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?!?

The rings didn't have anything to do with the marriage going bad!  Why would they bring bad luck to your boys?  I kept mine from my first marriage for my son to pass on to his kids.

Ok, so the marriage didnt work, but it wasnt all bad u got 2 boys out of it. Id keep them for them and show them that they came from love. The boys could decide if they want to keep them when they are old enough.

I kept my engagement ring for our daughter. I think it is an inportant of my history with my kids dad so I kept it for her.

A jeweler will appraise them & purchase them

Sell them. I gave my ex back my wedding ring. It had been his grandmother's (from a divorce). I would think about selling it then forget. When his grandmother died last year he asked for it back.

Well, after 20 years, I still wear my engagement ring, because it is beautiful and I like it to keep away the riff raff.  Also, it will go to my daughter, who's dad gave it to me, but she is in no hurry for it,.  She has her own wedding set, but she knows it's her ring, eventually.
