What to Do With Your Jewelry After an Unfortunate Circumstance
Deciding what to do with your jewelry after an unfortunate circumstance like a divorce is easy for some and more difficult for others. Jewelry can hold sentimental value even if the marriage ended badly. Others will forget about the items, and they will sit in the jewelry box for years. There is no right or wrong answer to what you should do with your jewelry. Here are a few ideas of what you can do.
Keep the Ring
If you love the style of the ring, keep it. You can always wear it as a right-hand ring. Whether it is the good memories you cherish or you love the cut and design of the ring, you are free to keep it and use it if you want.
Save the Ring for Your Children or Other Family Members
The ring may have bad memories to you, but other family members may remember otherwise. There is no need to be superstitious about a failed marriage. Remember that there was initially a lot of love between the couple and moments of happiness that family members cherish. If your children or other family members are old enough, go ahead and ask if they would have interest in using and or owning it in the future. However, don’t take offence if they do refuse it. It could be a symbol of heartache while others can remember positive moments between you and your ex.
Repurpose the Ring
If you are a jewelry lover, repurpose the ring. Engels Jewelry Company can use your stones and metal and recreate the piece into something you can wear every day. While divorce is an ending in one way, it is also a transformation into a new beginning and repurposing your diamond can be a personal symbol of that. You could also separate the piece and give the stones to family members to use.
Sell the Ring and Donate the Money or Treat Yourself
If you want the ring and any memories it has associated with it out of your life, sell it. You can use that money and donate it to a charity of your choice and help others. You can also treat yourself and buy a new fun piece of jewelry, go on a trip, upgrade your car, buy a pet, use it towards further education (or college fund for kids or other family members), or buy new appliances. There are many options to make yourself happy and to say goodbye to any bad memories.
Engels Jewelry Company would be happy to help you with whatever you choose to do with your jewelry. It’s important to remember that there is no right or wrong answer when it comes to what you should do with your ring. It is a personal decision, and you should find the best way to turn it into something that makes you happy.
