"I never hated a man enough to give his diamonds back".  -- Zsa Zsa Gabor

Hmmm, I gave it back. And it was not about hate but ... weariness. I do not regret, perhaps, because the ring's diamond was with a crack. The other little two were normal, but the main was with the flaw. As our relationship was.

I do not know, would I feel sorry for the gem, if it had no fracture. Probably. But, you know, I'm without that ring, and my life is cracked a little, but I feel relieved. Really. And this is what really important to me.

Would you have returned a diamond on your own will to your ex?

 Oh, Fishyme,

I was sure people dream of understanding, but if they dream of an emerald or a rifle more than a good match, they really kick ass. :-)

Quoting V: "Years ago, I designed a ring for the Aussie. It took four months to build and cost over $32 thousand...we hadn't even officially broke up and she had sold the ring. To this day, I don't know what she got, or to whom she sold it." :(((....hmmmmmm....that is pretty much the most dreadful thing I have ever heard of involving an engagement ring. That would be like selling a man's heart. I would rather give it back!

Lolol...thanks Hope. Sometimes snap descisions can be good. It would really irritate me to 'this' day if I thought some other chick's pic was in my frame. *wink*

Quoting rmac22:

There are various state laws re returning engagement rings. In some states there is the no fault law, which means no matter who breaks it off the man can demand it back and the courts will back him up. And in other states, if he breaks it off she gets to keep it. If she breaks it off, he can demand it back and the courts will back him up. And this, a memory from my college days. Give the ring all wrapped at Christmas, it is a gift; otherwise no fault. Two of my friends worried about this one Christmas. Best I know they still are married. Whether this was just some college kids worries or is the actual law in some states I do not know. Other than my memories, I found all this on the internet. Do a search on “Returning Engagement Rings,” and you likely will find something similar. rmac


It is interesting, rmac22 )) Thank you. I should think of cultural patterns ))

Beautiful pic LADY DI!! And I realized something.. I HAVE taken a gift back!! When I was 19, I was getting divorced.. (childhood mistake.. LOL) and I took off to move to Florida.. (south Texas girl at the time) When I left, I went to the place my ex lived.. and I took away the surfboard I had custom built for him on MY birthday the year before... I grabbed it, put it in my T-top Mercury Capri hatchback.. and OFF I WENT... I had something cheesy like "I love you forever" placed inside the glassing.. I'd say he missed the board more than me.. But 25 years later.. he still contacts me to make sure I am doing okay and no longer surfs!! ;)

Quoting Voyager54:

~Di~ Years ago, I designed a ring for the Aussie. It took four months to build and cost over $32 thousand...we hadn't even officially broke up and she had sold the ring. To this day, I don't know what she got, or to whom she sold it. Somebody in Oz got a really nice ring. Did you girls know that less than 1% of women in the world have a high quality diamond of 1 carat or higher? Some cheap guys out there! I studied stones for months before I commenced my design and brought it to a jeweler to build. And Girls...do not ever buy from a mall...Kay's and the like. It's a rip off. And don't ever let anyone show you a diamond on a black velvet background.


I knew that, I knew that )))) Thank you a lot for the advice.

Quoting Hope: "I would never take away a gift!" Oh I have!! I had given an EX-boyfriend a picture of me in a crystal frame. One evening when I came home from a work trip, I was at his place visiting. I found my picture hidden in a drawer. I didn't say a word and stuck it in my purse. Although he was mad about it....so was I!! *wink* lolol

I gave my diamond back after 13 years of being together.  He pawned it and went to Vegas.  

I have no regrets.  

He misses me more than I miss his ring, for sure.

Emeralds... Tiffany's diamonds... they are still the best friends of women. Men easy come and  easy go, but the real friends stay with us )))

Quoting laughing_cloud:

Well, Curious, you're right, and I should keep the ring according to your words, laws and some other laws, but on one side, the diamond was cracked (worth nothing), on the other side... money from the cracked relationship never make anyone happy... Unless this crack was done with a purpose. ))



Somehow I missed the part about the main diamond being seriously flawed. I think if, at my age, a man gave me a cracked diamond, I'd throw it back at him immediately. Well, maybe not throw it back; just hand it back and say no thank you. LOL Actually, if I'd been going with a man for any length of time and he gave me a perfect diamond for an engagement ring, I'd still give it back feeling very disappointed indeed because if he knew me well enough to propose, he'd know I don't like diamonds and don't care to wear them. Now a good quality emerald set in gold, that I would take because I adore emeralds. But if I broke off the engagement, I would feel obligated to give it back. If the man broke it off, I would not give it back. If he insisted, I'd put in my safety desposit box at my bank and put the key in the hands of a trusted someone until the ex-fiance gave up and went away. LOLOL

I think though if someone gave you something very expensive and the relationship did not work, the right thing to do would be to give it back or at least offer it back. The only real diamond item that has ever caught my eye is a Tiffany's heart shaped diamond engagement ring. It had no price which is a bad sign. Think if I was ever given something like that and the relationship didn't work, I'd try to buy it off him. lol Sarah

Diana 3316,

I thought yesterday that even the ring was good, I wouldn't regret to give it back. When it's over, let this episode of your life rest in peace.

BTW, my best gems were bought by myself. ))
