My BFF has been dating a guy for a year and a half now and he proposed two weekends ago. She found out yesterday that the ring he gave her is the ring he gave another girl 4 years ago. After that relationship broke up the girl had given him the ring back.   I would be livid that I was getting a used ring. Frugal? Tacky? Acceptable??

I would be very upset. I would not want a ring that was originally meant for someone else. I wouldn't even call it being frugal...if he wants to be frugal, sell that ring and use the money to get one that he picks out specifically for his girlfriend he is going to propose to.

He actually thought about the ring put his heart into it for the ex. For her, it seems like an after thought.

Very tacky. The ring isn't about the expense but that it was picked out and given to someone for them.

I would be upset! My ring is "used" but that's because it was passed down to DH from his great-grandma. This is different.

It would depend on why he did it. I don't like used items, but perhaps he couldn't afford another nice ring...
