Selling an engagement ring


BM1874

Recommended Posts

Anyone had the “privilege”?

split with the ex, and have the ring, went to a couple of pawnbrokers (ramsdens etc) who quoted silly Low fee but both advised going private. 
 

any pointers towards exactly where to go would be great. 
not looking for a fortune but enough to recoup some of the fee

 

thanks in advance

Keep it untill you need it again, find an old box (not that kind!) and tell the new lass it was your Granny's, save yourself a few quid.

Can you not just take it back to the shop you got it and explain the situation? Take 70% for what you paid for it or something. 

Or is that a crazy idea 🤷‍♀️

 

Mind you, it'll probably be shut won't it.

It was bought 6 years ago. So doubt it’s an option but appreciate the idea

An independent jeweller must be the best place for such things? When I say must what I mean is, that would be my best guess.

Appreciate that, will look into it

I think @kearney19 had a thread on here years ago about selling his ring :naughty:

 

He might be able to assist with advice. 

That’s exactly why I chose my words carefully 😂

Melt it down and sell the diamond and gold separately. 🤷

That was my thought too, sell off the parts individually.

Is it a decent ring or an Elizabeth Duke jobby with a bit shattered glass in it?

 

We have to get my wife's engagement ring valued every 5 years for insurance purposes and it had doubled in value the last time round at 7 years old or so.

 

Edit: meant to add, you might be quids in.

Ring was accepted 6 years ago, we split up, I got it back after and don’t want it or the memories associated with it but wouldn’t mind recouping some of the outlay back

That thread ought to be in the classics.
