A Brilliant Exchange is a 501c3 that collects diamond rings, loose stones, and other fine jewelry, then sells the items and distributes proceeds to organizations doing social good.
I felt freedom knowing my heartache was going to be turned into a hope for someone else.
The rings once brought me so much joy and then my life was shattered and I could barely look at them or the mark that is still left on my hand. Now when I look down and see the indention I can think that those rings were used to help save a life.
You can donate your diamonds, but save your ring. I still wear my ring with cubic zirconia in it and no one is the wiser except me and my husband. I feel like it’s a win-win situation: I still have my beautiful engagement ring that holds sentimental value to me and the diamonds with real money value are going to a very worthy cause.
There were dreams attached to the ring when my husband gave it to me. But it changes. It changes. That’s not necessarily bad, it just changes.
It’s such an amazingly easy way to bless others!
