    I would buy another diamond the same size and make diamond stud earrings 🙂 You could probably get a ring or something of very close to the same size at a pawn shop for cheap!

    if your looking to get good money for your diamond…its not gonna happen. diamonds dont have good resale value. but if you just want to get rid of the darn thing…then sell the thing. either way, diamonds are not worth what jewelers say they are.

    My mom gave me hers from her marraige with my dad to be honest I didn’t want it because it just reminded me of how little he valued his relationship with her. I say give it back to him.

    I would say keep it for your child. My fiance came from divorced parents and it ment a lot to him to get his moms engagement ring and wedding bands even though his parents are long divorced. A child came out of that relationship, and it is still a symbol of the love you once had for each other. Also, it may not have the same meaning for you that it has for your child, for you it might be a sad reminder of a failed relationship, but to your child it may be a symbol of the love that created him.

    not a good market to sell, i think you should keep it and give it to your son, he may like to have it one day!
