Hello again ladies!
I’ve posted a question about how many proposal you have ever received and that has made me wonder this question.
I received 7 proposals from 7 different guys (WHAT?! I KNOW!) with 7 different rings!
Only 2 guys were happy to take back the ring! 1 of them I am wearing!!!!! LOL The other 4 didn’t want their rings back and asked me to keep it.
SO~ I’ve got 4 engagement rings sitting in my jewlery box. (A tiffany cut, 2 cushion, and a round halo) I don’t know what to do with them!!! LOL
What did you ladies do or are going to do with your e-rings from your ex(s)?

I sold mine and paid for my lawyer for my divorce. Well, part of it.
Post # 4
Gave mine back to him, especially since I broke it off. Sell those rings girl!

agreed, sell those rings! you need to get all that negitive karma away from you asap… i didn’t believe it either, but its true. Just get rid of them.
Sell them if you can (I sold mine on craigslist when I was still in the states and got a decent price for it)
If you can’t sell them consider sending them in to a place like greenkarat or somewhere that will recycle them in to something new and shiny. why have 4 e-rings you don’t where when you can have one really awesome necklace?

I offered to give the first back, he told me to keep it. I later traded it in for a different piece of jewlery. (this was more of a promise ring, but close enough)
The second would be from my ex husband. He paid for part of it and I paid for part of it, in the divorce we agreed that he would buy it back from me (so he gave me then about 75% of what I paid for it). I verified that he wanted to buy it back from me and he did. He didn’t ask so I didn’t tell him that I had already asked a few jewelry places what they would pay for it and it was only about 25% of what we paid for it, total. Platinum setting that was expensive tobuy was worthless to sell. I did tell him that 100% of the value of the ring would be honored for *trade in* (which is true).
You could trade in your rings to buy your wedding band, his wedding band, your wedding jewelry, and a cool right hand ring.

Oooh I didn’t think of trading! Sounds good LOL
Maybe I can sell them~ I wasn’t sure how to go about it.
Ebay? Jewelry store? Any suggestions on where to sell them? 😀
2 of them are 2.23 carat and the one of them 1.75 I think… the last one is exactly 2 carat….

I have one that I tried to sell years ago in the city newspaper, but no one even looked at it. I just have it in a drawer in the box now, I considered having it reset. My ex seemed amazing when I was first with him, but he turned out to be a total fraud, drug abuser, crazy person. I was young, hopeful and nieve at the time. I ended up paying for the majority of the ring myself once I found out he had gotten it on credit, so I consider it to be a token of my independence and overcoming a terrible situation. If I just saw the diamonds as a token reminder of him, they would be gone. I just don’t look at it that way!

@floridagirlblue: Wow you’re amazing!!! You should def get it reset. Maybe into a necklace (like a medallion) 🙂 You should wear it proud~!
Personally looking at them doesn’t disturb me…since they’ve been around a while. With the first few I felt bad selling them..but now I don’t feel any emotions over them at all. Just trying to figure out the best way to deal with them in a physical and financial form… lol

My ex Cheated. I left that night and sold the ering on ebay the next day, and emailed him the winning bid notice.
I’m not nice.

Well, if they don’t want the rings back then you could always give them away to a very nice bee who likes pretty sparkly things….
