Have five rings given to me over my 20 years of marriage by my current husband who walked out on our family 8 weeks ago to live with his mistress we were unaware of... I no longer wear any of them because of the affiliation of the giver ( and the subsequent secrets and lies associated with him which have since come to light) None are especially valuable- not vintage or the koh-in- noor in size. Just high street, but once emotionally valuable...now tainted by the truths revealed. Hive wisdom needed. Options Keep and give to children in bequest Have them remodelled into something new ( advice required) Sell? And buy something for myself as a positive act Sell? And spend money on a weekend away with the kids. Keep them because I might later regret selling them Keep them in case I need to pay a bill now he's gone.
I'm in a similar position. I've decided to sell all but my wedding ring (so my daughter can see it when she grows up and know that once her parents did love each other) and then spend a little on a piece of jewellry for me and put a little away for a rainy day
