A diamond engagement ring didn’t have the outcome a Vermont man had hoped for. His girlfriend said yes, but the ring landed him in jail.

What do you do when an engagement goes sour? If you’re one anonymous guy in Iowa, you put the ring up for sale on Craigslist, for a dollar. According to the post, which has since been removed by the author (most likely due to the high volume of interest):
“A jeweler and I designed the ring in 2009 for an amazing woman. She wore it during our engagement, an engagement that we ended a bit ago with great regret. A grad student, I know I should be selling it so as to buy groceries and fill the laundromat washing machine with quarters. Like most students I’m living pretty hand-to-mouth. Yet there’s something about treating this token of deep love like a used car that feels wrong, feels like a violation of everything beautiful about the world that drew this woman and I together in the first place. I joyfully put my pennies away for months so she could wear this. Knowing that a lot of us are struggling to pay the bills right now, I’m hoping that the gift of this ring might make it easier for another couple to begin a life together.”
It was insanely beautiful. A round diamond in the middle, surrounded by a ring of tiny diamonds, set in platinum. It was custom-designed, but looked vintage. I had never thought much about diamonds — in fact, all of my jewelry, save the pair of diamond studs he had gifted me a couple years before, was from Forever 21 — but it was as if my boyfriend of four years knew exactly what kind of ring I would want when he proposed. I must have said, “Oh my god” 100 times. I wore the ring with love and pride up until we broke up nine-and-a-half months later. Keep reading »

A few weeks ago my boyfriend and I were doing laundry at his parents’ house when I overheard him talking to his mom about his Christmas present for me. Neither, it seemed, realized how easily noise traveled from the kitchen through the dining room to the living room. I could only pick up a few words, like “reservations.” At a separate time, I told him how my present for him was waiting at my parents’ house to be opened on Christmas morning and he replied that it would be really awkward for him to give his gift to me in front of my parents. On top of this, he started teasing me about my present coming in the mail and forwarding me FedEx emails just to taunt me.
Naturally, I started to think he had bought an engagement ring. And in addition to being in love, I felt like I was walking on air.
Then, a few days later, the FedEx package arrived. Keep reading »

A little over a year ago, I was engaged to a douche of a guy. He lied to me, took me for granted, cheated, and generally treated me terribly for the 2.5 years we were together. When he broke off the engagement, he began to freak out about how he had messed things up and how guilty he felt, and this threw him into a period of extreme instability. He was so emotionally sensitive that I didn’t dare try to offer the ring back. He was absolutely destroyed when I tried to give him his house key back, so I was afraid to try to offer back something as emotionally loaded as the engagement ring. Now, this ring was, of course, very cheap. We’re talking approximately $100 cheap. I have no interest whatsoever in keeping this ring. He has now calmed down and moved on, and I have moved on, and I want to get rid of this ring. It is just sitting in a box in a drawer and I want it gone. Would it be out of line to try to give it back after all this time? There’s no chance I’ll be able to sell it for anything much (pretty worthless), I can’t think of anyone I want to give it to, and I just can’t keep it anymore. What do I do? — Ring Around the Roses
