@chachaD:  I can see where he’s coming from, and would respect his wishes… I would be upset if my SO still wore something from an ex. The stone shouldn’t mean anything to you…what you should do is sell it, and use the $$ to buy a brand new set of earrings 🙂

I can understand where he is coming from. Every time he looks at them, he is going to think about where it came from. Objects have memories attached to them, no matter how much you change them, Why don’t you sell it and let someone else take joy out of it (and then it is recycled still!)

I think it’s just jewelry might as well find a use for it. I mean you could always sellit but i don’t know if you’dget what is worth.

I woulsashay respect his wishes, take the diamond to a reputable jeweler to sell or trade for diamond earrings.. Make up the difference in cash. New stones, the earrings you want, no emotional attachment to ex: everyone wins!

just saw the comment about a wanting something from that time in your life to remember…. And I understand, but I also think that your current fiance’s feelings are more than validated by that sentiment of yours. If you want to have something, keep it in a drawer. If you want to wear something, it can’t be jewelry from your ex.

I wouldn’t. I would sell it.

I don’t like to keep anything with bad associations to me or to my Fiance. Your Fiance has bad associations with this diamond, so I say get rid of it. His feelings count more than a silly stone.
