How to Reinvest the Money You Get from Selling Your Wedding Ring

Posted on

Marriages sometimes come to an end for many reasons. Sometimes it is sad, but it always makes way for a new beginning. No matter what your divorce settlement was like, one of the things that you are likely to walk away with is your wedding jewelry. For women, this often includes the engagement ring and the wedding band. If you want an influx of cash or if you want to get rid of your ring, one of the best ways to go about it is to take off any stones and sell the gold for cash. Here are some ways to reinvest the money from selling your ring to make a new start for yourself. 

Invest in educational classes

Marriage often comes with compromise, but being single comes with the ability to do as you feel is best for yourself. If you have wanted to go back to school for anything or take furthering educational classes in your interests, the perfect time is right after your divorce. Whether you are getting a master's degree in business or education for at-home jewelry making, you will be able to do what you have wanted for a long time. Educational investment increases your ability to make money, making it a quality investment. 

Refurnish your place

Carrying old furniture means carrying old memories. Get rid of all of the furniture that you came out of the marriage with through sales and by donating the rest of it. Reclaim your life and your own new space with newly purchased furniture. After you sell your gold band, you will be able to pick out furniture sets that align with the theme of your new place, rather than looking like it did during your former marriage. Changing your surrounding can help get you into a new, independent frame of mind. 

Change your look

Making a physical change is often the spark for making a change in your overall life. After you sell your gold, take the extra income and get a makeover. Change your hair cut or color to a style that you have always wanted to try. Revamp your wardrobe with a week's worth of new pieces, including dress-up clothing to go out in at night or on the weekend. A change in your appearance will lead to a change in your demeanor, which will lead to a change in your view of your new life. An exciting new life starts with an exciting new look.
