Bling for cash?

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? [more inside]

Jewelry like Niwaka in San Francisco?

San Francisco/Los Angeles: I'm interested in a ring from Niwaka. Unfortunately we'd have to fly to Kyoto or New York to try it. Is there anywhere in SF with similar designs? I've already been to the jewelry mart on 8th and Brannan and a few shops on Union. I'll be in LA next week, so that's an option too. Thanks.
