I’d like to hear if there are any bees out there that sold their engagement ring (while still married/together). What’s your story?
My husband and I decided to sell our engagement ring a few months ago. It was a rough time in our lives and the money was something that I felt we needed. We never bothered to buy a wedding band, since we were married in the JOP and shrugged it as an unecessary expense at the time. I’m currently wearing a garnet ring that he gave me for my birthday, but that’s about all I’ve got. Would it bad for me to want or ask for an anniversary ring to, well, somewhat replace what was lost?
Money is better now, but not the best it could be. I’m just wondering what other bees have done in a situation like this, or any tips or advice you could give.

Ive never been in this exact situation but I think it was very noble of you to sell your ring to help out..if money is better now then I dont see why you shouldnt talk to your hubby about getting an anniversary ring..you said money is better but not as good as it could be, so maybe you could come up with reasonable budget before presenting the idea to him..I think you definitely deserve it!

I havent been in this situation, and honestly I dont think I could give up my engagement ring unless it was like, give it up or be on the street situation, so kudos to you OP for being strong and doing what you both felt you needed to do.
If you are in a better situation money wise now, I dont think it would be outrageous to want a wedding band or something to wear in place of the ring that you lost. Theres nothing saying you have to be extravagant. You could get something in white sapphire or moissanite or silver instead of gold to cut down on costs.
