@vpaine:  If you have no attachment to it, you could sell it for the value of the gold (and possibly also the diamond) and apply the money toward your own wedding bands.

You could melt it down and have it made into a ring that better suits your fiancé’s tastes.

Sell it and use the profits to buy your wedding bands?

I was given my moms ering from my dad, it was a cluster ring and I used the diamonds in my wedding band.  I say sell or melt it into something you can use.

I like the idea of melting it down and making a new ring with that gold.  In spite of the divorce, this ring still has a history of love behind it, it seems like it would be a shame to sell it.

Bring it to a jewelry store & sell it.
