Selling an engagement ring? Avoid these mistakes as prices drop

We earn commissions for transactions made through links in this post. Here's more on how we make money.

California divorced mom Marissa Forrester's 1.5 carat diamond engagement ring had a retail value of $10,000 in 2012. Eleven years later in 2023, she sold it online for a quarter of that — $2,500.

“I thought I'd get something close to $5,000 or $6,000,” Forrester told me. “I was disappointed, but glad to finally get rid of it!”

While the resale value of a diamond has always been very low — 50% or even far less — prices have plummeted in the last two years as inexpensive lab-grown diamonds compete with natural stones, and the global economy is depressed.

While it may be disappointing to sell such an expensive item for such a small sum, it may make sense to sell now before prices drop even further.

Common mistakes women make when selling an engagement ring

Most jewelry is a gift, and therefore an emotional possession — even if the gold, diamond or other material is really just a commodity. Engagement rings are the most emotional of all.

Before you figure out how and where to sell your engagement ring, let's knock out some common emotional barriers that may be standing in the way:

1. Waffle about whether to sell or keep your engagement ring

I meet a lot of women who hold on to their engagement rings for a years, which in this market, means that they are losing money every day — all while holding on to a momento from what was likely a sad breakup.

Others similarly hold on to their ring for their children to use for their own engagement ring one day. I try not to judge, but that is nothing but bad mojo.

Others repurpose the center stone of their engagement ring into a necklace or other jewelry. Many seem happy with that choice, but again — there are plenty of other diamonds that don't carry the negative baggage of your divorce.

In general, women are happier once they get rid of their engagement rings — whether they sell (and use the funds to pay off debt, go on vacation, invest in a business or education), or, in the case of Mallory in Oregon, climbed the summit of a local mountain, wrapped the ring in a scrunchie and tossed it off a cliff. “Never felt better,” she told me.

2. Assume your ring is worth more than it is

This post spells out how to understand what your engagement ring is really worth on the resale market. Dig into that ASAP — know what you are dealing with.

Word to the wise from Jessica in Lumberton, N.C.:

I thought about keeping my bridal set for my kids. However, I know there are a lot of superstitious people in our world. Plus, there was no way of knowing if either of my children would want the rings. So I finally decided to sell them to a pawn shop, mainly because my ex was not helping financially.

The pawnshop owner told me the diamonds are fake and they're not even quality crystals! So I asked about selling the set for the gold scrap value. They tell me it's gold-plated!

I was mad, but I didn't know if my ex knew or if he was scammed. The jewelers where he bought the rings had closed down because people were finding out when they were bringing in real diamond jewelry to be sized or cleaned that their real diamonds were being taken out and were replaced with fake cheaply made stones. I went to another pawn shop and jewelry store hoping that the first place was wrong, but that was not the case. I did find someone that would take the set, but I literally got $10 for it, which at least replaced the gas I had burned going to all the different places for quotes. 

How to tell if your gold is real

One of the reasons many women choose not to sell their engagement ring is that the price they are quoted from a jeweler or auction site is much lower than what they believe their ring is worth.

There are several reasons diamonds lose so much value:

  1. Wholesale ring buyers need to make a profit when they resell your ring or earrings, so they like to buy low.
  2. Diamond values are down at least 30% from their peak in summer 2022.
  3. A common misunderstanding is that the engagement ring owner believes that, for example, she has a 1-carat engagement ring, when in reality, the center stone is .5 carats, and the surrounding smaller stones total .5 carats. Most jewelers or ring buyers value the smaller stones very little — perhaps less than $100 total in this case — and are only interested in the center stone.

Diamonds do not hold their value the same way that commodities like gold and silver do. Typically, the resale value of diamond jewelry is 30% to 50% of what you paid for it. 

One online diamond buyer told me that the resale value can be as little as 5%.

“People are always surprised by how little their diamond is worth, but diamond retail prices have always been inflated, and now prices are dropping like crazy,” he said.

Prices have fallen nearly 30% since their peak in summer 2022, according to IDEX, which tracks global diamond trends:

IDEX April 4, 2024 report.
IDEX diamond index as of April 4, 2024.

3. Try to sell your ring without documentation

Now, many people, especially those with smaller stones, do not have a proper diamond appraisal, and that is OK.

Nonetheless, do your best to learn everything you can about what your diamond is worth. If you have a GIA certificate for your engagement ring or other lab report, the original box, receipt, and any documentation of the size and quality of the stones and metal, send or bring it with you when you sell.

