- An anonymous Australian woman is kicking off her new year by getting rid of jewellery from her cheating husband.
- AM, as she calls herself, posted an ad for a $US350 Pandora bracelet on UK resale website Gumtree.com.
- The woman describes each of the charms on the bracelet by exposing her ex-husband’s behaviour during their marriage.
There’s no better time for a fresh start than the beginning of a new year-a sentiment one Australian woman embraced wholeheartedly. Rather than dragging a souvenir from her toxic relationship into 2019, she decided to sell it.
On New Year’s Eve, an anonymous woman from Melbourne posted a super sassy ad on the UK website Gumtree.com, an online platform for buying and selling things.
AM, as she calls herself, listed one ‘Authentic Pandora’ bracelet for $US350.
“I’m selling the Pandora bracelet that my ex-husband thoughtfully put together for me while he lied to me throughout our marriage,” she wrote in the description. “It turns out that pretty trinkets don’t pay for betrayal.”
The woman-whose listing implies that her husband not only cheated, but lied about it for an extended amount of time-proceeds to exalt the finer details of the bracelet, including the 14ct yellow gold heart safety chain, “designed to keep the bracelet together better than our marriage,” as well as a hippo charm: “Not that this represented me,” clarified AM. “The stress he caused me helped me to lose lots of weight.”
The charm depicting a heart with a 14ct yellow gold arrow symbolized “the pain in my heart when I found out about the lies. And then again, when I found out how long they’d been going on for.”
AM’s ex-husband had apparently tried to pressure her into having children, which she revealed in her description of the chick charm – “Like the babies he was trying to force me to have because he wanted babies before he was 30 and wouldn’t entertain the discussion about what I wanted.”
As for the limited edition teddy bear charm, the woman wrote that it was “much like the limited nature of his trustworthiness.”
She also revealed that her ex-husband hated dancing (red flag!) and was prone to fits of jealous, violent rage (redder flag!) as she detailed the charm of a bride and groom dancing:
“Not that we ever danced,” she wrote. “He hated dancing but I loved it. Oh, and god forbid some guy approached me on the dance floor. The one time I didn’t move a guy on quickly enough, a scotch glass came hurtling through the air at me to let me know of my ex’s displeasure.”
In between the witty descriptions, AM throws in humdrum specs, like “purple enamel spacer,” and “clip with a diamond in a yellow gold setting.”
She ends the listing by assuring the buyer of the bracelet’s “very good” condition: “Much like I am now after the divorce.”
The bracelet appears to still be for sale, in case you or someone you know would enjoy the shiny relic of a broken marriage. If that’s the case, then make sure you have $US350 in cash or in your PayPal account, since “apparently tears of my enemy is not a legitimate payment type.”
