What To Do With Your Old Engagement Ring

Posted on January 16th, 2020 by Joe G

Choosing what to do with your old engagement ring can be an emotional process. After all, even if you divorced or called off the engagement, there was a point at which that engagement ring brought you immeasurable joy.
But putting the emotion aside; depending on your situation, your options will vary. For example, if you’ve gotten divorced and there’s a stipulation in your court order about what to do with the ring, you’ve got to follow that court order. However, in most cases after the divorce, the ring and other jewelry have most likely been awarded to the agreed owner. As diamond buyers in Chicago, we’re familiar with the options, so we’ll outline them for you here.

Sell it to a Diamond Buyer in Chicago

Once you decide not to keep your old engagement ring, you could also sell it to use the money for other reasons like pay off credit cards, pay tuitions, house payments, vacation etc. Depending on the quality and condition of the diamond, you may be able to get a reasonably significant sum of money for your ring. Just make sure you’re working with a reputable diamond buyer in Chicago with years of established experience so you will get the most for your valuables.
The options are completely viable if you just want money for anything else you find important or in some cases just to get rid of memories that you want to forget. It may even help you move on to another phase of your life to let go of your old engagement ring. You will know when you are ready, and when you are the diamond buyers in Chicago at Chicago Gold Gallery will be there to help with whatever you decide.

Customer Testimonial

Had a Great Experience

I have dealt in coins and metals since the 80s. Had dealings with many dealers. Got scammed by a few. Chicago Gold is the only one I would recommend to my family or friends. Have your valuables appraised by them before you sell.

I'll be back

Cashed in some silver coins and received a very fair exchange. Joe and Chris, were very friendly, and comfortable to deal with. Came back with some jewelry, and received a rough appraisal...again no pressure.
