Maybe try a jeweler?  That is so sad for her!  She is lucky to have a friend like you.

I’m sorry this happened!  I think this thread (http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/used-e-ring) talked about this website called IdonowIdont.com where you may be able to list the ring.  But I also second Miss Olive’s suggestion to go to a jeweler.  I’m sorry I can’t  be of more help!

Pawn shops are a total scam. I was hard up for cash a few months back and tried to sell my vintage Cartier gold tank watch and they offered me $50 for it. FIFTY. DOLLARS.

Uh, yeah. No thanks.

I would try a jeweler or pricescope.com which has a forum for selling jewelry.

There’s a website called exboyfriendjewelry.com (google it, that’s not a link) just for such an occasion. I don’t know if yhe will have much luck but at least it’s a forum for selling rings and such.

Definitely a local jeweler. They will give her a fair price and be able to resell the diamond to someone else in a different setting. That is terrible for her – I hope that in the long run it turns out to be a good thing and she finds a much better guy.

I’m very sorry for your friend’s loss and am sure that she is going through a hard time. One thing I’m concerned about is that usually after an engagement ends the ring is supposed to be property of the giver. Its a gift given with a contingency of getting married and if the marriage falls thru it is supposed to go back to the original owner. Don’t get me wrong I’m all for her selling it (and don’t want to seem anti her in her time of need) but I just think if he finds out she sold it she might end up with more grief than its worth.

I was just going to say the same thing as above.  Even if her ex-fiance has told her she can keep the ring, you’re going to want to get that in WRITING.  I would hate for her to be dumped AND sued for the full cost of the ring.

If it was given on a holiday (Valentine’s Day, Christmas, New Years, etc) then it’s hers. If not, it’s legally his if he paid for it. That is unless he signs it over to her to sell.

Check into your state’s laws. In MN it is a conditional gift (as previously stated) but in WI it may be a different story. I was trying to get hubs to sue his ex fiance for the ring he bought for her. Only because he was thinking about it and deep down it makes me CRINGE that someone who pulled the crap she did to him, is still wearing that ring. Anyway…just check your state’s laws.
