Divorce diamonds can be a bit of a challenge to figure out the best way to utilize them. When a marriage ends, obviously you are not going to continue to wear your wedding and engagement ring. Not usually. It is true that a minority of people – women in particular – continue to sport their wedding rings long after (sometimes decades after in some cases!) their divorce. Men, not so much. They usually are only happy to remove the daggone things.
But for other women, having these “divorce diamonds” on their hands is a problem and so they try to figure out what to do with them.
The obvious solution is to give them back to your husband but he often does not want or need them. In which case, you would have to talk with a jeweler to figure out your options which could include removing the diamonds and using them for a new piece of jewelry such as earrings, necklaces or bracelets; reusing the diamond rings as is in the new relationship; saving the gems for a child or children; melting down the ring and just hanging on to the gold/diamonds or selling the stones.
Divorce diamonds definitely have high resale value and normally are not a problem to unload especially when the quality of the ring and of the diamond especially is very good.
What do you think you should do with your divorce diamonds? Inquiring minds want to know.
