    My mother gave me her wedding ring from my dad yet they divorced yrs and yrs ago. I guess it still meant a lot to her and made her happy to pass it to me as I loved my dad even though he wasn't in my life.

    My mum has her engagement ring still - not sure where. When her and dad split she took off her wedding ring and I asked if I could have it. I still have it in a box somewhere. The plan was originally to look into getting it melted down and redone into a new ring for her but I just haven't ever had the time!

    I've still got my old wedding and engagement rings from my previous marriage. They really wont be worth much to sell, although I have no emotional attachment to them either. I don't really know what to do with them!

    So many of us are in the same boat, we've kept them because we simply don't know what to do with them, and the resale value is such a small percentage of their original purchase price...

    Have any of you thought of having them melted down and something else made from them? I have my deceased mothers wedding ring in which I then had 2 rings made to fit in with it. Had I had jewellery from an ex though I wouldn't like to wear it. A friend of mine had all hers melted and a bangle made.

    I hocked mine to pay bills. For my engagement, wedding and eternity rings, I got $240 in total.

    This is about what I was quoted. The rings actually cost thousands, so I'm struggling with the tiny amount...

    The rings, I'm not sure. I think the engagement ring was $850 on sale, the wedding ring would have been around $100 and the eternity ring $200 maybe?

    Does anyone know, for sure, do you get more money from pawning things or from selling them at cash converters? Just wondering if I might get more money from one or the other..
