Selling Wedding Rings for Top Value

Wedding rings and engagement sets not only hold a lot of value, they can also hold a lot of emotions. Perhaps you’ve inherited a ring and need to put it to good, practical use by selling it. Or, maybe a marriage is over; an engagement called off; a financial crisis causes a need for cash; or a death has left you with sad memories tied up in a ring. Whatever your reason, you need to turn to professionals who not only know their business but also know that there are real people involved, with real life experiences and feelings.

The Perfect Match?

You may go to a pawn broker, a jeweler, or an auction house to see what your ring is worth. People at these establishments should always treat you fairly and with respect. Unfortunately, this is often not the case. Many would-be sellers feel demeaned, dismissed, pressured and eventually cheated. If a place doesn’t feel right, or you’re not comfortable with the person or their offer, leave. Simple as that.


Wedding rings are as individual as the people who wear them. A variety of factors influences the price, including the type and amount of precious metal for the band and setting, stones and their qualities, and sometimes even age and condition. To get the highest payment for your ring, go to a reputable, knowledgeable buyer.
