Man Sells 'Satan' Ex's Engagement Ring in Brilliantly Bitter Craigslist Ad

LOL 23

engagement ringWhat to do with the engagement ring and wedding band after a breakup?! Not an easy decision. One man who never made it to the altar with his lady love is now lovingly referring to her as "Satan herself." So he's doing what any man in his right mind would do and is selling the ring. On Craigslist. For way less than he paid.

The only twist is his ad to sell the 1.5-carat diamond sparkler states how the ring may be cursed and he goes on to explain why in incredible but heartbreakingly hilarious detail. 

For sale I have a 1.5ct total weight engagement ring set in 14K white gold. The ring is in like new condition, only worn for a short period of time by Satan herself. Comes with the original box. Very pretty ring with a lower setting so the diamonds won't snag on everything. Diamonds along the sides and in the channel setting show off light from all sides. Originally purchased from Littman's for a sum of money far greater than I am comfortable admitting. 

Warning: ring may be cursed as it tends to leave a path of destruction behind it. Possible events associated with this ring include but are not limited to: damage sustained to house, vehicle, heart, downed powerlines, fallen trees, and swarms of locus. I would highly recommend taking action to counter the whirlwind of bad mojo that surround this piece of jewelry. Should consider having curse removed by voodoo priest or something before presenting to loved one. Other than that a very nice piece of jewelry. 

Looking to sell this soon before it brings any more bad luck into my life and I'd rather have cash. If not sold by Christmas I plan to throw it into the fires of Mordor.

Brilliant! Bravo, my brokenhearted one. When a relationship ends, and we're picking up the pieces and figuring out just how we'll go on, sometimes we end up losing our sense of humor. This guy clearly did not. Which tells me that once he gets this cursed ring out of his possession, the fiery gates will open, freeing him even more of the torment from his lost love.

We know he's in the Scranton, Pennsylvania, area. So if you're in the market for an engagement ring that looks like this one, seems like a bargain. You can pick up a curse removal for a good price from your local Wiccan shop. (Trust me, those spells work. But don't go too crazy there because ... trust me, those spells WORK.) And hopefully the ring will be clear from evil and go on to make another couple very, very happy forevermore. Because ... that was what this ring was intended to do. The ring deserves a happy ending and not a fiery demise in Mordor. Save the ring! Save love!

Good luck, diamond. I hope you shine on. And guy from Scranton, something tells me you are going to forget all about the hurt Satan caused in no time.

What do you think of this guy's ad? Would you sell your ex's ring this way? What do you think should become of the ring after a breakup?

If not sold by Christmas I plan to throw it into the fires of Mordor.-That last line is kind of funny and sad at the same time.

The last line isn't "kind of funny and sad" it's freaking BRILLIANT!   Totally sharing, Michele.  lol!

I think its sad that he would rather throw it out then get some kind of money back for it.  To you its brilliant and yes, it is hilarious but its also his way of really getting across how awful the experience was.  I'm sad for him because usually an engagement ring is given by someone filled with so much hope and from this last line I take it the killing of his hope wasn't pretty and it makes me sad for him.

Consideing the financial cost, I'd be inclined to have the ring re-done in a man's style and save most of the diamonds for a better occasion. Wearing the ring would also be a reminder not all relationships arew what they seem... or be more careful!

aww... sad really sad

Idk why he didn't take it back to the jeweler. Sometimes upscale places like that have a type of warranty system built in. If he doesn't want it he can just return it and have it resold..

Scarlett Rose Valdez

@Theresa, most places have a trade-in, where they give you what you paid for the ring, but you have to get something twice the value and pay the difference

You have 60 or 90 days to return it. My fiancé pointed that out after he gave it to me. Smh..funny though! I think this add is PERFECT! If I were closer, I'd buy it just to meet the man who wrote the ad! He's hilarious!
