  • I got off easy 3 month after my divorce I was living with my grandpartens and they house burnt down. Since I was living there all my stuff was covered under their insurance. I got the price of the ring back.
  • Its in a jewlery box I will give it top my daugher when she gets older
  • The engagement ring is back with his mother. It's a family heirloom, it's only right that it goes back to his family. The wedding band itself is not worth much - I paid $12 for it at a pawn shop. It's in a small ring box in my larger jewelry box (coincidentally, the one he made for me), waiting for the time when I get sick of looking at it and finally put it somewhere else.
  • I er. . . .lost mine. I lost my engagement ring actually and still have my wedding band around somewhere. It's just a plain gold band and it looks nice stacked with other rings, so I kept it.
  • i think my dad hurled his wedding ring into bellingham bay. hahaha... i guess it kind of sucks though because it was supposed to go to my husband someday.
  • I never had a ring - I'm allergic to metal.
  • I pawned it and used the money to celebrate.
  • I drove to Memphis to the Mississippi River, and dropped it from the Hernando DeSoto bridge, at the TN/AR state line. Then I called my ex wife and told her to come and get it.
  • You pick up a Wedding Ring Coffin at http://www.weddingringcoffin.com. Pick out an appropriate plaque, say a few words, then close the lid on your relationship.
  • I threw it in the junk drawer. (You know, the one everybody has that is full of screws, bread ties, extension cords, Coax cable ends, nails?.... The junk drawer rusted up over the years, so when I went to replace the drawers, I threw the contents. My ring was then escorted in a trash can to the Saint Francois County Landfill and buried with other trash. This was all eventually covered in good dirt, and a large beautiful grassy area has grown over the top... I hope the ring doesnt kill it.
  • I kept mine and later pawned it off so that my 3 children and I could pay the rent. The ex had a thing about not wanting to pay child support. imagine that!
  • 1st one, I left behind on the dresser. 2nd one, I pawned. 3rd one I still have. Anyone want to buy it? lol
  • LOL I never told anyone this, but I actually just remembered it. My (NOW EX) gave me a beautiful diamond and I cherished it, as I did our so called marriage. When things got so bad that I had to take my children and leave, I found out he actually stole that ring, when he and other officers investigated a burglary/fire in a home. OMG..I pawned it, and bought food for my kids.
  • i threw it in the river long before the divorce.
  • Threw it in the North sea and i hope a very large cod swollowed it lol.
  • Hi. I am so new here, and not sure if this is where I should type this. I apologize if it seems insensitive. I'm actually trying to find a used wedding ring set, that has a real diamond. (Never got diamond in original set). Can someone help me? I've ebay'd until I was blue, but would just like to work with someone on this. I don't have alot. (I work 2 jobs, he stay home dad of 3 girls, diabetic, and I have the insurance). Please help?
  • Wow, good question. I say this at least in part because this is something that I've been wondering about myself! I guess you end up with rings in the junk drawer! Heck, I don't know. Rings are not really the first thing a recently divorced person would want to think about, I suppose. But a good question!
  • What kind of tattoo? I'll bet pawn shops are full of those rings.
  • I still have mine somewhere but when and if I find it I am going to either pawn it off and make some money to pay it off since my ex husband didn't pay for it or I will save it and give it to my oldest girl when she gets older.
  • My wedding and engagement rings laid in a box for many years until one of my sons wanted to get married (they were dead broke at the time) so I gave them my rings to save them having to buy any. They're divorced now too!
  • I still have it 17 years later. I'm not sure that anyone else would want it. I was married for 24 years and I was devastated by the divorce. I have three daughters; I think they might consider it bad luck if I offered it to any of them.
  • I gave it my aunt who is a jeweller. She sold it, and I bought a beautiful pair of shoes. Which will prob last longe than my marriage. I sold his ring too!
  • I gave mine to my daughter. She wanted it and I saw no reason not to give it to her.
  • It sleeps with the fishes.
  • hawk it.
  • i threw it at her
  • I wear it.....It's mine, and I love it! I picked it out, I made all the payments (his money) but I went and put the money towards the ring myself, I had it sized, and I put it on my own finger, therefore it is mine to wear if I want, it's just too pretty to put in a box forever.
  • I still have my 1st ring and currently working on the 2nd!!!!!!!!!! I just can't bring myself to throw it away. Some people think---oh -- you must still love her. Hell no!!!!! I just can't get rid of the symbol.
