It depends. My ex gave me my ring as a Mother’s Day present. If we hadn’t gotten married it would have still been mine to keep.

spendabuck85 :  I kept my last ring from a previous engagement. I just had the diamond reset into a right hand ring and I wear it often. I figure I earned it and should wear it.

when I was in high school, I was given a marquis diamond in a swirl. I gave it back to him and it has been a huge regret. I loved that ring. I should have just paid him for it and kept it, because I have never found another one like it.

greenbee123 :  That’s crazy. Wear it and enjoy it because it is probably a great ring. Who cares who gave it to you…

Technically, it’s right to return the ring.

Practically, I’d wait until he filed suit or the statute of limitations ran out. Then, I’d reuse the stones. I also think “fair” is for folks who didn’t lie to me and mistreat me.
