Platinum has been selling very well on ebay, you’d get at least $300 for it there (probably more like $500).  Don’t go too low on your price, you may have to relist it a few times but someone will eventually buy it.   Or you could try DiamondBistro?

@luvmesumhim:  i had some jewellery from exes that i sold on kijiji (it’s like craigslist).  i had a lot of it and i got some decent results.  of course you are going to get some idiot who will want it for next to nothing.  in that case, i just firmly said no. 

if you think it’s really worth something, i would suggest getting an appraisal done.  with that, it should sell for more and without questions or doubt.  there is always additional value when you include the appraisal with the item.

i was pleased overall.

@luvmesumhim:  Do you have any daughters? I wear my mom’s old wedding band as a RHR and love it. To her it’s a symbol of her failed marriage – To me, it’s a symbol of the union that made my life possible.

@MissElizabeth:  +1.

I have my mothers old wedding ring set, It’s much too small for me [size 5], but I used to wear them on a necklace. Now they sit in my jewelry box, but I wouldn’t dare get rid of them.

@luvmesumhim:  Sell it and give the money to a woman’s charity, that’s what I’d do anyway.

BridieBea what a lovely idea!

I suggest Etsy, we bought both my e-ring and band from Etsy.

Have you tried posting it for sale on the Classifieds here on Weddingbee?  There might be someone here who’s interested. One advantage of selling it here is we understand the outrageous mark-up, but yet we also understand wanting to get something back… We’re also always looking for a good deal.