The resale value of your engagement ring depends on the size, cut, clarity and color of the stone, as well as the market value of the precious metal in which it is set. Plus, yours might be worth more if it's from a designer jewelry brand. All of these can be documented in a lab report or even a jewelry appraisal or diamond appraisal

These reports typically cost between $100 and $300, so they're only worth it if your item is worth at least $1,000.

4. Take the first offer for your engagement ring

It's always worthwhile to get at least two offers for your engagement ring (or any jewelry for that matter).

You can always start with a quote from a jewelry store, diamond buyer, or local pawn shop. 

No matter where you end up selling — even if you are not a skilled negotiator, the buyer will typically respond to your suggestion for a higher price. As my mom used to say: They won't respect you unless you negotiate!

It’s easy to obtain multiple offers from online diamond buyers. Here's how the process typically works:

  1. Online diamond buyers will ask you for some basic information about your engagement ring, either online or over the phone.
  2. They'll give you an initial estimate, either via email or over the phone.
  3. A quality online buyer will send a free FedEx, UPS, or USPS mailer that includes insurance (you should be able to track your item all the way to the buyer — and back if you decide not to sell).
  4. The diamond buyer will make a final offer after evaluating your engagement ring in person, which you can accept or reject. Again: negotiate! Many of the top diamond buyers offer payouts within 24 hours or less.

Selling your engagement ring to a local jeweler or pawn shop may give you quick cash, which is important to a lot of people.

Where to sell a designer engagement ring: Worthy

If you have something that’s high value because you have large diamonds or a designer engagement ring (Tiffany & Co, Cartier, Harry Winston, Van Cleef & Arpels, etc.), and you don't need the money immediately, consider Worthy.

FAQs about selling an engagement ring

Can I legally sell my engagement ring?

In all states, any item that was gifted to you, you own. Typically, an engagement ring is a gift from one person to the other — the receiver of the ring in this case has full legal ownership and has the right to sell, trade or trash it.

Should I get my engagement ring appraised before selling?

An appraisal from a local jeweler is useful for insurance resale value, or perhaps to understand the quality of your engagement ring. A lab report can be very helpful in selling your engagement ring, or for getting a loan against your ring, but will cost $100 to $300, so this only makes sense for more valuable items.

How much will I get if I sell my diamond ring? How much is a diamond worth?

Your engagement ring is worth the current market price for the diamond and metal.

The real value in selling your wedding or engagement ring or other jewelry you don’t wear is that it frees up all that negative energy attached to the item, stewing indefinitely in your jewelry box. It felt good to rid my home and mind of that significant marriage memento.

Even if you loved the ring, loved your ex, loved being married, love any kids that came from that union (yes, yes, yes, yes for me), it is time to move on and free the mental energy attached to the ring — not to mention the money!

How much will a jeweler pay for an engagement diamond ring or wedding ring set?

A jeweler will likely pay you anywhere from 5% to 50% of the retail value of your ring, similar to pawn shops. Again, this may be less than what you would get from an online buyer, as a jeweler will have a higher markup. Shop around to ensure you get the best price and always negotiate. 

A 1-carat diamond and gold engagement ring will fetch resale prices ranging from $1,000 to $5,000, depending on the cut, quality and setting. Platinum setting and large side stones can mean higher prices, as can name brands like Tiffany or Cartier.

Bottom line: Is it worth it to sell an old engagement ring?

A couple years after my divorce, I sold my engagement ring and wedding band at a fine jewelry buyer in New York City, where I lived.

I only received a fraction of what my now ex-husband and I paid for it, but I felt I got a fair price and used the proceeds to fund a trip my kids took to Europe with their dad to visit family — which I felt good about.

Where can I sell my engagement ring for the most money?

Selling your engagement ring to a local jeweler or pawn shop may give you quick cash, which is important to a lot of people. However, brick-and-mortar jewelry buyers typically pay less than online buyers, so I recommend considering a reputable diamond buyer online.

Do engagement rings hold their value?

While over time, diamonds have historically risen in value from a retail price point, do not expect to get your money back on an engagement ring. Typically, resale value of fine gemstone jewelry is one-third to one-half of what you pay for it. Diamond prices have been declining over the past year.

How much can you sell an engagement ring for?

A 1-carat diamond and gold engagement ring will fetch resale prices ranging from $1,000 to $5,000, depending on the cut, quality and setting. Large side stones can mean higher prices, as can name brands like Tiffany or Cartier.

