At first this struck me as a bit rude: A web site where women sell the jewelry that their ex-boyfriends have given them. I mean, a present is a present, right? No matter how you broke up, at one point your former beau was that enamored with you enough to drop some coin on a shiny trinket, and that gift should be a memory of those happy times. Right?
But I started to see it from the other side. I am fortunate enough to remain friendly (or actual bona fide friends) with the majority of my ex girlfriends. But I know my case is more the exception than the rule. I’m sure that for some, those once-lovely diamond earrings are now a painful reminder of stillborn love. But what to do with such damaged goods? Try selling it on www.ExBoyfriendJewelry.com.
(You might want to check back with them soon. Right now the site’s shut down because of too much traffic…)
And here’s the kicker. Each piece of jewelry comes with a description, both of the item and the circumstances of the breakup. A way to hock your wares and air your grievances? Dish-dish-dish! I think site creators Megahn and Marie Perry may have struck a goldmine (should they decide to take a small cut, like eBay does).
Megahn’s kinda hot, too. I wonder if she’s into hirsute bloggers who like Gibson guitars, Indian food and casual drug use?
There’s some great shopping on there, girls! But remember, the best gifts are the gifts you give yourself.
