    I’d say it’s you.

    Nought wrong with a low offer you can but say no.

    *deletes post offering £350*

    Not sure why you’d be angry. He(?) has made you a shoot offer you are entitled to say no. whats the beef?

    Edit- a phrase I never thought i’d type “whats the beef?” 😀

    You’re selling something not exactly bike related on a bike site and then get upset when someone makes a humourous post. I find that funny which you will probably find rude too.

    I’ve had much lower offers (by ratio) on Ebay for stuff. I just reply ‘no thanks’.

    oops sorry! Hic!

    Come on OP, haven’t we all said (typed) something we’ve regretted when drunk? 🙂

    It’s you.
    You’ve some emotion attached with the item, the other person hasn’t.

    Can see it’s annoying, but he said sorry before you posted this.

    To be fair to the OP, this sounds like the poo icing on a pretty crappy cake of a day. Maybe on it’s own it wouldn’t have sparked off such a horrendous chain of events such as this thread.

    Oh, and I think the guy has had a few beers, so it’s a free pass from me.

    Ah yes, hadn’t spotted it was an engagement ring….

    Get over yourself. You’re selling something, he made you an offer lower than you want. just refuse it and see if he improves the offer, although I guess that’s unlikely now you’ve made a bit of a nugget of yourself and insulted him.

    What? Have some commitment, man! A captain should go down with his ship.

    Wasn’t really a rant more off whinge

    However, guessing as you’re selling an engagement ring you’re obviously very emotional. I expected a falling down moment

    ‘Tis a very nice ring and a fair price but even when you state no offers people are going to have a bid.

    OK £400 is chancing it somewhat but generally when haggling the buyer starts off ridiculously low and then you meet somewhere in the middle.

    To cheer you up a bit just watch how Brian (as in Life of Brian) handles it…

    A quick phone call to the chap should suffice

    “I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want. but I can tell you I won’t except that offer or that sort of insult. but i can tell you what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you apologise now that will be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you and I will kill you”

    Play your cards right, and you’ll get a ring out of it.

    So you paid 2200 for a bit of metal and then got it valued as a bit of metal for 2450, as somebody who knows nothing about jewelry, its just worth probably a teenner to me.

    Where as a bike,tv, camera etc all have a value in the use youll make of them and can be easier seen as value, or the amount youre wiling to reduce the price by.

    SH ring,litle value unleess you tell peeps the percieved value you paid for it.

    Rather boringly, that’s my point – decent jewellers today said top dollar £1150 private sale, min value £800, so I went with lowest value, kinda hoping some poor sod might be able to make someone else happy.

    …I took the offer of £400 quite badly, possibly reads too much into it, but I did.

    Would you take £450?

    You always get chancers with jewellery. I tried to sell a similar ring a few years ago but wasn’t prepared to give it away, so I still have it!

    That said “no offers” never works. Should’ve put it up for £1200 ono…

    £800 is tops you’d get in a private sale imho. Having bought and sold similar in the past.

    No offers or firm prices are guaranteed to piss people off. There is always room for negotiation.

    Cheers, but have been offered 600 in a shop already; who admitted they would put it up for around £1k.

    Wouldn’t piss me off. I’d either accept their stance or walk away, not offer them half their asking price. Besides, he’s already apologised so I feel a bit bad, but you can’t defend that stance as a sober person; assuming you are.

    These people give top dollar prices apparently…

    Eh? Maybe pisses off is too strong a phrase, but it certainly doesn’t entice me into thinking about buying something.

    What if you’d been offered £750 or £775?

    My dad died when i was six years old and he left me a rose gold signet ring.. I took it to the pawnbrokers when i was fourteen and short of hash and was offered the princely sum of £12..

    I took the cash 😥

    Reasonable point; especially as I like to haggle. Noted.

    No worse than the comedy offers I got when selling a £2.5k bike.

    You are obviously a bit tender about why you are selling.

    Ah Yunki, you were 14 FFS. I’m sure your Pop would be laughing now at your impetuousness!

    I bet he’d kick your ass more if you spent £2200 on a ring that you ended up selling 2 years on for £3.50 and a bag of ready salted 😉

    Dammit, I only have salt n vinegar.
