    Ewwwwwww no. No no no. No. Never ever ever. Not on my finger. Not in 100 years.

    Sell the ring & buy a new one.

    Has he tried selling it at a jewellers instead? $4k would mean the diamond and gold are of value to someone who could reuse them. Where as a pawn shop isn't exactly where people go to purchase quality diamonds.

    Yeah that's what I think.

    Glad I'm not the only one who would feel like that.

    I wouldn't feel comfortable accepting the ring as my own, knowing it's history.

    As others have said, try selling it on Ebay to fund the purchase of a new ring that is especially for YOU.

    It is disappointing that the pawn shop made such a lousy offer!

    I wouldn't get it made into something else because u will still always know the diamonds weren't yours first. Sell it and get somethin completely yours..
    You can even do no interest purchase at jewellery stores so u can slowly pay it off over a year or 2 in that time u should have sold the other ring

    Default Ex fiancees engagement ring.

    I'd try selling it too a jewellers. But no way would I wear the ring, No way in hell actually! I wouldn't even wear it if it was remolded.

    My ring means so much to me because DH chose is especially for ME!

    God I can't believe he even suggested giving it to you. YUCK. Eww. Maybe it's a chick thing, I don't know...

    i wouldn't want it either. to me it would just be bad Karma. I'd rather he sell it, or wait till you can save up to buy a different ring.

    You have to wear that ring EVERY day and you deserve a ring your fiancé picked out for you, not for his ex. Men are usually more practical and aren't always as sentimental

    Yeah men don't think like us lol.

    No way I'm going to wear it, I think he should sell it or give it to his mum.
    I think another reason he kept it is because she took everything else, even things that were his before they met but I guess some women are nasty like that.

    Default Ex fiancees engagement ring.

    What if he gave it to to your mum, you got engaged and saved whatever money you would have spent to put towards a very special 'all in one' wedding band designed by you and him ?

    No no and no!

    I could and would never wear a ring that was originally given to another woman
