When to sell an engagement ring after divorce

During or after a divorce, you may find yourself wondering when to sell an engagement ring. If you think you may want to sell a diamond wedding ring or engagement ring, it is important to only sell when you feel ready to do so. Some people opt to sell the ring during their divorce while others opt to handle this after the divorce. There is no right or wrong time, it simply depends on your specific circumstances and when you feel comfortable to do so.

You should consider why you want to sell the diamond ring: is to put the past behind you or because you need to generate cash? Either way it is important to educate yourself about the value of the ring to set realistic price expectations.

Why sell an engagement ring after divorce

When you sell a diamond engagement ring it can be a positive emotional and financial experience that helps you move forward with your life:

  • Financial benefits of selling the ring: Keeping the ring in a vault or jewelry box may be impractical when you can make money selling it. A diamond ring that you no longer wear and is sat gathering dust in a drawer can be a great way to generate cash. Whether for divorce related costs or simply to put towards something you will use and love, the money raised from selling the ring can be used in a multitude of practical ways.
  • Emotional benefits of selling the engagement ring: Physical reminders of your last relationship can be painful. Selling the ring can feel like a good way to pro-actively move on from your past. Letting go of the past allows you to move on emotionally and start over.