How much will a jeweler pay for a diamond ring?

A jeweler will likely pay you anywhere from 20% to 50% of the retail value of your ring. Shop around to ensure you get the best price.

Should you sell your engagement ring?

Overall, I am a huge fan of selling your engagement ring in the event that your relationship ends, and I did so myself. Diamond prices are declining, so best to sell now before your ring is worth less in the future.


Right after separating I took off my ring, gathered the rest of the gold, platinum & diamond jewelry my ex gave me and went straight to the jeweler he bought them from. Walked out with $6000. Second best decision I made!

After a 25 year marriage my 2 carat diamond and eternity band wedding ring sat in s safe for 12 years. One of my kids suggested that I should have it remounted and worn on my right hand. I took her advice and redesigned both rings. Love how they came out. They are no longer marriage related to me but two great rings.

To celebrate the finalisation of my divorce from the ex-husband who had 2 affairs and squandered our son’s education trust fund I traded up my 0.5 carat diamond engagement ring for a 5 carat cocktail ring with the jeweller who made the original engagement ring and held a party to celebrate the next chapter of my life. Two older divorced ladies said “Oh well should have had a party and bought ourselves new rings”. Do it for yourself sisters!

Not sure what to do… Divorce after 23 yrs my original engagement ring was picked out as a sapphire not even a diamond and was on clearance for $600 then after being 5 yrs married I worked at a jewelry store and decided to buy myself a diamond and matching did band so I got a nice set retail $6400 but I got it for $3200. Never received any gifts beyond a box of chocolates w stuffed toy and flowers on Valentine’s.. other than that no Christmas, Birthday or even just because .. felt very unappreciated bringing up 5 children… The final straw was finding out that although we both worked the mortgage was behind 5 yrs in payments. Time to move on and take back the reigns. Just have no idea where to begin.

Great ideas here, but I don’t seem to understand what I should do with my ring.
I’m still attached with it and I don’t think I’ll ever want to sell it.
Anyway, there are many horrible things that people do to their wedding ring after divorce.
I just don’t know why I’m still having the ring, after all I am the one who suffered!
May she be happy. Just this.

Hi Emma! I’m intrigued by your willingness to send your jewelry in the mail to these online places. How did you know they wouldn’t just keep the jewelry and you’d never hear from them again? Or that they would give you the correct amount owed to you from the sale? Did you have a contract or any other document agreeing to the terms of the sale? I know there are testimonies and endorsements on these sites but sending expensive jewelry via the mail to these sites seems so scary to me!

I checked out all the sites mentioned here, all have great BBB ratings and the shipments are indeed insured via FedEx – you can see this all yourself :)

Just read Tom’s comment, above. Tom, I can spot guys like you a mile away. Someone damaged you in your past. Your mommy, no doubt. So sorry. She produced a sow’s ear, and you can’t make a good husband out of a sow’s ear anyway.

When we got married we were broke and i chose to use what little $$$ we had for a down-payment on a condo instead of a ring. Never ever regretted it.

Like I always say, an engagement ring is nothing more than divorce insurance that your wife will cash in the second she has sex with your best friend. Best thing for guys in America is to NEVER get married. Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free? Even more when once you marry the woman she actually becomes the cow within a few years.

I was saving my ring after we divorced I didn’t know why just didn’t want to get rid of it. Then I decided I would make a necklace for my daughter with the diamond when she was older. However I never really put thought into how about getting rid of it and letting go correlate. Anyhow I ended up getting robbed of everything I own pretty much and that was one of the items because I did not have a safe box. Lesson learned in so many ways. But I am actually not sad about it now because when my daughter gets older I will make her, her own diamond necklace for graduation that has no ties to a broken marriage.

I’m in that situation currently. I was separated for four years out of our marriage, and now our divorce has been final for 2+ years. I wanted to save the ring for my daughter, but now look at it as a curse. The marriage that I had with her father, I’d never dream of passing it along to her. Now I want to get it out of my house and hopefully find some peace here as well with it gone.

My marriage ended about a year ago, divorced 10 months. I just decide what I am going to go with my engagement ring.
It is a single 1/2 cts with two 1/4 cta on either side. I and Turing the 1/4 cts into earnings and replacing them with the birth stone of each of my kids.
Can’t wait to find the right jewelry to do the work.

