What do you do with the wedding rings after your divorced?

Keeping them as keepsakes doesn’t seem to fly for philosophical reason of moving on, or what your new partner might think. Simply getting rid of them is a waste of potential money (of course if it was that bad ya might not care). If you sell them, what do you then do with the money you get from them? Using the money from old wedding rings to buy new ones for a current mate seems wrong on many different levels. And buying something with the money might drive the subconscious in carrying over any psychic energy from the rings to this, whatever it is you bought. Do you crouch in the corner rubbing it while you repeat to yourself, “my precious” over and over again?

Thank for the insight.

I kept mine for my daughter. When she's older I plan to make a nice necklace or ring setting out of them for her. Just because I don't like the rememberence of her father doesn't mean she doesn't.

If you dont want to keep them, nor toss them, sell them, put the money in the bank, and don't worry about what next item was purchased using that money. If you dont want to keep the money, donate it to a charitable cause.

The gold has some value but melted down... where would I sell mine? The diamond was lost but I have the setting... I know I would never get anything if i pawned it...

Never pawn. They go by the weight of the gold not the diamonds. I've seen lots of wedding sets on Ebay. I'd give that a try.

It's easy:

You give them back to your ex and he/she can do what he/she pleases.

Wedding rings - before being a of jewel - are a symbol, plain and simple. When the marriage doesn't exist anymore, you get rid of the symbol. So you give them back to your ex and he/she does what he/she wants with them.

What did I do with my ex's wedding band? I threw it in the garbage. I certainely didn't want to sell it and have some money back over something that was dead for me. And what did I do with mine? I simply put them in a box and shipped them back to him. Case closed, not hearder than that.

My husband and I are headed for divorce. He wears my wedding ring on his little finger to honor his 1st true love for me. I wear his wedding ring on my thumb for the same reason. We used to kiss each others rings while we were wearing them before. I find myself still kissing the ring and holding it to my heart at times. I dont regret our marriage and the life we had, I do regret that it went down the path to end. Truly I wish we could make us work and save our marriage, but time will only tell if our paths will ever cross again. We grew up together through school and never thought we would end up together. We have been married 9 yrs and have 4 children, so life works in misterious ways. Not knowing what the furture may hold for us and our children, the love we have may lead us back to each other in the end, no one but God above knows that answer right now....
