By Laura Peck,

Divorce! Even under the most amicable of circumstances, it is a time of upheaval, both emotionally draining and financially stressful. The process of divorce can make you feel overwhelmed, alone and depressed. One of the best things you can do is seek help and support through online communities. You may feel that your experience is unique – and it is – but there are others who have been through similar circumstances and can help you navigate your way.

Online communities can provide you with information about the divorce process, advice about managing your assets and finances, help with telling your children that their parents will no longer live together, putting together a co-parenting plan and all of the other things that you will encounter as you redefine your life. They provide a safe place where you can express your feelings and connect with others with similar experiences. They can help you find the humor in the heartbreak and recognize the empowerment that comes with landing on your feet. They will help you see that things will get better and that, yes, you will even find love again.

At, we are dedicated to providing you with an online community of like-minded people who understand what you are going through, and bringing you the very best resources to help you thrive after divorce. Whether it is deciding the right legal avenue for your divorce, finding a professional in your area for advice, learning how to manage your finances, preparing to re-enter the workforce, adjusting your children for life in two households, or plunging back into the dating pool, is your go-to place. We know the challenges that you will face as you move into the next stage of your life, and we strive to help you blaze the best path to get there.

One of most difficult challenges? Finding your financial footing after a separation and divorce. That is why has specifically partnered with WP Diamonds to provide you a way to securely sell your diamonds and jewelry, and put those unused assets to work.

After divorce, many women do not know what to do with their diamonds. Wearing the jewelry is out of the question, and the thought of passing them down to family members just provides a constant and painful reminder of a failed relationship. Selling the diamonds in your own communities is too emotionally hard – you don’t want to go from jewelry store to jewelry store, or even to pawn shops, trying to get the best price for their diamonds and inevitably taking less than they are worth just to get the process over with. So you stick them in the back of a drawer or hide them away, letting these valuable assets go to waste.

WP Diamonds provides an invaluable service by giving you a trusted and private way to sell your diamonds and jewelry. They understand both the very real financial constraints of divorce, as well as the difficult emotional aspects involved in letting go of reminders of your past. The whole process of selling is secure and private, with experts who not only understand the value of the jewelry, but also are specifically sensitive to what you are going through. They take the time to evaluate each piece, explaining in detail how the process works and making sure that you feel comfortable with the entire transaction.

Selling diamonds and jewelry is one way to gain much needed cash and help with financial security that is so critical after divorce. At the same time, it can provide an enormous emotional release from reminders of the past relationship, and a way to move on to new beginnings.
