Seeing this post makes me wonder what I should do w/my the ring my ex gave me. Long story short, after we broke up, found out she was preg, then she lost the baby. I'd like to memorialize it in some way, but I don't really wear a lot of jewelry b/c of my job. But I love the ring itself (tungsten carbide). Didn't mean to jack the thread though. I'd say since its not really you who put the money down to buy it in the first place, whoever gives you the highest price in cash or certified check, take it. If you want to verify it thats fine as well
I'm sure I'd probably do the same if a gal did it to me.
