Woman Calls Off Wedding Sells £13,500 Engagement Ring On Facebook
After calling off her wedding, a woman caused controversy by listing her £13,500 engagement ring for sale on Facebook Marketplace. The Australian woman claimed that although her partner had given her a one-carat diamond ring from Tiffany, it had now been put up for sale for “obvious reasons.”
In light of the fact that she had only recently started wearing the expensive ring, she listed it for £10,000, a considerable discount. Despite the savings, there was a heated argument in the comments about whether she ought to return the ring to her ex-partner.
The woman posted on Facebook as follows, “Selling this for obvious reasons. I do, now I don’t.
“Compare to current Tiffany pricing of a 1.0 Carat ring at $23,600, I am letting go of this beauty at $18,500. Condition is close to brand new – never worn much.
“Sorry no receipt as I didn’t buy it obviously. Bank transfers only.”
The woman received a flood of feedback after putting the advertisement online, with some suggesting that she return the ring and one adding that there might even be legal ramifications.
Following her actions reactions and comments have been sparked.
One user wrote: “If he paid for it, it’s his and he should get all the money.”
And another said: “Legally you can’t sell this and have to give it back if you didn’t proceed with the marriage.”
But others disagreed, saying the woman was within her rights to sell the ring.
One added: “Not true – it’s considered a gift and it’s hers.”
Then a fourth user contributed: “Good for you for keeping it. It’s absolutely beautiful.”
But other users were concerned the sale might be a scam, as there was no receipt or certificate of authenticity with the ring.
On another similar news, a jilted woman who celebrated her wedding day alone after her would-be husband abandoned her said she still had hope after receiving a phone at 2am stating that he had left.
When her four-year partner Kallum Norton, 24, did not show up for the wedding reception, Kayley Stead, 27, bravely continued the festivities.
In spite of experiencing what must have been severe heartbreak, Kayley celebrated on September 15 at Oxwich Bay Hotel in Gower, Swansea, Wales, with her loved ones close by. As a result, her story went viral.
She continued with her wedding entrance, lunch, speeches, dances, and even posed for professional photos without the groom thanks to the support of her bridal party and family.
She has since told a tale of how she was still hopeful until she received a call from her mother at two in the morning informing her that Kallum had vanished.
