Answered at great length, by the community, and I'm sure that most of the answers here will be useful, and applicable, to your situation.

You might have had more answers by now if you'd been more descriptive in your original question, by the way.

first make sure you got rid of the ex's body real good. any wild boars around your way?

second, shop it around. ask what the sellers would pay for it. also, although the link that @shrdlu posted includes a murder story from posting it on Craigslist, why not try posting it on Craigslist as a "name your price" and see what responses you get? no obligation on either person's part IMO, you don't even have to reply, just get responses.

If it makes you feel better, my exwife pawned her $3500 ring for $150. Have fun!

$50-75. Used engagement rings, you take a big hit.

Depending on where you live, you might get a better response if you call it "recycled".

as Shrdlu said, you really needa better descriptions. 3 Cs - cut, clarity, carat. Using those parameters determines price. Using the accepted criteria means that a 1/8 carat perfect diamond can far exceed a 1/2 carat in value.

@sarafaye22: Also, I meant to add that there are two appraisals to consider. The one would be issued by the jeweler for HIS replacement cost for you to use for insurance purposes if you schedule the item. The second one would be what it should sell for. Color I should probably be a bit on the dark side, clarity I2 means that there are inclusions that are most likely visible to the eye. Perhaps you can find an independent jeweler who also makes jewelry to see what they would give you for it. They would then use the stones in one of their created pieces. Good luck.

Sell here:
http://www.exboyfriendjewelry.com/

Description from their website:
Welcome to EXBOYFRIENDJEWELRY.COM - a site where you can buy/sell/trade and blog about all of those little painful reminders in your jewelry box that make you wonder “what did I ever see in him?" You set your own price. You get it off your chest and out of your sight. Just because you don’t want it, doesn’t mean somebody else isn’t dying for it. Everyone’s a winner! Maybe you love him, maybe you never want to speak to him again, but either way, you’re ready to move on and make a little rent money in the process (insert “wink” icon here). Here’s the story, you don’t want it and he can’t have it back (insert another “wink” icon here, and then stop winking, seriously).

I strongly recommend trying http://www.haveyouseenthering.com/Sell-Engagement-Rings.aspx
They have been around for a few years and are BBB accredited. I had my diamond ring listed for around 4 weeks and sold it for almost 70% of the original price I paid for it. They are probably the most trusted site that allows regular people to sell engagement rings. Their homepage is http://www.haveyouseenthering.com
