What do you do with your rings post divorce?

Its a serious question that near on a third of the population will someday ask. I myself have some stunning Hardy Brothers diamond rings in a draw, completely useless!

Yes I was married once upon a time (total disaster), and now like so many other, really have no clue what to do with these rings. There are the obvious choices of course:

  1. Throw them into the ocean.

    A time honored tradition for the scorned ex wife (that I was). Therapeutically this sounds like a beautiful release! But I can’t bring myself to waste $10k worth of gold and diamonds!

  2. Sell them.

    I tried. Honestly I’m not sure there is a platform adequate enough for selling second hand wedding rings and pawn brokers will rip you off completely! (Don’t bother) Mine are still listed on eBay but you have to be on guard for scammers. There are many.

  3. Melt them down into something new.

    Definitely a viable thought, but do you really want that karma still? I dunno to me there is still some horrid thought of the experience that is associated with them.

You see there’s no completely easy solution. They’re just beauty that you don’t want to look at or wear, tucked in a drawer never to be appreciated again. It’s a sad tale for diamonds really…

If you have a solution, I’d love to hear it! x

Okay ladies, lets face it, Pandora are over priced and overrated. I get the emotional attachment to charms, but honestly… pandora are just beads with a rather horrifying mark up. Here in Australia they pretty much made their own market and had no real competitors for SOOOOO long.

I highly recommend you all expand your horizons, save yourself (and your husbands) a considerable amount of money, and indulge in a MUCH more fabulous, meaningful range! Alex and Ani, my new personal addiction, have finally brought their range of eco-conscious jewellery and accessories, created to positively empower and connect humanity, to Australia.

Love, Love, Love

Symbols, birth stones and numerology throughout history have held meanings, personally relevant to individuals. Here are some of my personal favourites, produced by Alex and Ani to empower, inspire and protect the wearer.



One of the oldest mystical symbols in the world, the Ouroboros signifies the great circle of life, representing infinity and the cyclical nature of the universe. Believed to depict the great alchemical union of masculine and feminine energy, it holds the spark of creation itself.



In Old English, “godspeed” was the word one said to bless someone embarking on a journey. The expression bestows good fortune and safety, with God’s grace. Magically sincere, godspeed is the desire to have God’s protection alongside your path.



Rising from its ashes, the Phoenix is an emblem of immortality. Reflecting transformation, the mythical firebird contains the breath of life and is fearless as it bursts into flames. Consider the magical power of the Phoenix as you ignite the passion in your soul and reveal your true essence.
