 Should You Pawn Your Engagement Ring?

Now it may happen that you want to get rid of the ring and try to pawn it, but it will get you nothing but only a trifle of what you originally paid. Don’t let those diamonds and gold go to waste! Pawn-shops will give you “scrap” value, meaning only the value of the raw materials sold at a discounted “buy back” rate. Instead of paying for the piece as a whole, evaluated by its materials, craftsmanship a brand, which is the pricing system you originally paid for.

 Resell Your Engagement Ring?

There are also a few companies that deal with reselling wedding sets and engagement rings. It’s a better option to pawning your gold rings, however, it can take an indefinite time to sell them, and even then, there’s no guarantee that it will get sold. If it’s a custom design not common in the commercial market the chances dwindle even more. Classic more generic engagement rings have a bit of a higher chance but it’s still not a guarantee.

 Recycle Your Engagement Rings

For a better option, you can always choose to refurbish your wedding ring set and get the ring transformed into a new custom design by reusing your old gold and diamonds. A much more cost-savvy way of buying custom jewelry. It’s also a chance for you to buy your own jewelry with your taste and style.

 Having considered these options, getting your engagement ring redesigned will probably be the best alternative for you. Transforming the jewelry can also signify a fresh start, a new long-awaited phase in your life that no longer carries the shadows of bad times but a new beginning, one you're creating for yourself.
