Trading up a wedding ring

If you take you wedding set and trade it up do you know how much you have to increase the value by? The set is about $3000 so i think they give you $3000 to apply towards a more expensive ring but not sure about all the details. i know it varies by store but just wondering.

PS this is his exwifes ring. She cheated on him 8 months into marriage and he wants to trade it up instead of just selling it.

  • You won't get what you paid for it, I think you might be better off selling it.

    I would sell it, then purchase a new one.

    Good luck...

  • my ring is 2100 and we had to buy something that was at least double the price of my ring. So, we had to buy something that was at least $ it would cost 2100 more, and a 2100 credit would be applied because of my ring.

  • My hubby had an ex-fiancee and the ring was worth like $2000 from jareds. When we went to buy mine they put $2000 towards the value of my ring under the conditions that the new ring was to be double the price of the trade in ....

    I thought it was a heck of a deal lol ...
