The Inappropriate Necklace

“The time has come,” the Walrus said,
“To talk of selling things.
“Of shirts, and shoes, and sequined skirts,
“Of necklaces and things.”

What are you supposed to do with gifts of jewelry after a relationship has ended? Especially when the item in question wasn’t asked for, and was a completely inappropriate gift? Returning it would be hurtful, but it’s just as painful seeing it among all the jewels you actually like…

Just a note of reference: my birthstone isn’t topaz. It may be white, but it’s no April diamond. The only topaz I want is the heirloom ring that’s part of my inheritance.
