When Should You Sell Your Engagement Ring

For some women, it may seem like a strange question. For others, it makes perfect sense.

Simply because your engagement ring held emotional value at one time does not mean you need to hold on to it forever. A broken engagement, a divorce, or even the passing of a beloved spouse can make it difficult to wear something you once cherished, but that doesn’t mean it should stay tucked away in your jewelry box, either.

When you’re ready, selling your engagement ring is a great way to get closure and to earn some extra spending money in the process—but how do you know when you’re ready? Here are three good ways to know when it’s time to sell.

    1. You just feel like it’s time.

    It may sound cliché, but when you know, you know. When something starts to feel more like a burden than a treasure, that’s usually a good sign you’re ready to let it go. Maybe your engagement ring holds more bad memories than good, or maybe you’re just simply ready to move on to the next chapter of your life. Either way, selling your ring can mean the start of better things.

    2. You don’t wear it anymore.

    This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Many women upgrade their engagement rings over time, swapping the original token for something bigger, brighter, or simply more their style. So, why hang on to something you’re not going to wear anymore?

    3. You’ve done your homework.

    If you’ve already started to research how much your ring might be worth or the best place to sell it, you’re clearly ready to take the next step. And most likely that research has told you to be wary of selling your ring online or taking it to the nearest pawn shop. Working with a licensed and reputable jewelry appraiser is the best way to make sure you get what your engagement ring is truly worth, which is why Southwest Jewelry Buyers should be your first and only stop.