  • I've kept in a jewelry box. It belonged to my grandmother. I figured I'd give it to one my daughters - but not to be used as a commitment ring. That's really bad luck in my book!
  • You melt it down and have it made into a bullet! What you do with it after that is up to you. Hopefully, just knowing you have it, will be enough satisfaction. P.S. I haven't really done this, but I love the idea of it.
  • Which ring are you talking about? The wedding ring or the suffering?
  • It is tucked away in my jewelry box, where it will always stay.
  • I can't seem to take my ring off yet. It feels weird to not wear it *sigh*. I still love my husband as crazy as that sounds. What can I do to heal and move on? the ring is so pretty.
  • Threw it into the ohio river :)
  • I'm not divorced yet but my wedding band is still in my ashtray in my car where it's been for the last 7 months. It's a plain gold band so I don't think it'll be worth pawning. As I never 'deserved' a diamond ring in our 13 years of marriage (direct quote) I guess I'll eventually use the gold band on another finger as regular jewelry. That's when y'all will know I've healed from this relationship.
  • I pawned the wedding ring and the engagement ring for a total of $50.00
  • I am holding on to it to pass down to my kiddos when they are grown.
  • Mine is sitting in a box on top of my dresser with other jewelry that I don't wear.
  • It sat dormant inside a box for a while, but lately I started wearing it to ward off unwanted advances from strangers while traveling alone. Much easier to say "sorry, married!" than "sorry, not interested in YOU."
  • I threw my ring into the Pacific Ocean. I hope the fish that eat the ring didn't get sick.
  • i think it depends on what kind of divorce you had. if it was an easy mutual seperation keep it and give it to your kids as they get older. if it was a horrible pain staking trial melt it or trow it into the ocean. if it was inbetween them pawn it and buy a new pair of shoes!! =]
  • I kept my band for my kids in case they want it. Although melting it down is intriguing.
  • I got them both and gave them to our oldest son and our daughter. They will pass them on to their children.
  • Removed the arm when her lawyer had finished fisting me up it!
  • It's in my safety deposit box. Now I wish I had just let her keep it and have it reset or something. It's useless where it is . I have had no contact for 30 years.
  • Threw it into the ohio river :)
  • I put it in a collection box for the Salvation Army. Honestly.
  • I have mine and my ex-husband's (we get along now so it was easy to get, he actually gave it to me & asked me to put it with mine) and I have them put up for our daughter to have when she gets older... If we didn't have a daughter I don't know what I would have done, either pawn it or have the diamond taken out of it and had another piece of jewlery made with it maybe..
  • Well after I threw it at her at the mental hospital, I kinda lost track of it.
  • I gave mine to a homeless guy in the street, he couldn't believe his luck

  • It got lost somewhere.
  • Sent it first class to Golum.
  • I took my wedding and engagement rings, plus most of the jewelry my XH gave me and had the stones removed and the gold melted down. I drew a rough design for the type of ring that I'd like, and had a jeweler make it using the stones and gold.
  • Took it to the pawn shop and got stuff the kids needed cuz he wasnt helping by not paying child support.
  • I threw mine off a boat dock as walked into a single's bar for the first time in my adult life...
  • He sold it for money to gamble with before he left.... but he also left his.... bad idea..... personal object from someone who has P!SS#D me off royaly, in my possesion.... hehehehehee! still waiting for the divorce.......
  • It's just a cheap thing that is now still in the original box that it came in, in a dresser drawer.I'm not really sure what to do with it. It's not like it's worth that much, only cost around $70.00 when new.
  • I kept it for as long as I could before I lost it, which disappointed me greatly. I wanted to pass it along to our son to help him with his sense of identity as he grew older. Since it was an Irish Claddaigh, he could have worn it and had something not inappropriate for a young man. I still have no idea how it was lost, but it may have had some help. I really liked that ring.
  • In the safety deposit box.
  • I left it on his desk with the other jewlery he bought me. I just couldn't stand the feel of it any more. In fact when we were together I was always taking ot off which is weird since I usally don't take off the rings I wear all the time.
  • I kept it to pass down to my son! I would have shoved it up my ex husbands a** but, it is a very expensive and beautiful ring!
  • I saved mine to give to our daughter.
  • I would make a pendant,or a new ring from it,then pass it down,if you want..
  • Usually the law says that it is (was) a gift and that you can keep it. But, I'd rather return it to my ex, it was his money, we didn't work out, and I am not gold digger.
