OK I need advice

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
One year for Valentines day DH got me a ruby heart shaped necklace, ring, and earrings. I don't wear them, I'm not a big jewlery person. So this weekend I'm having a garage sale and thought about selling the jewelry. DH said he doesn't care but then I thought someday if I had a daughter I could give them to her. Should I save them or sell them?

If they are real rubies, keep them. Rubies are more expensive than diamonds and I definitely wouldn't put them in a garage sale.

I agree. Keep them. You could always hand them down to a niece if you don't end up having any children or someone who is important to you.

I'm pretty sure they are lab created rubies. I know DH didn't spend too much money on them and if real rubies are expensive then these would have cost a lot.

Perhaps you could try to sell them on craigslist??

I would keep the gift. You just never know you may want to pass them along someday. My grandma kept every piece of jewelry fake or real and now her jewelry chest is in her will to be left to me and I feel very fortunate. If it were a sweater or a pair of socks I'd say sell them but something like that can hold meaning to someone down the road.

So true!

If the boyfriend didn't "pay a lot", then you know they aren't real. You won't get much for them.

I would keep them just in case

I've decided to keep them. They are special just in the fact that they were one of the first V day gifts DH gave to me.

Awww...good choice. I was going to ask if it was a "special" VD gift (like one of the firsts) or if it was "here, happy Valentine's day" kind of gifts. If you are emotionally attached then I agree keeping them is the best idea!
