    How about on a chain around your neck?

    You don’t want it to lose any significance, so my opinion would be to put it out of sight until it becomes your engagement ring again.

    If you don’t want to give it back (which is what I’d do), I’d get a safety deposit box and put it away.  I wouldn’t want to wear it on either hand and if I put it anywhere else, would be afraid it would get lost.

    Store it until the day comes when you need it again… I would have him store it though so he can re propose if you guys decided to continue your engagement.

    I would just ask him to keep it for now until you decide together if he is going to propose again. That way it isn’t sitting in your house somewhere festering in the back of your mind, nor is it on your hand giving you a constant reminder.

    If something happend that you 2 are not engaged anymore, it would be very hard to look at the e-ring everyday on your right hand.  I agree with some of these ladies, put it on a chain around your neck.  Sometimes when you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror and see it on that chain, it still reminds you of something specail. 🙂

    I would put it away, I don’t think I would like to be reminded of the broken engagement- and it would be all I would think about if I were wearing it.

    Truthfully, in the same situation I would sell this one and use the money to purchase a new ring IF the time came for re-engagement to that person. I get that you LOVE this ring though : (

    I would put it away in storage.  I’m sorry, but the way you keep bringing up that it was very expensive and your dream ring sort of leads me to think that right now you just want your very pretty ring on your hand and have already disconnected it from its original meaning.  I would not want a constant reminder of a currently broken engagement on my right hand staring me in the face everyday, no matter how gorgeous or expensive the ring was.

    I would definitely store it until you guys (hopefully) become engaged again.
