Hanging Onto An Unwanted Engagement Ring? Sell It Online!

The relationship is over, so now what do you do with the French-set, 18-karat diamond engagement ring you've been wearing for the last six months? Do you give it back? Pawn it? Throw it in the East River?
Entrepreneur Josh Opperman is hoping you'll bring it to him.
Opperman is the guy behind I Do…Now I Don't, a new online auction site for people to buy, and sell, those "like new" engagement rings. He came up with the idea after he came home one day to find that his fiancée — a woman he thought was the "love of [his] life" — had moved out of their shared apartment, leaving her ring behind. He thought selling the ring would be a great way to move on, but when he took the ring to a jeweler, he was offered only a third of what he'd paid for. "I assumed I would get a 'haircut' off the price, but at least receive a decent offer," he writes on his site. But, "rather than get mad I decided to break even."
In Opperman's mind, money can't buy you love or happiness, but it certainly doesn't hurt. And, gathering from the various site testimonials, selling these sparklers can help kick-start the healing process. (The site also offers jilted lovers the chance to sell their unwanted wedding dresses and wedding bands, too.) Plus, Opperman says he found his own happy ending. This past August, he married "the real love of [his] life." Congrats, and many happy returns. [Daily Mail]
