Dumped Boyfriend Sues for Return of Seventeen Thousand Dollar Diamond Engagement Ring

New York Boy meets Girl.

Boy proposes to Girl.

Girl accepts.

Boy puts a $17,500 diamond engagement ring on Girl’s finger.

A few months later, Girl has second thoughts and calls the engagement off.

Boy asks for engagement ring back.

Girl ignores Boy.

Finally, Boy files a lawsuit in civil court.

It is anticipated that the Court will rule in Boy’s favor, because an engagement ring is different from other gifts.

This particular type of gift is made specifically to “induce” marriage, and going through with the marriage is an implied condition of the gift.