2 years after my divorce I trying to decide what to do with my wedding rings. The more I thought about it them more I kept hearing my mother say a woman should never waste a good diamond. I took the wedding set to a trustworthy and reliable jeweler and he sketched out a necklace using the diamonds. It turned out beautiful and I can pass the diamonds down to my daughter with a story behind it.

My engagement ring is beautiful and I miss wearing it. It’s been in my safety deposit box for a couple years now. With the trend of black diamonds and chocolate diamonds I decided to switch out the one carat center piece. I wear it on my right hand and it is stunning. I am very happy. I joke that it’s black like my heart. I may turn the original diamond into a necklace or save it for one of my kids.

I believe if the husband is the one who wanted the divorce then the wife should keep it. Then do what she wants with it.
But if the wife wants the divorce then she should give the ring back to the husband. I don’t see the wedding ring as a gift. I see it as a symbol of love, a way to show your commitment to loving each other “til death do us part”.
If you don’t want your husband, why do you want the ring he gave you? You end the marriage, return the ring.

I think it depends a great deal on why the marriage is ending and the general character/spirit of the marriage… Not just who files for the divorce.

Also, I see the wedding band as the symbol you described…. The engagement ring is kind of like a deposit or a warranty on a future together. Giver breaks the relationship/the future and loses the deposit. Recipient breaks the relationship/future and has to refund the deposit. Wedding bands, unless family heirlooms, should be kept by their respective parties to do with them as they wish.

I have been divorced for 14 years. My engagement and wedding ring are in a safe deposit box at the bank. My thought was always to give the engagement diamond to my oldest son and my diamond wedding band to my youngest son so they could use what they wanted to create the rings for their future wife. You have an interesting take on rings (one I can see and understand) -I never looked at my rings as carrying the “bad” that caused our divorce—always knew my kids were born out of love and associate rings with the good that once was. My sons are 20 and 19. I have no regrets in life. I would do it all the same way just to have my kids! I guess by the time my divorce was finalized I was content with knowing I gave my marriage my all and there was nothing I could do to save it (you can’t make someone want to stay when they want to go). I never looked back after divorce. Took me years before I ever thought of dating someone but I have been happily involved with someone for the past 7 years. My rings symbolize the good in my ex that produced my sons….not the bad in my ex that ended our marriage. Just my take on things—doesn’t make me right or wrong…just the way I choose to view it. Thank you for sharing your story on rings.

Thank you for posting that Sandra:
Some of the rest of what I see here stings. I have been divorced for two years, albeit not a decade yet, My ex wife and I share three young children and I struggle to build a more amicable co-parenting relationship. I have my band and she our her engagement and band…I bought all three. I wasn’t rich and am not now for sure, but every time I look at the band I think of the day we bought them, and the happy times that came after. never the arguments or the errors or the deep sadness that came after my ex wife walked out of the door of our home. I wore the ring in defiance and desperation through the first 8 months of my separation and then carried it bundled in boxes and a velvet bag for months after that–I was convinced that I would get to some place we had been that I would think was the perfect place to bury it…I couldn’t bring myself to letting go of it, and what had failed in that way…I certainly cannot see myself selling it anymore than I could see myself carving off a chunk of my heart and selling that because she had been attached to that in some bad way. I’m not exactly sure what I will do with it,but I am certain that in some way, it will be stuck with me, and I it for the duration that I bought intended it for…Aren’t the lessons we get from our walk through life, those painful and those joyous worthy of a token reminder now and again. shouldn’t we be humbled by our shortcomings and treasure the joy that paralleled it…No life experience will ever sit in the same place as within my heart, mind or soul as cradling a women I was deeply enamored with between my legs, peering over her shoulder with my arms encircling her and her hands in mind squeezing together as our son was born…IM KEEPING MY RING!

Thank you for sharing this. It is a deeply personal decision… If my pieces carried such deep, positive memories of the shared journey, I would feel the same. Mine, though, are reminders of how aline I was during some of the most painful experiences during our marriage and I can’t keep reliving that. But had the birth of our son, or raising him, and such things been truly shared experiences, even if the marriage ultimately ended, I’d hold on to my engagement ring and wedding band…

Thank you for this post. I have been divorced for 2 years now and my rings are sitting in a box in the closet. My engagement ring and wedding ring were from my grandmother and I feel so torn. I adore the rings and my grandparents, but they just bring me such heartache.

