    If you decide to sell it, I would do it on DiamondBistro.com – it will sell really quickly at the right price!

    @SecondTimeRound2014:  You have a great shot at selling it for a good price on ebay. 

    There are only 272 three stone moissanite rings for Buy it Now, right now. That may sound like a lot, but there are 542,500+ diamond three stone rings, so taht shows you how “rare” moissanite is on ebay to this day. They sell well. There aren’t as many to choose from. Sell it for Buy it Now, NOT AN AUCTION! Auctions never get you as much as Buy it Now (I learned that the hard way).  

    Here are the 3 stone moissanite rings for sale on Buy it Now.

    http://www.ebay.com/sch/Engagement-Wedding-/91427/i.html?LH_BIN=1&_from=R40&_nkw=moissanite&_dcat=92868&Style=Three%252DStone&rt=nc

    Here are the sold listings. These are the 3 stone, moissanite rings that have sold.

    Based on all this info I would list it for $399. This very similar ring recently sold for $389.

    @SecondTimeRound2014:  I am also getting a 1.25 ct moissanite! I am trying to decide between the round or OEC. There are lots of round moissanite of that size for around $350. The OEC is more, as is the enhanced moissanite. So, you could sell that ring and pay for your new stone! Good deal. Let us know if you sell it and what you get for it. I think you could get $399, for sure. It’s a very pretty ring.

    I think you should post it on craigslist, ebay, diamondbistro.com, and the classifieds on this site. You should sell it in time. It is worth it to get it appraised so you have a certificate to show people. people are very wary of buying jewelry based on what someone claims it is, and rightfully so.

    @SecondTimeRound2014:  To be totally honest, I’m not sure you will get much of it. If you like it enough to keep it around, I’d do that. Smaller moissanite rings don’t fetch much on the second hand market from what I’ve seen.

    @Kat:  If you look at the link I provided, they do sell. One just sold for $389 on ebay. 

    I think i will buy the OEC and the round stones to see which I like more. My only hang up with the OEC is how you can see a point where all the lines converge and a small circle if you look through the top of the stone. You know what I mean? It seems pronounced in pictures. I’m hoping it’s more subtle in real life.

    @SecondTimeRound2014:  Keep it, and when one of your kids (if you have kids from that marriage, especially) wants to get married, or has a significant life event, they can use that ring, or recycle the gold and stones.

    @Duncan:  Or sell it and invest the money for your kids’ education, or something or other.

    @bunnyharriet:  Yep, I know what you mean. It’s called a culet. Most antique stone lovers love culets, like myself, however my OEC has a very small culet that nobody can see unless I point it out. All the batched of stones culet sizes vary tho.
