Dis-engagement ring question: After splitting up with my fiancé and agreeing that she would return the ring to me, I'm not sure what to do about returning/reselling the ring to get the most back from this most sizeable of investments.

I bought the ring just over a year ago for $4000. I believe I was getting a really good deal as the jewler has done a lot of business with my ex-fiance's family and he was looking favorably on me. I just talked with him and what he suggests is that I send him the ring, he resets the stones in a new setting and puts it for sale in his shop in LA (I'm in northern CA). I have no idea how much I should expect to get back. I'm in no hurry, but there are far better things that I could be doing with the money that's tied up in this ring.
One thing I'm concerned about is if I go through with this LA jewler's plan, how do I protect myself legally? I'd need to have something in writing and I'm not sure how to go about asking for something like that without coming off as distrustfull. I'm also looking for other suggestions as to how to proceed.
