My fiance bought this engagement ring for me but then we ended up getting a different one since I didn’t like the wedding band that went with it. This was worn for two months and was very well taken care of. I work at a desk job so there is very little wear on the ring. We had the middle diamond placed in the new ring. It has one tapered baguette on each side and a six prong setting in the middle. The band is 14K white gold. Baguettes measure 3.4 x 2.0 mm and have a total weight of .18ct with an internal clarity of SI1 and H color. Appraised at $6035 WITH middle stone.
PRICE: $1500 o/b/o. Free shipping with complimentary insurance.
I have a picture of the ring below with the middle stone – but please note the middle diamond is not included.
I’ve posted this on the Classifieds section but haven’t gotten any hits. If you ladies have any tips, I’d appreciate it! He has been such a peach about spending the extra money on a new ring! Thanks!!

That’s a gorgeous setting! I actually LOVE it. If we were still shopping, I’d email that pic to my fiance. 🙂

Try a jeweler or a pawn shop.
Also, you’re going to have to lower that price. It’s a used empty setting. With the stone in you *maybe* would have gotten $1500–without the stone I’d probably aim more for the $500 range. Diamond rings are like cars–the moment you drive them off the lot, the resale value drops 50% or more. I could get that same setting new for not a lot more than $1500–why would I buy it used for that price? People who are willing to buy used need a good deal. That setting for $1500 is not a good deal.

@mweiler: It seems like you are looking for honest feedback…the setting is BEAUTIFUL. However…I think you have overpriced it. I looked at an identical setting in 18KT white gold at our jeweller and it was 1200 brand new (with similar quality stones). You will likely have a hard time selling it, used, at that price.

I agree with others that you’ll need to lower the price. My 14 kt wedding band has four diamonds (1 tcw) and I paid $1,100 for it.

it’s a lovely, classic setting but honestly, if you want to sell it, you need to be more realistic with your asking price. i would suggest max $500.
the other option is to take it to a jeweller and put it towards your fi’s band or another piece of jewellery.