  • I plan on turning my engagement ring into...a pair of oval diamond earrings and an oval sapphire necklace.
  • You're jerkwad ex-husband takes it and pawns it and keeps the money.
  • i sold mine on ebay!!!! that was so satisfying - i got £40 for it.
  • Eat it
  • I pawned my ring for money because my ex husband abused me, cheated on me, and he didn't make any effort to work on our marriage. I didn't see any reason to keep the ring because it will only make me upset.
  • I pawned it.
  • I don`t know what my ex did, mine is in the box on the shelf.
  • I cut mine in half with a pair of pliers and left it for her--she gave it to me as a promise and a symbol and I altered it to fit reality. It felt really good.
  • I threw it at her and walked off right to the looney bin.
  • sold it to a pawn shop
  • In my case I threw it in a draw.
  • I lost it 15 yrs ago when I washed my hand in the bathroom. try to find it but gone. Never try to replace one 'cause my love to my wife is not completed. (A reflection of how you feel, casue the circle means eternalty.)
  • Mine are in a little box still. It is sentimental in a way. I've thought of having it redone, but the diamond is so small and I kind of liked the way the gold pattern was. I have no clue what to do with it. It was only worth about $250 at the time. My new marriage my ring is worth 10 times that.
  • In 1991, I found out my husband was cheating on me with a woman from work whom he promoted; I knew they went to a pond near work to have lunch, make out, etc. So I decided one day to throw my beautiful diamond ring into that pond, 45 minutes from home. Fortunately, I changed my mind en route. Nearly 18 years later, I am glad to have the ring. The marriage ended, but I love the ring and have worn it often. Someday I might change the setting, but it's not illegal to wear it, at least not that I know of. If someone asks, it's a "family" ring. And I will either keep wearing it, give it to our son, or maybe sell it for a down payment for a condo--which will also go to our son someday.
  • i have kept my wedding band and engagement ring set for my first born child when he decides to want to propose to his girl of his dreams. OH and today i finally had my hearing and re my divo and will be decreed in a months time party hard is sad to see an ending of something I worked hard on but what is to be is to be new future ahead of me.. hoping for the better.
  • my wedding band and engagement ring I have kept for my first born to put on his girl of his dreams one day.. I love the set and hoping it will bring better luck for them than it did me and his dad..
  • I pawned it and bought me lunch at Olive Garden and a boquet of flowers on him since he never took me out or bought me flowers during our entire 4 years of marriage. Thanks ex!!!!
  • I used it for the next three marriages, lol......
  • I still have it. Can you believe that the sob had the audacity to ask for it back?
  • I gave my ring to my ex when I found out she was cheating on me. She ended up pawning off both rings to supplement her "entertainment" budget.
  • depends. i still have mine. i have pawned one before though
  • Sold it on Ebay. Got more for it than my exhusband ever gave me!
  • I'm not divorced but my parents are my dad sold his and my mom put hers in a drawer some where.
  • The jeweler had a guaranteed buy-back policy, so I returned them for full credit, and went on a MAJOR shopping spree, buying lots of rings, earrings & necklaces for myself & my daughters.
  • I didn't have to worry about it my @@%*# ex hocked my $1600.00 ring for $200. and never got it out of hock. I should have known then that the marriage was over.
  • Sell the wedding band for scrap metal and use the money to take yourself to the local salon/ spa or bar, depending on your preference. If you have a diamond, take it to a jeweler and trade it in for a new diamond of YOUR choosing, and wear it proudly, calling it your "Now I'm married to ME" ring.
  • It was a plain gold band. In fact, I bought the wedding rings - $49.95 for the set. (We were young and wanted to do our wedding all by ourselves.) After 18 years of marriage, my $250 engagement ring and $25 wedding band sit in my jewlery box. It was never about the money, and I keep them both to remind me how much love means to me over money.
  • sold them - they mean nothing to me now
  • Flushed them all , except one, I threw it off a bridge LOL
  • It's in a box somewhere. Means nothing to me but I haven't decided whether I'll keep it or throw it away someday...
  • Right after the divorce was final I went out and bought a beer to celebrate then took that ring and put it around the neck of that beer and called everyone over to party!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Well, my mom kept her ring and then sold it after a couple of months. Made a ton of cash! I think its hilarious.
  • My father kept his wedding band to be passed on to my brother (or me, not sure yet) when the time comes.
