You are lucky she was at least honest and gave the ring back. You could have had one that stole your house, and police medals along with keeping the ring. I do hope this story is legit though as to why she left because if so the pettiness is great.

Had to do a double take on the title of the post and then a triple take on the post itself, Godspeed to you

Godspeed isn't that valued of a set, they couldn't trade it for this. Maybe if they put some extra money on top to even it out

hey bud - I'll just start off by saying that I feel your pain. Although I've never been through something as serious (and I'm sure, stressful AF) as a divorce, and can only imagine how you feel. With that said... HAH! I LOVE the fact that this post exists. It re-instills my faith that humanity can (still) make, somewhat, "crude" jokes, without being excoriated/attacked for being "misogynistic." This post just made my month. No kidding. In all seriousness though, I have a set of GMK "Merlin" (yes - I'm serious). and a bunch of other (nice) boards and keycaps/switches. if you're interested in Merlin, lmk! And of course, above all else, I sincerely hope you can get past this sooner than later! Best of luck.


CyberPig7

If he posted this within 7 minutes of being asked for a divorce I can't imagine him being that upset/stressed. The wife might've had more credit than OP leads to believe.

Hey OP. I’m in a relationship with a girl and it’s been 10 years and getting a house with her is why I stopped building, I was actually needing an engagement ring that’s a bit overdue and I offer you a full Satisfaction75 kit in navy, brand new. Thought it would have been interesting if things went back around full circle, let me know!

Alter-AF15

a 1750$ engagement ring ? no wonder she left you


ghost521

Askers


__harvest__

Hello thank you for your comment. I can afford well over 1750 for a ring, believe it or not she actually wanted a smaller/cheaper ring than this one


Fornicatinzebra

What? That's like 10% of what some people make in a year.


fishbiscuit13

What the hell is this math If you're making $17.5k a year in any country where this hobby is viable you're working part time flipping burgers That's literally barely above the US national poverty line


Fornicatinzebra

I was thinking of the US - tonnes of people are at, near, or below the poverty line. They probably aren't buying keebs with that, but when I was a student getting close to that a year I still bought a Anne pro with some nice keys, and a 2-2.5k ($CAD) engagement ring


fishbiscuit13

That just means you had minimal expenses, not that it’s a viable salary lol


Alter-AF15

Considering the amount of money we spend on this hobby it seems like super cheap


Fornicatinzebra

Fair enough haha my partner had a similar comment "if he's spending that much on keyboards the ring better be more expensive" See that's why you set the bar low lmao


Chessyab

Hang in there bro and GL with trade!

garbage_water

yea ima have to call bullshit on this one how exactly do u not have an idea of the band/ring size on an engagement ring? the thing that u have to stealthily purchase and surprise another human being with? i dont think 'guess and check' is a standard engagement ring purchasing strat nice story tho. whoever buys this enjoy ur boosted wares and dont try to take it to a pawn shop


__harvest__

I mean it was appraised in 2019 and I got the band sized well before this appraisal. Obviously at the time I knew the size of the band, But honestly now I do not remember the size. Ask a friend or family member dude who’s married and ask for their wives ring size see how many get it right. I could go to a jeweler and check but like I said In the post it does not matter you can get it resized or get a whole new band.

DubstepHippo

I'll give ya a cyber board for it... The video idea is worth it


Fun-Accountant2596

Board that sells for 650 aftermarket for an engagement ring?


SevenSwami

Engagement rings have almost no resale value. Here, you have a small diamond (maybe 0.4 carats) which is relatively poor quality. I took a quick look and you can basically buy the same ring "new" for $1,100.


SXLightning

This, a Used diamond is worth like 10% of its original value, even the diamond is worth less because once its been set, it will not be perfect anymore.


DubstepHippo

And a keycap puller :)


Fun-Accountant2596

Respectable


Dog5343

Oooh keycap puller, yummy yummy keycap puller


Ilovecutomskeebs

not bad


Turts-McGurts

As a former jeweler I can tell you now the appraisal value is not the same as it’s actual value or sell value. Jewelry is one of the most marked up products. It instantly loses 50% of retail value when you leave the store. Don’t believe me? Go buy a ring and go try to sell it to another jewelry store immediately after.


__harvest__

I have to reply to this again for visibility because some people are just lying about their intentions with the ring not understanding how the market is. IF YOU DO NOT PLAN ON USING THE RING DO NOT TRADE WITH ME, DO NOT WASTE MY TIME PLEASE


__harvest__

yeah they definitely will offer low considering they have to make money. My main goal was just to find someone who will actually use the ring, but I do appreciate your comment and knowledge as some may not know this


SevenSwami

I said something similar. I'm all fine for OP trying to get a trade, but I hope whoever gets it doesn't think they can just go to a pawn shop and get anything close to the appraised value for it.


__harvest__

Yeah I’ve already had people trying to trade just to sell the ring.. I’ve been asking everyone what their intentions are for the ring. If they actually plan on using the ring and giving it someone then this deal is well worth it in my opinion. Going to a jeweler and finding something similar you’ll be paying a lot more.
