What, you're just going to post the ring without the story? Every ring has a story.

Once upon a time, in a land far away, a little ring was made. It was shiny white gold with seven stones, three diamonds and four sapphires. Eventually it ended up on the hand of a very pretty American who dumped the guy who gave it to her. After the ring sat in a drawer for a couple of years she decided to get rid of it. The end.

Romantic, huh?

Does it have any special powers?

Yes, it's unsellable.

I'll give you $60 bucks for it. I can use it for arts and crafts.

A very cunning plan... make a man fall in love with you, get engaged, sell the ring on ebay, dump the man, repeat.

Yes. Especially the "dump the man" part. His exosets were stronger than mine. At least that's what he told me.

What'd he tell you, roo?

He told me mind the gap and then he threw mamma from the train.

Seriously, Spizz, I did offer to return it. He insisted I not. Don't know what difference it makes now. I can't seem to get any money for the damn thing and I don't think I'll wear it. *Sigh* Maybe I'll donate it to a charitable cause.

I bet it would work well as a fishing lure. It's nice and shiny and would jiggle when you reel it in. You'd have to rig up a hook somehow.

If nothing else you've got the parts for a nice pair of earings and matching pendant.

Excellent advice, dag. I should take up fishing. With those tall wader boots that the men wear in the river. Fly fishing, I think it is...

Worldgineer, I thought of that.

If you don't donate it, I reckon you should keep it stored away somewhere. You'll dig it up one day when sorting your house out, and you'll think of old times.

If old times aren't your thing, I reckon you should put it in a dish alongside some chunks of meat, and leave the dish in your garden. A fox/coyote/jackal will eat the contents of the plate, and then do a poo somewhere far away. The guy who’s ring it was will stand in a poo one day, and he’ll think “darn it, why’d I have to go ‘en stand in some doggawn poop?” He’ll inspect his shoe and see the ring sticking out one of tiny mounds of fox/coyote/jackal poo, and he’ll think about old times.

I can hear it in my head right now: "Who wants to buy-yi-yi this diamond ri-hi-hi-hing. He kicked me in the har-har-heart; now it doesn't mean a thi-hi-hi-hing. [modulate here] This diamond ring doesn't shine for me any more, and this diamond ring...."
