Coin shops will usually buy them for their gold value.

How many wedding rings do you have?

I agree with the above poster. Coin shops will usually pay you the pennyweights worth in gold. They will weigh them, probably factor in an assay cost, determine the karat of the gold...percentage of gold to alloys..10K, 14K, 18K, and then pay you for the gold.

The diamonds...well you can get them appraised (that will cost you money, but you will receive documentation as to the color, weight, cut, and clarity) and try to sell them...best bet is a dealer, but they won't give you even close to what they are valued. They need to resell them and make a profit.

You could try a consignment sale if you can find a jewelry shop that does that, or you could try Ebay, or even advertise them in the newspapers.

Don't be disappointed but what you will eventually part with them for far less than you would like. Such is the nature of selling unwanted or used jewelry.

why don't you return it to the guy who bought it for you? It is his anyways. I am sure you don't need the money.

Used diamonds have no value at all unless they are over 1 carat andinvestment quality. The concept that diamons are valuable is a scap. They have mountains of them stokcpied in Russia. Small diamonds and chips have no value, ear jewlry stores sell them for thousands. You are paying for the assembly into a ring and for the various levels of marketing.

No kidding. Diamond rings are the biggest waste of money ever. You can sell them though to some unsuspecting victim like on ebay.

What else is a twenty something year old couple going to do with twenty grand?

They can put a down payment on a house
They can save for their retirement.
They can save for their future children's education.
They can buy furniture for their home.

Or, they can have a four hour party.
