We've already established what should be done with all of the fancy undergarments you purchased while with your ex after your breakup, but what about all the expensive jewelry? It may be tempting to throw your ring into the ocean a la "Titanic," but there are a couple of web sites that may actually allow you to make some profit off your heartbreak.
The Orlando based Ex-Cessories.com allows heartbroken exes to place jewelry up for online auction and features everything from a $1,975 diamond and emerald tennis bracelet to a $4,204, 1.5 carat diamond engagement ring. The web site's co-founder Allison Wasserman even has a personal piece of jewelry listed on the site.
"I'm thinking of all the tears it generated," Wasserman tells the Orlando Sentinel. "When it does sell, I'll be excited. I'll be thinking of the cash it'll generate."
Another web site, ExboyfriendJewelry.com, has a section called "For the Boys," where jilted boyfriends can unload unwanted gifts, as well as a page called "Good Karma Fund" where sellers can opt to donate the profits of their sale to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
We wonder what all of the gift givers would think of these sites. [Orlando Sentinel]
