Well, I didn't ask for the ring but she returned it anyway. I felt so bad when I saw it, but it's done already. Well, am too young to let that wear me down.

@idstar,

you must be very upset to call your once sweetheart a yoruba son of a female dog. no matter how bitter you are, please take it easy. there's no hurt that cannot heal with time. just keep the ring and take it as a souvenir from a once sweet affair.

Ideally, if a girl is calling of the engagement, she returns the ring, as a sign that she is no longer interested. Accepting it meant " yes, i will marry u". Returning it means " I no do again oh!"

However, if a guy calls of the engagement, he has no rite to ask for the ring or anyother thing(car, house, education etc) back. Its his loss. He should have thought more before proposing. Breaking an engagement is not a small thing oh. You know how many rings/cars/houses she for don get if not for ur silly ring on her finger? I will only return it if i can choke him with it.

Shikena!

that's  why you  dont really to spend so much money on an  engagement ring in the first place, cos wedding ring makes it signed, sealed and delivered.

True talk!!. The ring was exchanged because a marriage was agreed. if the marriage doesn't work out, the ring is to be returned. its a symbol, not just a mere gift.

I would demand for my ring ooo!! because i wouldn't buy a cheap one in the first place!!!

The decent thing to do is to return it, unless he asks u to keep it.

But if u feel like punishing him, u can throw it in the ocean lol. . . .or carry on rocking it.

Well, after a break-up, it's usually traditional for the lady to hand back the engagement ring to the guy, simple!.  He can do whatever he likes with it e.g sell it, pawn it to the pawn-brokers or BIN IT - these are things he could do with it so, you can see the giver is never at a loss with his ring.  In fact, if there's any loss from the relationship, it's actually the lady that has lost a bit of her DIGNITY in terms of her HONOUR and RESPECT, ok! Not the man because, this is a man's world and women knows that hence our battle with them - the BATTLE OF THE SEXES.lol!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well i think the girl is supposed to return it to the ex-fiancee cos that ring was a sign of commitment for marriage and since that's no longer going to hold, i guess the girl should give it back to the guy. period

An engagement ring is a promise to marry contract. If the wedding never took place irrespective of who broke the engagement or who is at fault, the engagement ring must be returned to the man and it's actionable in court but if the marriage happened even if it's for an hour, the man can kiss the ring goodbye.

Some diamond rings costs as much and it will be very silly to throw a $100k ring inside a river because it can pawned for a near amount.

the ring is just another jewelry. the only diff is the commitment attached to it. So if there is no more commitment then its just another piece of metal jewelry that could b flushed down the toilet (like what happened to some1 i know) . So whoever it goes to really doesn't matter besides i don't think it should b kept anyway by anybody.

If the ring is an heirloom, I will definitely give it back. Otherwise, its just another piece of jewellery, so I keep it.

It sounds here as if engagement ring or whatever symbol is more important that the two parties involved. The ring is just an ornament but what makes it unique is the feeling between the two persons who exchanged the ring. Now, if by any reason,those two persons seize to see themselves as love birds, why would they bother who takes the rings? Does it somehow mean they two may still be nursing some passion for each other? If you are in this situation now,I pray you sincerely answer the above questions!
