February 14, 2013 3:47am CST
I was engaged with my first boyfriend seven years ago...but had to decide between him and to the ONE I thought was the decision I made.... he's already married and one child.... we're still friends...but I don't know what to do with the engagement ring that he gave me...he bought it in New York...his family wanted the ring back when I broke up with him...but he told me that it's mine and I can do anything I want with it....I don't know the price but I know that it costs a lot... I wanted to sell it, is it the right thing to do???? What will you do if you were in my shoe????but I also wanted to give it back to him..

Since you wanted to return it and yet he still insisted not to... well... you should keep it,, well in fact it is your ex boy friend who said that you can do anything you want with it =) If I were you, I will keep it,,, still it has a sentimental value anyway.. BUT on the contrary,,, if your practical better wise sell it... You can use the money for your own good too =0

I think you should sell it because it doesn't count anymore and besides you could use the money for something better. Some guys do not really like getting back things that they gave to their ex girlfriends and though you insist in returning it, he already made a decision not to accept.

You could sell it yes. Tho i think giving it back is better because then you never have to think of him again or see him again. Why do you want the money from it anyway when it will just remind you of him and money doesn't mean much when you are single and bu yourself. So would just give it back you don't need it anyway. yes the money would be nice to have but what woudl you spend it on and would you be happy with it?

He already told you that it's yours to do what you want with. It wouldn't solve anything very much to give it back to him now and would probably cause embarrassment to him and his wife and family. The best thing to do would be to take it to a reputable jeweller to have it valued and then to decide whether to sell it or not. Be aware that there will be two valuation figures: one for insurance purposes (the retail/replacement value) and the price that the jeweller would expect to pay for it (which will probably be half or less than half of the insurance valuation).

When there is no engagement left between him and you then what's the purpose of that ring to you so I think you should give it back to that person. No its not the right thing to sell that ring because it doesn't belong to you now. It's the thing that you have to understand because he will never say you to give it back.

I think this engagement ring belongs you and you have the rights to deal with it as you wish. Even if you already broke up with him, but it doesn't mean that you have to return this engagement ring. It is a kind of your memory. It is alright to keep it or sell it. Nobody should bother you in this matter.
