Sadly, for many reasons, some marriages simply aren’t meant to be. There are often early obstacles to overcome when it comes to truly moving on and though divorce signals the end of a marriage, it can also be seen as the start of a new chapter. Moving on as a divorcee can be emotionally disruptive, and can sometimes mean a changing financial situation. When all’s said and done, there are many ways in which you can work towards closure, as well as seeing some return along the way. For example, you can streamline your assets so that they are suitable for your new status. As a simple start, you can sell you old wedding ring.
Start your new chapter with a helping hand
Selling a wedding ring doesn’t have to be, by any means, as dramatic as it sounds. It is not a statement, or a reaction, but a logical path for something that no longer holds the meaning that it once did. Sure, your wedding ring was a symbol of your union but any memories that you wish to hold on to will still live on, whether you have a physical reminder or not.
Your old wedding ring is most likely made from a precious material like gold or platinum and might even feature precious stones such as diamond or sapphire – all of which hold a high value. No longer being married usually means no longer wearing your wedding ring, and so that precious piece of jewellery is simply made redundant. Rather than leaving it sitting in a box, why not put it to better use – while gaining something in return?
If you were to sell your wedding ring, you are not only set to benefit from its value, but you are also giving it a new lease of life. Arguably, the most important step you are taking is signifying the beginning of your new chapter.
