You can sell them. Use the money to have some fun. Do they evoke a lot of pain? If so, get rid of them. Still fond of your ex? Keep them in memory of him. :) If you don't want to keep them and don't want to sell them either, I have a good idea for you. Take them to a good jewelers and use the same material to create a new piece of jewelry for yourself. Cheers and happy mylotting.

The best solution is following your heart.

When I divorced I kept my rings. I will give them to my children eventually but for now they are a reminder never ever ever get married again. I think people who marry the second time are either very brave or very foolish. I mean if you can't pick the right person the first time around what makes you think you will the second time around.

I think it's all up to yourself. If you think the wedding ring will not influence your future life, you can put the ring in the drawer, and the ring has no significance for you. If you think the ring will bad for your future life, especially your future parterner will be angery with the ring, I think maybe you should sell the ring.

I've heard that many people pawn them, especially when the marriage ended particularly badly, but I'm not sure I would/could do that, because I'm too sentimental =P I would probably keep them for sentimental reason or to pass down if I had children... But maybe eventually I still would come to the conclusion of selling them =P Who knows... I've worn my mother's wedding and engagement rings since she and my father divorced about 18 months ago =)

You could either keep them for sentimental value. Keep them to pass down to your children when they get married. Or if you don't want to keep them then you could sell them or pawn them.
