Part of moving on is letting go. Now, it can be hard to let go of your wedding ring. Especially when you learn that the resale value for wedding jewelry is a very small fraction of the price you originally paid for it. But what else are you doing with it? Maybe you’re wearing it on a chain around your neck, which is fine, if you’re 12. But most likely, it’s just sitting there, in a box or a drawer, waiting to remind you of things you’d rather not remember. So get rid of it. And do not throw it into the sea as some symbolic gesture. That’s dumb. And littering. And it will probably kill a dolphin. So if you want that on your conscience, please, by all means, litter away!
Look at it this way. If you sell it, here are just some of the great things you can do with that sweet, sweet ring money. For rings of every budget!
