When you go to a pwn (spelled correctly) shop they simply give you a value based on the weight of the gold, plus a small fraction of what the stone is worth.

They look at the worst case scenario, which is, if they buy your ring, and no one else wants it, how can they get out of it? They have to melt it down, sell the gold, and sell the stones to a wholesaler.. soo, the price they give you on the stone is below wholesale cost so that they can sell it to them if worse comes to worse, same thing with the gold weight too.

No I'm with you 100%, the quote in that picture was actually what Nikki had said to me about two posts prior, about myself, so I put up a picture of her in a bikini and that saying to 'get back'. It wasn't directed towards the O.P at all and I apologise if it seemed that way.

Breaking up is a hard thing to go through, especially when you get to the point of being engaged/married. I hate to see anyone go through that.

You two have some catching up to do if you want the record... 8 years, 4 kids, 2 houses and 3 motorcycles have passed through since we got engaged, and have yet to walk down the aisle :P

All I know without going through my receipts and stuff is, It's a cubic zirconia with blue sapphires. The band is white gold.

Here's what the description says on my sales receipt. 18KW Semi Eng. Ring All Rounds -.11Ct TW No idea what all that means.
