Bling for cash?
June 24, 2010 1:07 PM Subscribe
I'm in possession of an old engagement ring that was purchased in ~2002 and was, at the time, about $750 at one of those mall jewelry stores. It's less than a carat, but I'm not sure how much less. No paperwork. I'd forgotten I still had it until I found it in a box. Ex did not want it returned. What's the best way to get rid of it and get the most cash possible?

I realize it's likely not worth nearly what was originally paid. I just don't want to rely on some scammy place that buys jewelry for peanuts to tell me how much it's worth, but I don't know what else to do with it. I thought about just listing it on Craigslist/Ebay, but I can find no record of its size/clarity, and everywhere seems to want money to actually tell me that information. But I don't know if it's worth paying for.
Thanks for your help!
