    If you are still together, I would say put it in storage until such a time comes that you have need for it again.

    So you guys are back to being just boyfriend/girlfriend? I would probably give it back to him if he’s planning on proposing down the road…wihtout more details about why you guys aren’t together, it’s hard to tell if it would be okay to wear it…is it a temporary break from being engaged? I’d either wear it on the right hand if you guys are still together or give it back so he can give it to you later.

    @boombacha: If it’s just temporary, then I’d just wear it on right hand. Even if my fiancé and I broke up I’d wear the ring (on my right hand) so it wouldn’t get lost. I’m paranoid! Haha.

    @boombacha: hmm, I might be in your situation soon so that’s an interesting question.  I guess it depends on several things – if you do end up getting engaged again will you use that as your e-ring?  And if so, what will it represent to you.  If you are planning on wearing it as your e-ring again if you do get engaged again, then I personally would put it away in a safe place. For me, it would be very symbolic to show that for now things are on hold (for whatever reason) and to get engaged again using that ring in some kind of meaningful way.

    But if you will get a new ring for a fresh start if you do get engaged again, If this is the case, then I think it’s fine to wear it on your right hand. But be prepared for people to ask you questions or just make assumptions that you are still engaged though, even if you are wearing it on your right hand.  it may just mean more explaining to do.

    tough choice!

    I would put it away. No matter which hand it’s on, right now it doesn’t symbolize where you wanted to be in your relationship. If you put it away it will seem so much brighter and have a whole new meaning when you put it back on the hand it was meant for.

    Or why not wear it on a chain around your neck? That would save awkward questions and you could keep it close.

    What about having a stone put in the center and putting the center stone in a safety deposit box?  That way, you can have an everyday ring without worrying about the stone?  When you get re-engaged, you can use the stone in a new setting!  2 rings in 1!

    I would store it until it’s needed again, but it would pain me to do so!

    I’d put it away until you decide to get engaged again.
