    You could probably start a thread: "Dumbest thing I ever did as a husband."

    It can't possibly be a good idea.

    Not enough gold in it to make it worth your time.

    Re: Gold is sky high. Should I sell my wedding ring?

    It's funny that you mention this because my mother just called and said that she took a couple of necklaces into some place in CR. She said they were all bent up and hadn't worn them in years. At this point I'm thinking "NO MOM DON'T!". She got $500 for 2 necklaces.

    I immediately started searching through some boxes that I thought would have some good jewelry. Both were 10K gold, which I assume isn't worth crap. My class ring is also 10K. Can I assume that 10K is worth 1/2 of 14K?

    He's married. I'm betting his chances are the same if he did sell the ring.

    Actually you should buy some gold and sell it in five years when its $5000-$8000 per ounce. No I'm not kidding either.

    Yes, sell the ring. I want you to document the aftermath though.

    Gold being this high is no good for folks looking to get married. My marriage is in a few months, and we both still have yet to get our wedding bands. Shouldn't have waited...
