I haven''t decided what to do with the wedding rings yet but I have been contemplating turning the diamond from my engagement ring into a pendant. It''s only been about five weeks so not sure what to do with the bands. I may trade them in for a necklace to hold the pendant.

I chucked mine into the Thames the day I finally left the FMH . It felt liberating.

Mine sat in my jewellery box until my house was broken into and the box was stolen, so I got the money for them from the insurance company!!

sold my wedding ring and eternity, once divorce was finalised. Enagagement ring wasn''t worth enough.

Used money to settle an outstanding legal bill.

No regrets - however it depends on people circumstances for splitting as to whether they feel emotionally attached to rings etc..

I did the same as survive sold the wedding ring and used the money to pay for the divorce, that said it meant nothing at all to be by then.

If anyone wants the details of the people I sent mine to for scrap, please send me a PM. I did a bit of research before using them and I''ve used them several times now and a few of my friends have too. I double checked with my local independent High Street jeweller and they offered me a third of what I actually got for the first batch. It really is worth throwing in odd or broken earrings etc. I sent off bits and pieces of broken gold for one of my friends and she got over £600.

Sold mine for its scrap value back to the jeweller I originally brought it from,then blew the money on a new coat.I found it quite therapeutic!
