Have you ever or would you return your engagement ring if the wedding was called off?

IMO there are only 2 times when the ring should be returned.1 when it's a family heirloom (sp). Or 2 you're the one who called off the wedding/ you mutually agreed to end it.

I agree with you
Return the ring if it belongs to the family of the groom
Or
Return it if its the bride to be who was the one to call of the wedding
UNLESS
He was found to be cheating
In this case she calls the wedding off and keeps the ring

I was given many rings, jewlery, ect. I returned it all. Most of it, I returned to his mother because it was jewlery that was passed down.

I would if I called off the wedding. I think thats a dick move to keep the ring when you didnt want to get married but thats just my opinion. Now if HE called off the wedding didnt want to be together at all then I would keep the ring cause he gave it to me and changed his mind thats like indian giving.

THIS is a good answer.  I would not have thought of the cheating angle.  I know a guy who banged one of the bridesmaids the day of his wedding.  You would think the bride would be entitled to keep the ring, and his nutsack.

I would return it if the promise to marry is broken.  I wouldn't wear it, and I wouldn't make someone pay for it when we aren't getting married.  I'm just ethical that way though.

I gave the ring back. I could have kept it because he proposed on christmas(so it is labeled a gift) and because he was a lying cheating bastard. I didn't want it though