I went to the exact middle of the Golden Gate Bridge, and threw my wedding band over the edge into the water. Apparently a friend told me that is what a lot of people do from the bay area after they divorce. However, I did have the stones removed and made into a beautiful necklace that I designed myself. I chose to keep it because hey, I did get my children from this period of my life, so it wasn’t all bad…

Address shock of retail versus wholesale (which you may very well be selling it back for). I otherwise sold it because I felt like a fraud. R that he still had some control that I wasn’t even aware of. Let it go. I cried at the store. So many triggers. And it was so cold and symbolic while they undid the prongs, to identify and weigh it.

I kept the main diamond to turn into a necklace or ring from my daughter when she turns 16. Although my marriage went sour, I have no regrets because I have two beautiful children. She needs to know that she was wanted and loved and that for a very long time, we were happy.

I sold the small diamonds and gold, along with some other gold pieces to earn money to revamp my master bedroom and bathroom after the divorce. I kept the house and couldn’t wait to make it my own. I have no regrets in selling my ring. By the way, sold his ring for cash, too, since he left it here.

I held onto my engagement and wedding rings for about a year after my divorce. At first I wanted to pawn them or do Cash4Gold but I wasn’t going to get much. Both rings were 14 K white gold and 1/4 CT diamonds. I would have been lucky to get $100 for both. But since both rings were bought at and registered with Kays Jewelry I talked to them and they gave me a great deal. Just for my engagement ring they gave me $700 credit toward a $1400 purchase. So when my new man and I decided to get married, I picked out my new engagement ring and paid for half of it with my old one! Some people may not agree with it but I think it was a great investment!

Seems to me if a man gives an engagement ring to the woman he marrys and they later get divorced then she should return the ring to him along with the wedding ring or as a minimum sell them both and split the proceeds

I have been reading through the comments and feel bad for you, Gary. It sounds like you’ve had some really bad experiences with women who took advantage of you. I care about that. It seems you’re reaching conclusions that all the women sharing their stories here are also taking advantage of their exes. Maybe some of them have. My husband sold some very precious possessions of his to buy me a spectacular diamond ring for our engagement. We had some difficulty in our marriage before he passed away two years ago. Had we ended our marriage I would not have given the ring back to him (he absolutely never would have asked for it) but I wouldn’t have been able to sell it either because we always deeply loved one another, even during our hardest times. Not everyone has such fortune. Surely you can see that for some it may be very healing emotionally to eliminate a symbol of their crushed dreams especially when the split is not amicable? And in some of these examples women have stated that they needed the money the sale of the ring provided. Unless a woman has broken an engagement or otherwise been egregiously responsible for the marriage dissolution it doesn’t seem intuitive to me that she’d be obliged to return the ring. We all have to take our own path and do the best we can. I think that’s what the majority of the women who have shared here have done.

I have an engagement ring that I want to sell 18K thick white gold band 1.54ct D/SI2 EGL certified brilliant solitaire. Any ideas, where to sell my ring in Dallas?

I have a beautiful canary diamond w platium band 4 carats from my long term marriage. Now my new guy wants to use it to buy me an engagement ring. My guy does not need the money he just IMO being cheap! Now I’m rethinking on if to even to stay with him. Just makes me feel like I’m not worthy .

My second ex husband used the diamond from my first engagement ring as a down payment on the ring he gave me. Then we were saddled with a 12 month ring payment at $450/ month after we got married so I really contributed to most of this ring. Not to mention he admittedly had an affair within the first 8 months of our marriage while I was 6 months pregnant with our daughter. I chose to stay for many reasons (not playing the victim here but I did choose to sit tight, knowing I would eventually get out of this) and focused on my health, pregnancy and other child. Every day I looked at that ring and it meant nothing to me so I can’t believe I STILL have it in my damn jewelry box?! It’s been 2 years since our DIE-Vorce & he’s already remarried with an infant! What am I thinking?
Thanks for the article Emma! The sell of this tainted ring has now moved to top priority! A male friend of mine told me to sell it a while back as he happily sold his, right after HE threw his Mont Blanc pen that he’d signed his divorce papers with off a bridge & into the Chattahoochee River (Atlanta).
Also, knowing the markup & that I probably won’t get much, ( WE paid $6500) so perhaps what little ROI I do get will help me fund a vacation! I need a trip to London to see a great friend/single mom who just moved there & will give me a tour/free place to stay & loads of laughter! Cheers damn it!

A canary can easily be worn as a right hand ring or used in a new piece. That you posted your dilemma here makes me think if you let him trade it in to pay for your new ring that the new ring will carry that negativity with it. I wouldn’t let him have it.
