How You Can Pawn Your Wedding Ring After a Divorce

February 12, 2020 - Jewelry & Luxury Items

There’s an average of 876,000 divorces a year.

Whether you’re in the beginning stages, the middle of, or already finalized your divorce, there are likely still a lot of questions you are asking yourself. One of them being, what are you going to do with your wedding rings?

Wedding rings symbolize love, eternity, and promises. Why hold onto something that will bring you sadness and reminders of those things broken?

You may not be ready to do anything other than stuff them in a drawer until you’ve healed more, emotionally and mentally, and that’s okay!

Once you’re ready to consider what to do with them, think of the option to pawn wedding rings. You may not be familiar with pawning, or you may be skeptical. Luckily, we have tips on why you should pawn your wedding ring after a divorce.

Read on to figure out if pawning is for you, and reasons it is a smart option.

Getting a Divorce is Expensive

Despite your differences, there is one thing you and your new ex will have in common and that’s paying for divorce attorneys. Between splitting up your assets, moving out, and possibly paying for child support, divorces aren’t cheap – the average divorce costs about $15,000.

Deciding to pawn wedding rings will give you financial stability during the divorce process or even afterward, giving you a chance to catch your breath.

Emotional Attachments

Whether you wore the rings for a year or over 30 years, you become emotionally attached to them. They hold sentimental value, even after the marriage has gone sour.

Sticking them in a home safe or in your sock drawer may follow the “out of sight, out of mind” mentality, but keeping them nearby won’t help you get over the divorce or your ex anytime soon.

Pawning or selling your wedding rings will put some extra cash in your pocket or help you pay some bills while ridding you of those emotional attachments.
