If things didn't quite work out as you had planned after your walk down the aisle, it may be time to open the next chapter of your life. Long after the wedding bells have stopped ringing, people are likely still asking you, "What are you going to do with your ring?" For many – the answer is sitting in a drawer gathering dust. To some, their wedding ring is still sentimental and carries intense feelings. For others, it is nothing more than a valuable asset weighing you down.
Selling your wedding ring is not something that should be taken lightly. It is probably not a good idea to hit the pawn shop on your way home from the courthouse. Once it's sold – the chances of getting it back if you change your mind is very slim, so don't let anger rule your decision.
Emotional Attachment: If that attachment is gone, the ring can be gone too. Sometimes just having the ring around can bring you down emotionally and remind you of something that once was. If you are not completely detached emotionally, it might be best to let it gather a little more dust until you are absolutely sure you're ready.
Making Money Sense: Divorce is expensive, sometimes it makes sense to use the ring as a way to cover the costs that arise during the divorce process. It also may help newly single moms to get an apartment or make the mortgage payments until you get back on your feet. For many individuals, selling the ring is simply a financial decision.
Create Positivity: If you don't need the money – make a charitable donation, or use it to buy a nice gift for your children or friends. Take a vacation, or buy yourself something to start out your next chapter.
Make a Swap: Sometimes new divorcees miss wearing something heavy on their left hand, so a pawn shop is a great place to make a swap for your old ring with something new, different, and unique to you.
If you are unsure whether you can part with your ring, you can opt for a pawn loan instead of an outright sale. Simply take your ring to one of our pawn shops in Utah and get an all-cash loan for 30-60 days. After the loan period is over, you can decide whether to keep the money and forget about the ring, or return the money (with interest) and get back your ring.
It is imperative to do your homework before coming to our pawn shop and know what you have. The good news is that jewelry stores keep very good records. If you know who purchased it, where, and when – you can probably find the exact information for your ring. While the intrinsic value of your ring has little to do with how much you paid, it will still give you valuable information on the material, quality, weight, etc.
If you're not sure where it was purchased, you can still get information on your ring from a local jeweler. It is important to understand what your ring is made of, and any details you can gather about the gems before going to the pawn shop to sell or trade.
