Personally I’d sell it and put the money in savings or put it towards a vacation

I’d sell it. I’m not into heart shaped diamonds.

Sell it! You’d get a lot from someone with a 5ct diamond!! (Can’t believe you’re saying it’s not big ๐Ÿ˜‚) 

I would buy it ๐Ÿ˜…

Vote to keep it and turn it into a pendant, you might get a couple hundred bucks but not much more I’d estimate so why not use it lol diamonds suck for resale

I would probably sell it… or at least sell the heart-shaped diamond.  I might buy a new setting for the baguettes and a new stone (I’ve always wanted a sapphire ring so I’d go that route!)

If you like it I say pendant it up!

I actually bought my own original engagement ring for the engagement with my ex because he couldn’t get me a ring at all so I have 0 problems keeping and resetting it later on. It’s just a small aquamarine so there’s 0 point in trying to sell it might as well use it in something pretty I like so it wasn’t a waste.

It’s very distinct, so if you don’t like it I would either sell it or gift it to someone who might like it (depending on the value).  Check with a different pawn shop just in case.

I would take the “loss” and either give it away or sell it. I would neither want it nor wear it.

Personally I would sell it even if I didn’t get a lot for it I wouldn’t want to wear it. Tue way I see it it was a gift for someone else just get rid of it
