wearing jewelry from an ex?

Do you, or would you wear jewelry an ex gave you?

So many necklaces, earrings and rings, are things my exhusband gave me. I obviously don't wear my wedding ring or anymore, but the other things I do wear occassionally.

  • I don't wear any of the rings or anything that my ex fiance gave me, but I did have the diamond removed from my engagement ring and put into a necklace. I don't even have the setting anymore, I have no idea what happened to it. Everything else he gave me was personalized (either with our initials or our names) so I just use the diamond.

  • I wouldn't. But that's because I'm just soo in to video games that I'd probably pawn it off and throw a wii party! LOL!

  • No. I re-set the gemstone jewelry he gave me, and sold the yellow gold, and things I just didn't want to be reminded of, towards the cost of resetting and designing new pieces.

  • Having it redesigned is great!! Also can sell some on ebay if you want to get rid of it. 14K is doing well there now.

  • yeah, i use them sometimes. Some of them I'm going to give to DD when she grows up. I'm NOT going to throw away the 24k massive gold bangel, that shit is worth a fortune! I don't care that it came from my ex...LOL DD wil have that when she gets older.

  • Sure I would. I see no reason not to... I still have lots of things my ex's gave me. No jewelry, but I have candle holders, stuffed animals and other stuff. I like them, that's why they bought them, why would I get rid of them just because I don't like the guy who gave them to me? He may be a piece of crap, but the stuff he gave me is still good...

  • His mom gave me gold that his ex gave back when she broke up with him. So I cashed it in for money and made $100.
