What to do with the rings(divorced)?

So came across my old wedding set and promise ring from my ex husband. Any idea what one could do with them?? I don't like the idea of keeping them for the boys because to me it was a tainted marriage, and don't want to bring bad luck to them and their future. Know what I mean?!?

Facing same thing. About to start divorce soon and trying to figure out rings, wedding pics, scrapbooks, etc. Can you sell them?

I burned all the pics or threw them away. As for the rings I sold them to the jeweler and got a nice lump sum. Diamonds and all.

I would look into that.

My rings were just silver and virtually worthless. I pitched them in an alligator infested lake.

It's been almost 5 years since the divorce and I am actually engaged now. Was thinking of selling them, but didn't know where the best place to do that was.

Call some of your local independent jewelers and ask if they would be interested in buying them. Diamonds usually keep a decent value.
Don't go to a pawn shop bc they won't give you a good price.

sell them but not sure where. Do you know what their value is now?  I have a set that was given to me from a relationship that went bad.  The girl did not want them.   I need mine appraised first before selling or pawning.

Not sure of their value. No idea where to get them appraised even.
