You can try eBay.

I've had this same dilemma for a couple of years now. I am just hoarding my Tiffany's jewelry despite the fact that I will never wear any of it again!
My thought has been to give it to some of my younger cousin (she is in her early teens), though I haven't acted upon it yet. I really don't want to pawn it or eBay it. She doesn't have to know who it was from and the history behind it -- just that I don't wear it anymore. My other thought was to donate it to a charitable cause which would then use to the profits for their organization.

I have the same problem. Funny, I wonder how many of us are in this, erm, predicament.

The charity idea is a good one! Thanks! I have some stuff to get rid of also and I would have never thought of that. :o)

You can also try www.outofyourlife.com. They send you a pre-paid 'break up box" LOL!
|Auction? on Jun 02, 2009 @ 02:07 pm|
There are some very reputable auction companies. It's good quality, so I think you would get a reasonable price for it. With the cash you get back for your pieces...you could use some for savings, charity and/or for a new piece as a gift to yourself.

I gave all my stuff away to charity. I didn't sell it and give the money or anything... I just gave everything to charity.
The only things I kept were letters he wrote me, poems he gave me (which I later learned weren't written by him, but that's another story :-/ ), cd's he gave me, cards, etc..... i was so in love with this guy, when he would scribble his name, or my name, or draw (he had the habit of drawing a single rose) on something (even tissue paper), I used to keep it...so I kept those too.
But anything that had monetary value, I donated to charity.

I would be nervous giving anything valuable like that to charity, but I suppose it depends on the charity. I would rather sell it and then give the money to charity. I have kept all the jewelry past boyfriends gave me, I have no issues wearing them, but none of them are terribly expensive (I kept the boyfriend who gives me the good loot! lol). I actually know a few women at work who are in this predicament with ex-husbands - they don't know what to do with their old wedding bands and engagement rings. Pawning it seems weird after spending decades with the person who gave it to you. I will pass on that website!
I think giving it to younger cousins is a great idea. Good quality jewelry deserves to be worn!
