If a woman breaks an engagement should she return the ring?

 Or do you consider it a gift she can keep?

I think if it is a family heirloom it should be returned, bc she is no longer part of the family and it is NOT her property. I also think it depends on the terms of the breakup. If he cheated she can keep it, if it was mutual and just fell out of love, I think the respectable thing to do is to give it back.

It was a gift so she can keep it  if desired BUT it would be the right thing to return it.

I think she should return it. It's not a gift it's a symbol of their union.

 family herilooms (sp) should be returned...
the ring should be returned in general... the ONLY time (in my opinion it should not be returned) is if the man gave her the ring as part of a Holiday.... IE her ring was also her Christmas/Birthday/Valentines Gift... as they it walks a fine line between a gift and her engagement ring... KWIM?
