Out With The Old

Category : Break-Up, Engagement Rings, Gifts, Moving On

What do you do with that jewelry your ex gave you back in the day?  The necklace he surprised you with when he was courting you before you both landed in divorce court…that ring you got from him on Valentine’s Day before he broke your heart. When you go into your jewelry collection to find something to wear for a night out on the town, seeing them is probably a reminder of a relationship that you’d like to forget. It does seem a little awkward and sort of depressing to go to a pawn shop.  Or walking into the store of your local trusted jeweler might hit a little too close to home. Well, the website seems to possibly be the answer.  It’s like the ebay for exes who want to part ways with the momentos that mean nothing anymore. You can put up the jewelry that you want to sell from your ex with no hassle or stress. Here’s a description from their website:

Welcome to EXBOYFRIENDJEWELRY.COM – a site where you can buy/sell/trade and blog about all of those little painful reminders in your jewelry box that make you wonder “what did I ever see in him?”  You set your own price.  You get it off your chest and out of your sight.  Just because you don’t want it, doesn’t mean somebody else isn’t dying for it.  Everyone’s a winner!   Maybe you love him, maybe you never want to speak to him again, but either way, you’re ready to move on and make a little rent money in the process (insert “wink” icon here).   Here’s the story, you don’t want it and he can’t have it back (insert another “wink” icon here, and then stop winking, seriously).

So log on today and see what  is all about for yourself.  There’s nothing like letting go of the past (and making a little dough while you’re at it)!

Do You Give Back The Ring?

Category : Break-Up, Engagement Rings


When a couple breaks off an engagement, what happens to the ring?  Does the woman give it back to the guy if she is the one who breaks up with him?  Or, what if he breaks it off with her?  Does she keep the ring out of spite?  What if the ring is his great great great (I’ll stop there) grandmother’s and its been in his family for ions.  Does the woman show compassion and hand it over, or does she hand it to the pawn broker, instead? 

This may be a moral dilemma.  I assume it depends on how they broke up.  If he cheated and was caught, then she may feel entitled to keep the ring.  Or, maybe her giving it back to him is good karma.  I suggest giving the ring to his mother and telling her what he did.  Then, go to the nearest pawn shop together sell it and hit up Neiman Marcus.  Just an idea.  What do you all think?  What would you do with the ring?
