Best Place To Sell Wedding Ring

Posted on

Deonise 9 years ago Wedding: June 2008 It’s definitely going to be tough for you to get a decent value for the ring. One of my Co-workers had to deal with selling a ring (he caught his fiancé cheating on him… ouch!), and he was able to go back to the jewelry store where he bought the ring and negotiated a deal where they would try to sell the ring, and if they did he would just have to pay them a minor selling fee (commission) and if it didn’t sell they would just return it to him. He called them every couple of months to check if they had sold the ring, no dice. After a year of it sitting in the jewelry store he decided to take it back and try to sell it in the local classifieds and on Craigslist. He got some offers but no where close to even half of what he paid for it. (it was an expensive ring, almost a 2ct diamond) . He decided to keep the ring for the time being, maybe when he meets the right girl he will melt it down and redesign a new ring although he’s a little concerned about the karma around the ring now. Good luck with the ring. I hope you have better luck. Reply

The main diamond in my engagement ring was given to my husband by his mother to make into a new ring when we got engaged. My in-laws had a nasty divorce and a terrible marriage. Before we got engaged, my now husband asked me “do you think that a diamond ring from a divorced couple is cursed?” I thought about it briefly and said “not if the diamond is made into a new ring.” I knew where the question came from and that the diamond had already been taken out of the ring (the gold was melted down and made into something new). I also knew it was a nice diamond (and yes, nicer than anything he could afford on his own). When I look at my beautiful platinum ring (I’ve had the ring for 18 years), I do not feel any bad karma. I know the history of that diamond, from when my MIL’s MIL bought it for her son’s engagement (a whole other twisted story), to my MIL making new jewelry out her ring – a pin with the big diamond, and a necklace with smaller diamond accents. She offered the diamond to my husband even before we started dating, and happily took it out of the pin to hand it down to the next generation. It makes her happy to see it on me.I totally understand why you sold your jewelry, Emma, and it sounds like it was the right thing for you to do. For my MIL, who still has bad feelings about her ex-husband/marriage 25 years later (she’s happily remarried) the right decision was to melt down the ring and reuse the parts separately. There’s no universal right answer, only individual ones. This was a great topic for your post and I’m enjoying the other responses.

Im struggling with what to do with my ring… I married at age 30 to a man far too fast, not a bad guy, but NOT my guy. He gave me a fake silver ring to propose with telling me it was a family heirloom, and I wore it for a while until the stones started to pop out. This wasnt a big deal to me, because I planned to design my own ring eventually (Did I mention that I am a jewelry designer specializing in engagement rings?!)…. anyhow, come to find out after our elopement that not only was the ring not a famiily heirloom, that he had bought it and proposed to his ex girlfriend with it…. she never wore it, but it was tainted.So now there were lies attached to the damn thing! I pushed myself to finally figure out the ring I wanted, and let me tell you, it is BEAUTIFUL…. Platinum, diamonds all over, looks truly vintage, huge gorgeous center stone…. I put SO MUCH WORK AND THOUGHT into my design, and I myself designed every line of the ring….Fast forward to now… needless to say I got tired of lies in my marriage, and now my divorce is pending and I am dating someone new. Is it time to unload the thing? I am “in the biz” so I can sell it pretty competitively and make some cash, but I do still LOVE the look of the damn thing! I would wear it on my right hand and love it because its MY DESIGN but I think my new BF would be hurt or uncomfortable, yet I dont want to make the decision to sell it because of pressure to please him… or maybe I do…? Help!

smartl 9 years ago Wedding: August 2008 Okay, this is not to be stupid I guess, but I’ve never sold anything on eBay before. So how do I avoid getting completely lowballed and having to sell the ring for more of a loss than we’re willing to accept? Do you just put up a minimum bid amount or something? I don’t want to list it and only get one bid and then have to sell it for less than we want to sell it for. Craigslist might not be a bad idea! We could always turn down offers through there that were too low. Thanks for your support as well ladies. I’ve had a couple of weeks to wrap my head around it now so I’m doing fine now actually. Just wanted to ask about some of the lingering wedding-related stuff we have to figure out

jessica1979 1 year ago Wedding: November 2015 I had an old engagement ring from a previous marriage that both myself and my soon to be husband wanted to get rid of and get some type of money for. However, I am sure as everybody on here knows, the resale value on engagement rings when you take them to pawn shops or jewelry stores is not good at all. I do live in Dallas, and I found this place called Diamond Exchange that offers a consignement program. Since we were not in any hurry, we left there ring with them after talking to them. I wouldnt have just left my ring without any money to anyone, but these guys obviously new what they were doing plus a friend of mine had done the same thing. So, in my opinion, trying to sell your ring on craigslist can be dangerous, plus you have to deal with all kinds of weirdos. Reply
