That’s a gorgeous setting! I actually LOVE it. If we were still shopping, I’d email that pic to my fiance. 🙂

I would try posting it in the classifieds.

Try a jeweler or a pawn shop.


Also, you’re going to have to lower that price.  It’s a used empty setting.  With the stone in you *maybe* would have gotten $1500–without the stone I’d probably aim more for the $500 range.  Diamond rings are like cars–the moment you drive them off the lot, the resale value drops 50% or more.  I could get that same setting new for not a lot more than $1500–why would I buy it used for that price?  People who are willing to buy used need a good deal.  That setting for $1500 is not a good deal.

@mweiler:  It seems like you are looking for honest feedback…the setting is BEAUTIFUL. However…I think you have overpriced it.  I looked at an identical setting in 18KT white gold at our jeweller and it was 1200 brand new (with similar quality stones). You will likely have a hard time selling it, used, at that price.

I agree with others that you’ll need to lower the price.  My 14 kt wedding band has four diamonds (1 tcw) and I paid $1,100 for it.

it’s a lovely, classic setting but honestly, if you want to sell it, you need to be more realistic with your asking price.  i would suggest max $500.

the other option is to take it to a jeweller and put it towards your fi’s band or another piece of jewellery.
