Should I Sell My Wedding Ring?

Posted By Center for Mediated Divorce || 14-Mar-2017

Divorces can often be hard to cope with, particularly if one partner isn’t expecting it. Things that used to bring you comfort can now be a source of immense pain. Wedding rings are exchanged during a ceremony as a symbol of unity and eternity, so after divorce proceedings, people often wonder what to do with the pieces of metal they carried with them every day.

If you haven’t thrown your ring into the gutter or a river out of rage or despair, you might consider selling it. Divorce can often be extremely expensive. If you’re ready to let go, and you don’t want to keep a symbolic reminder around, sell the ring for a small profit. You can use the profits to go on vacation, buy yourself a gift symbolizing starting a new life, or pay off a debt.

There are many reputable places to sell jewelry. Yelping a nearby jeweler can tell you whether or not they have a good track record. You can also sell your engagement and wedding rings on eBay or Etsy. If you decide to sell, there are certain diamond specialists who also help divorcees sell their rings. You also shouldn’t have to pay for these services. Go to a seller who will pay you quickly while giving you the best return. Companies accredited by the Better Business Bureau (BBB) will also offer you better service.

If you don’t want to sell, you can also save the ring for your child or donate the proceeds to charity. Whatever your decision, make sure it’s the right one. Take time to think about what you really want to do and what you want to get out of it.
