“After my divorce, I took my engagement ring to CashCo,” says Susan*. “I had been struggling with the idea of selling the ring. However, CashCo’s certified gemologists quoted me a very good price for it”.

All things considered, Susan discovered we also have jewelry for sale here at CashCo, and it’s always 50% off retail. Next, she fell in love with Tiffany & Co pendant.

“So first, while I was there at CashCo, I sold my engagement ring. Then, I walked to the jewelry section of the store and bought the Tiffany pendant. That pendant, to me, was the symbol of new beginning.”

Since she got plenty of cash for her engagement ring, and the pendant was not as expensive, she left CashCo with money in her wallet -and a new feeling of freedom. “That money helped me with other divorce expenses”, she added.

Is it Legal to Sell Jewelry During a Divorce?

Similarly, everything either bought or earned during the marriage by a couple is considered a “marital asset” and will be a part of the property settlement. If those items are sold, the value of that item will need to be divided.

Finally, to avoid legal problems, sell jewelry or gold for cash only after reaching a settlement and when the divorce is final. CashCo offers appraisal services, which are sometimes mandated by law.
