Philadelphia Inquirer article “Bye-bye to boyfriend and bling” written by Frank Visco

reasoning:

better than setting up a bonfire in the woods by yourself and throwing all of the stuff he gave you that was “cute” into it. here at Ex-Boyfriend Jewelry: “You don’t want it, he can’t have it back”, you can sell the jewelry given to you from previous relationships and tell the stories or reasons of why you are no longer together. unlike the pawn or consignment shops, the website does not take a big chunk of the profit for itself. Ex-Boyfriend Jewelry is almost like a support group for the broken-hearted. it’s almost comforting to know you aren’t the only person who has been cheated on recently, though it may feel like it.  mostly geared towards women in heterosexual relationships, there is a section where men can sell jewelry remnants of old loves, as well.

these Tiffany Elsa Peretti Open Heart earrings for $150 seem particularly covetous. it also comes in a pretty Tiffany teal envelope! why is she selling? “he pretty much promised me the world and didn’t come through for me. But now I have a fantastic new boyfriend… So, I’m selling the old jewelry to make room for the new jewelry!”Other memorable lines: “he was lazy, cheap, and a piece of crap, obviously he must go”, “same old same old”, “all my exes have been idiots”, “need to pay the bills…”

the section on engagement rings is particularly heartbreaking.
