    Default Woman ends engagement refuses to return ring

    Woman refuses to return $17,500 ring - UPI.com

    A New York woman who refused to return a $17,500 engagement ring
    after marriage plans fell apart said she will go to court to keep the jewelry.

    Colette Dipierro, 28, said ex-fiance Christopher Reinhold, 25, gave her the ring on her birthday in May so she does not feel obligated to return it despite the end of the engagement, WPIX-TV, New York, reported Tuesday.

    Reinhold said in court papers the ring was given to Dipierro "in contemplation and consideration of marriage." He is suing for its return.
    Curious to see how this plays out in court.

    Ouch.
    Yes, interesting.

    Lesson here? Never give a woman an engagement ring on her birthday.

    But it's an engagement ring. Not a birthday present.

    yes, she could consider it a gift since it was her birthday and then it would be hers, even if they did break up... it would come down to he said/she said

    of course, I've pawned off an engagement ring before, so I wouldn't want my ex to run across a case where a dude got the ring back

    New Yorker, italian sounding name... the guy did ignore all the warning signs that he was dealing with an italian princess, he may have deserved it.

    Easy mistake to make though, but all is not lost, provided he can hire a good hitman.

    Don't give something you'll want back.

    If you've got 18 grand to spare on a ring, I hardly feel sorry for you.

    Or Christmas, Valentines, Easter, Flag Day, Yom Kippur, or any other holiday- They'll argue it was a gift.

    Which brings us to lesson 2: Unless you got beaucoup $$$$$, don't spend $17.5K on an engagement ring. My boy did it right. He bought his girl a modest ring, and when they hit 5 years he upgraded that joint.

    Makes sense.

    Honestly, $17.5K on an engagement ring?
    While maybe it would blow me away emotionally, at the same time I'd feel like I could never wear it -- what if it gets lost? Or stolen?

    It's sort of stupid to carry that much money around openly in such a portable little package.

    Ditto.

    Either money isn't a big deal, or he should have bought them a car instead.

    That's my concern too. I mean, you don't hear many stories of girls getting stuck up for their jewelry, but it's a possibility. Especially here in Philly.

    And at 17,500, the thing was probably gawdy.

    Look at the picture in the link. It wasn't too bad at all. Nothing that would make her a target walking down the street.

    My issue here is, why is it when a man does what is considered romantic, as soon as reality sets in, he's stupid. But if a man doesn't buy into the romanticism to begin with he's a misogynist?
