years ago.  I never wear it, but I’ve been saving it planning on eventually giving it to my daughter if I have one.

If you can wear them with no ill feelings, keep them, you’ll never get what they’re worth if you sell them. You can always take the diamonds and make a pendant (and sell the gold). Or, keep to give to a future daughter (only if no ill feelings and again because you’ll never get full value).

I have a pink sapphire ring and pendant from an ex and I kept them because I love jewelry and after we broke up, they were already part of my collection, so it didn’t really mean anything to me anymore.

Does it mean anything to you?

I say keep it.  It’s just jewelry!

Right now I’m wearing a necklace given to me by an ex.  This is the first time I’ve worn it since I’ve been engaged, and I was sitting here trying to remember who had given it to me.  All of a sudden I realized it was from a guy I dated long ago.  I figure if I had to strain to remember who it was from there was essentially no sentimental value attached, and so I feel free to wear this little pearl necklace!

I have two rings, however, from guys who intended them as a promise or engagement ring.  I should get rid of those, since I will never ever wear them!  I tried to give them back at the time, but both guys refused.

I’d say keep it.  If it bothers you to wear them you can have them made into something else…necklace, ring, etc.

I would keep them (they are DIAMONDS after all!) if you love them.  If you don’t really wear them, sell them?

Assuming your FI doesn’t mind of course! 🙂

I keep old jewelry if I still like it (I’ve sold a diamond heart pendant, though). Diamond earrings I would keep if I wanted to wear them.
