    broke up with my fiance last night for the 100 time in the last few months getting the egagement ring back . would you guys hold onto it a while or trade it in i paid almost 15000 for it i know the owner of the jewlers i got it at said he will give me about 12500 for it .were just fighting over stupid stuff but i cant do this breaking up and getting back together .i was in a accident at work and im stuck home for last few months had spine surgery and my job checks to see that im home so i cant leave the house because i get my full pay while out im a nyc sanitation worker . think ive been a prick because im stuck here and been taking it out on her . but she hasnt been that nice either having trouble in school hard class shes becoming a nurse .we went from seeing each other everyday till we just go out on the weekends .and now decided to take a rest so i dont know what to do do i take the ring and sell it back or wait and see what happens

    I'd hold onto it. Gold sure ain't gonna drop in value anytime soon. And you never know, you might give it to someone else someday.

    I would say hold on to it. My fiance just passed her nclex and started working at a hospital. I remember when she was still in nursing school she had a really hard time with all the stuff they needed to learn and alot of fights we had were just because she needed to blow off steam and I was there. it gets better.

    ditto, read my thoughts exactly. Add in a CAI , exhaust, and a 6" lift. Might even have room for some big ol tires and some shiny DUBS.

    Flippin 'eck, 15k? Man, that's a lot of money.

    Anyhoo, I've been there and done that. I took mine (or rather her's) back to the jeweller I bought it from and he said he'd try and sell it. Took about 3 years of being in his window and eventually someone bought it. Everyone else thought it would be jinxed. I got about 2/3 back, not bad.

    Damn sight cheaper than a D I V O R C E.

    By the way, good luck keeping your genitals attached if you do give it to another chick and she finds out she's the second user!

    I dunno. I guess I don't care what I make, but if a girl requires a rock that money, she ain't for me. Especially with how marriage is such a gamble these days. My ex, she got a family heirloom ring. That and there was a prenup too that I got it back if things went sour.

    Scandalous skeezes and stunts, I say.
