    MsJkk:  I’d keep it as an heirloom. You may have a daughter/grandaughter/neice someday who would love it!

    MsJkk:  It’s not my taste either but i’m sentimental so i’d keep it in a little keepsake box – maybe if you have a daughter one day you can pass it on to her!

    Did it hold special meaning to her? it may be worth offering it back to her (as nicely as possible) rather than sell it, she might be hoping it stays in the family.

    I agree with Bridey77. Keep it! It may not be your style, but you can always pass it down to another female family member.

    It’s a beautiful ring. Of course, I’m biased as my ering has the same illusion box setting

    I’d keep it. It’s a sentimental gift from a family member. She might be upset if she finds out?

    If you don’t love it, I would definitely get it appraised before selling it.

    Give it back to your Aunt if you’re going to sell it.  I’m sure she didn’t think you’d sell an heirloom from her. I’d be pretty pissed if one of my nieces did that.

    It’s beautiful and I would keep it.  But my goodness, your aunt gave you this probably expecting you to keep it and pass it on to someone else to keep it in the family.  IMO, it would be very rude of you to just sell it.

    MsJkk:  I’d definitely keep it. I think things like this should stay in the family. It’s a beautiful family heirloom that you could one day pass down to a daughter, granddaughter, or niece if it doesn’t grow on you.

    HisIrishPrincess:  100% It’s not yours to sell. Even if it was a birthday gift, I highly doubt she would have passed it to you if she knew it would end up on Ebay. If you don’t want it you should give it back to her or another family member.

    It’s pretty, but it’s okay if you don’t love it. If it wasn’t meant to be used as an engagement ring, I don’t see anything wrong with keeping it in a keepsake box and wearing it from time to time.
