I was hoping to sell it for more than what I paid but to find a buyer is more difficult. Fortunately, I wasn't in the position you are in now and was able to get my full trade in value at the same store that I bought it from since I was upgrading my wife's stone.
that is an understatement

people browsing e46f classified or craigslist are rarely the type to pay full retail for a diamond ring from an individual
