Hi,

First off, let me say I am sorry for the situation. This can be extremely frustrating especially if there is sentimental value attached to the item.

I am assuming you sold the ring rather than pawned it (you got a loan from them using the ring as collateral). If that is the case, you lost all rights to the ring when you sold it unfortunately.

This was an enforceable and legal transaction. You got $100, they got the ring. The Courts will not intervene in this...
