    only one of my exes gave me jewelry, and I still keep the ring and necklace set. no I do not associate my feelings for him with the jewelry. we’re still great friends and talk relatively often.

    I keep the jewelry I like, donate the cheapy jewelry I don’t like and hold onto any valuable jewelry in case I ever want to sell it.

    I don’t necessarily think of the ex when I wear it but a lot of jewelry does have feelings attached to it.  Not really romantic feelings but more like happy feelings from whatever occassion it was given on.

    I have kept every piece of jewelry anyone (including ex’s) have given me.  Sometimes I put it on and think of the time/place they gave it to me. I don’t miss them or long for that time again, but I think about it and smile because it’s a part of my life, and, when all put together, it made me who I am today.

    I lost it. Lol. I don’t know where it could be..I might have thrown it out or something, if it was something crappy. I think I got one diamond ring from and ex and I lost it. Whoops.

    They were all too cheap to sell so I threw em away. One breakup was pretty bad so I threw the ring in the street. It had turned green anyway, lol.

    Oh man. I wish I could find one necklace my ex gave me, the receipt he forgot in the bag said it was $200. I bet I could turn that in and put it toward a new piece of jewelry. Dang. 

    Anyway, I would keep jewelry if I like it even if it was from an ex. Half of my wardrobe reminds me of my ex, but not in a fond sort of way, just an, “Oh this shirt is clean. Oh, so-and-so gave me it. Oh well, it’s my only clean shirt left. On it goes!” sort of way mixed with “I seriously need to clean out my closet it’s been 4 damn years” sort of feeling. Hahaha.

    Mine is all at my parents house. I like it too much to throw it out and I’m too sentimental to wear it without thinking about who gave it to me. That relationship ended badly so I can’t wear it without thinking about how bad it ended and how wrong he was for me.

    I try to give stuff back when I break up. If I can’t or they don’t want it, I’ll sell it and usually buy a different piece. Things like that do remind me of the ex.

    @KateByDesign:  I’ve only gotten money in the past but that website sounds awesome so I’d go with that.

    I generally don’t keep it, but I have some exceptions. An asshole ex of mine bought me tons of Melinda Maria jewelry, and I love it. I can’t bring myself to throw it out, and I wear it all the time. Fi doesn’t care, thankfully. He has shirts from his ex wife that he wears. It’s just stuff, haha.
