Engagement Ring

If you’re selling an engagement ring, chances are there’s some emotional baggage attached and any money you get might feel like a bonus—which is good because you probably won’t get much. While pre-owned rings are selling from about $1,000 to $20,000 on sites like I Do Now I Don’t and Have You Seen the Ring, you’ll likely only recoup a fraction—perhaps as low as 20 percent—of the original purchase price. 

When you buy a ring from a jeweler, you’re not just paying for the jewelry itself—you’re also covering the cost of other materials, labor, marketing and even the store’s operating costs.
