Do You Need a Divorce Ring?


If you're a woman going through a divorce in Pasadena, you may have heard some of your friends talking about buying divorce rings. A wedding ring symbolizes the day you said, "I do." A divorce ring symbolizes the day you said, "I don't."

Divorce rings have gotten a lot of press in recent years, but the trend isn't entirely new. In the 1920s, for example, English women would have a jeweler put a notch on their wedding ring to indicate their change in marital status.

Today a divorce ring can be a ring you purchase for yourself to commemorate the start of your new life as a single person. Another option would be to refashion the stones from your wedding ring and other jewelry from your former spouse into a new setting, although you should keep in mind that many people who have children from their marriage decide to keep their wedding rings to give to the children when they reach adulthood.

Divorce rings are usually more of a personal symbol than a formal statement about your divorce, so almost any ring design that you really like can serve as a divorce ring. However, divorce rings are often silver, white gold, or platinum to represent the phrase, "Every cloud has a silver lining." The rings often have a personally meaningful inscription on the inside, such as the word "Endure" and the date your divorce was finalized.

While a divorce ring can't completely erase the emotional trauma of ending your marriage, treating yourself to something to symbolize the next chapter of your life can do wonders for your mental health.
